OCC challenge - Easter

It's time for another challenge at Our Creative Corner! This week, we were asked to use our favorite Easter set. I don't have many Easter stamps, so I chose to use an Easter die set. This is absolutely my favorite!
I also decided to make a small album to put all of our 2009 Easter pictures in. I used lots of bright papers with glitter in it. I cut out chipboard with tabs (2) and covered them with the paper. Cut out the pink plaid paper with my Nestabilities. Die cut the bunny in white and inked the edges with charcoal ink. Cut out the feet pads, ears and nose with pink polka dotted paper. Assembled the bunny and added her to the to the cover. I die cut eggs and added them. Punched grass and added it along the bottom. Punched a butterfly and added that. I then cut out the 'Easter' and '2009' on my Silhouette. Added them to the cover and colored with Stickles. Added Stickles to the butterfly and yellow parts of eggs. I stamped [memories] and cut out with label Nestabilities. Added it to the back cover tab. Cut 4 yellow pages and 4 green pages and alternated them for the inside pages. Punched and bound with Bind It All.
