Happy Easter!

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter! It has been a bit unusual around here this year. I had surgery on Wednesday, so it was a quiet Easter at home. My kids came home from school to spend the weekend with us. It is always so wonderful to have them home. It's such a change from past Easters. Would you believe that this is the first Easter without a basket for them? I know, they outgrew it long ago, but it is always such fun to give them a little treat. I miss the times when they were little and an Easter basket was a HUGE thing! I recently scrapped this picture of Jade on her first Easter Sunday. I kept this one fairly simple. I really wanted it to be bright and fun like the big smile on her face. I LOVE these Zva eggs. They are so adorable and glittery. I thought they added the perfect amount of fun to this layout. I also used some of the precious felt Zva flowers on this one. My layout was so bright that I decided to add some chalk ink to my flowers to make them match a bit better. The flowers took the ink perfectly!

Hope you have had a blessed Easter!
