Make it Crafty Blog Hop- Spring and Easter Creations

Hi there and Welcome to another

   This month we're revealing our Spring and Easter creations.  If you've come from Cyndy's  blog then you're in the right spot.  The Blog Hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost, you'll find a complete list here, with Julie, in The Scrap Zone.

   We hope this 'Hop' will inspire you and put a 'Spring' in your craftiness! - I love bunny humor!

   This month I've returned to what I love best- scrappin' with the flipflaps!   I've used the somewhat 'girlie' Hopscotch paper pack (found in the Seasonal Expressions 1 mini) in a not-so-girlie way to showcase my not-so-girlie boys by using one of the 'auxiliary' colors (Indian Corn Blue) listed on the Zip strip.  I think it tones down the ppk overall, while keeping the brightness of the colors.  I plan on using this layout for the pictures I will take this Easter coming, thus no pictures present.
   This layout was inspired by a sketch I saw amongst the Creating Keepsakes Bonus Sketches of Oct 2011 (found on Pintrest);  I've switched it up a little bit by adding the flaps and using the Picture My Life cards (as photo mats and journalling cards).

I hope you like it!  Here it is:
(Sorry for the glare off the flipflaps)

Here it is with the flaps open:

                                           For a total of 15 photos on a 2pg, 12x24 layout!!

   And here you can see even the journalling card is hiding more space for pictures!

   And here it is one last time:
(The dark choc bunny is MINE!)

   Well, I hope you've enjoyed hopping along with me, as much as I've enjoyed creating for you.  I don't mean to 'egg' you on but it's time for you to hippity 'Hop' along to Sue's and see just how her project will inspire you!
