It's almost Easter…or as I like to call it: Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg time!
As a kid, Easter was all about the Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg for me. It is peanut butter/chocolate perfection. I so much looked forward to that one time a year we got this glorious little treat in our Easter baskets. Our kids just don’t get that excitement and what a delicacy it was during our childhood now that there is a Reese’s Christmas Tree, Reese’s Jack-o-lantern, Reese’s Heart…a Reese’s for every occasion! I mean, I’m not going to complain a lot about having too much Reese’s, but those Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs will always have a special place in my heart.
When it comes to holiday themed scrapbooking layouts, I tend to geek out a little. I love, love, love finding ways to incorporate the theme into my design. I like to challenge myself to find a way to really make that holiday come to life on my pages.
For my Easter layout, I created an Easter egg hunt design.
I used the cloud paper as my background and to help create an outdoor scene.
Next I created grass strips. To do this I cut several strips of green patterned paper and then added a fringe along the top side of each strip. I inked the fringes to help them stand out since you are layering the same paper, green over green. They are then adhered to the page starting with the strip at the top and then slightly overlapping the next one on top. After they are all on the page I will use my fingers to rough up and bend down some of the fringe pieces, some I even curl down a little.
After the grass strips are done, I added some Easter eggs by tucking them behind some of the fringed strips. I finished the whole design with an Easter bunny sticker.
And there you have it, a super simple Easter egg hunt right on the layout!
