Scrap-a-Little BLOG HOP


Welcome to Scrap-a-Little's First Blog Hop! Each designer has chosen a song and based a layout off of their chosen song.

April's challenge is to pick one of our 6 songs and base your layout on that. You will need to link your layout to Mr.Linky on the bottom of Helen's post.
This all has to be done before April 30.

As you know, Easter is in April, so in honor of Easter, my song is Here Comes Peter Cottontail!

Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail,
Hippity hoppity,
Easter's on its way


Bringin' ev'ry girl and boy
A basketful of Easter joy
Things to make your Easter
Bright and gay


He's got jelly beans for Tommy
Colored eggs for sister Sue
There's an orchid for your mommy
And an Easter bonnet too. Oh!


Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity
Happy Easter Day


Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Look at him hop and listen to him say,


"Try to do the things you should"
Maybe if you're extra good
He'll roll lots of Easter eggs your way


You'll wake up on Easter morning
And you'll know that he was there
When you find those choc'late bunnies
That he's hiding ev'rywhere,
Oh!


Here' comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity
Happy Easter Day.




And THIS is my Easter basket!
I used lots of Crate Paper for this project. I started with their big yellow die cut paper and used my Creative Memories circle cutter to cut out a half circle to form the handle of the basket. I repeated that process to cut out the woven paper base of the basket.
The fan fold flowers are some of my favorites. They are quick and simple to make but have tons of impact on a page. I learned how to make them from one of Helen's fabulous tutorials.
The grass is a  12 inch paper strip that I ran through my paper crimper and then snipped into blades. After I adhered it to the page I used my fingers to scrunch it down a bit. Super easy!
This is a fairly "thick" layout but I love all the dimension.


If you decide to become a follower on my blog, leave me a comment and I will put your name into the hat for a little prize at the end of the month! Now, hop on over to Kayla's fabulous blog and see which song she chose for your next stop on the hop! Thanks so much for coming by!
