Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #105 - EGG-ceptional Easter

Easter is right around the corner, so it's time to bring out those eggs and celebrate with Fantabulous Cricut!  This week's challenge is to make a project featuring Easter eggs.  I have a super special project for you today -- an Easter layout I recently made for my son's scrapbook:

I had so much fun adding lots of Easter details.  Here's some close-ups:

Project Details:
  • Papers - patterned paper by The Paper Studio; cardstock by Recollections
  • Cricut Cuts - "Hoppy Easter" from Celebrate with Flourish; eggs and basket from Doodlecharms, page 30; bunny from Create a Critter, page 26
  • Embossing - eggs with Cuttlebug's Perfectly Paisley and Swiss Dots and The Paper Studio's Doodleborders; basket with The Paper Studio's Mesh Texture
  • Other - all cuts on pop dots

I love this layout because it's the last time Jonathan agreed to sit with the Easter bunny -- even though it only lasted about three seconds until he burst into tears.  It was stressful at the time, but hilarious now!  He still has an intense fear of "EB" and avoided him like the plague at this year's egg hunt.

Are you ready to show off your egg projects?  Head over to Fantabulous Cricut for Challenge #105 - EGG-ceptional Easter!
