Easter Parade

This will be fun!  We used a lot of pastel embossing powder through out this project to feature the Easter and spring colours, but, the team was asked to try avoid everyone looking soft and delicate.  Then I had this fun idea to ask the team to please add an egg to all of the projects. I just love how each member stretched and interpreted the idea differently.

We 'DARE' you to use pastels, eggs, bunnies, flowers, crosses,  or whatever else you associate with Easter (or spring and all things new if you do not celebrate Easter) and show us your scripture journaling, cards, canvases, decorated eggs, baskets, personal journaling, scrapbook, or any other craft you created.
Now let the team Inspire You.

Claudia  This is my ANGEA - short for "Absolutely Non-Girly Easter Assemblage". Can you guess what the focal piece is made of (not the egg of course...but what it is placed in)? There are more images on my blog that show the true magic of the wonderful EC Easter Parade embos…

Sara is 'Hopping on Over"

It's Guest Designer Day and we have an amazing treat from Sara Emily.
I met Sara (via the blog) last October when she posted some amazing , and disturbing pieces. Her Halloween Head lawn ornament in Decay and Spiders! BEWARE! post was sure to win, purely on the fact that it was so creepy and she made it from her every day craft supplies.
Since that time Sara and I have had several chit chats via email and other social media vices and become good friends (I cant wait to meet up with her in person one day). She is amazing in her craft, a genuine and delightful person that adds value to so so many, and a wonderfully talented writer. (she is my go to person when I need help articulating). Sara is so active in her blogging and working for so many people that the simple fact she has time for me is an incredible honour. So without any more from me, let me present
Sara Emily and her Easter card.

Ring in Spring

It's time to shed the Winter Blues  and to kick us off is our Newest Design Team Member  Pam Bray.
Please take an extra moment to give her a warm welcome.
This challenge is to find anything fresh, new, bright, floral and to basically get excited about going outdoors.  Do you have a park bench stamp, blossoms, crazy birds or even want to dust off a skull (don't miss spotting it), bring it to into this challenge!
Pam Bray Ring in Spring with Green is being "Lucky"!!! "Lucky" that here in Tennessee we are extremely blessed to have four seasons!!!
 I am so looking forward to spring!!
For our bluebirds to come home to nest!
For our daffodils, hyacinths and clovers to show their spring flowers!!!



To me spring is the "fearless" season as it overcomes winter's "death" and decay over and over again each year. I love it when the first greens and little dashes of colour start to reconquer what has been covered in pale whites, dusky…
