The Bunny

Hello and happy Wednesday! I can't believe how close it is to Easter. I haven't even started filling those plastic eggs for the bunny to hide. Yep, my kids still like to the hunt Easter eggs! I made this layout for two challenges. First the DCWV April Stack -A-Holic Challenge and the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday. All the papers and cardstock for this layout came from the DCWV Flower Shower Spring Stack. There was also a sketch we has to use for the challenge which came from Got Sketch. For the other challenge I had to use my Cricut, of course! Also, there had to be an egg somewhere on your project. I used the following cartridges on my layout:

Easter 2010
Lacy Labels
Paper Dolls Dress-Up
Plantin Schoolbook

The flourish I made with a Sizzix die, the button is from Basic Grey, the bling is from EK Success. Thanks for looking!

Here is a tip when using DCWV cardstock with your Cricut. Some people do not like the white core and sometimes the paper tends to tear a little with intricate cuts especially when the size of the item you are cutting is small. Either place the cardstock onto your mat front-side down (onto the sticky part) or flip your finished piece over. The tears usually only happen on the top of the cardstock not the part adhered to your mat. Just make sure you flip the image to the mirror-image if you are working with fonts or something that needs piecing together (or just make sure all the cuts for a paper piecing have been turned over so the sticky side is now the top).
