Good morning! Easter has come and gone and I hope that you had a wonderful weekend with your family and friends. I created a layout celebrating an Easter weekend back in 2006. My father-in-law surprised all the grandchildren by bringing a 'real' Easter bunny to visit.

This layout was inspired by a sketch designed by Allison Davis.


This is my first layout using my new Silhouette. I had so much fun creating the embellishments. Look at this adorable rabbit!!! I embossed and then sanded the eggs and I added stitching to the nose and ears.


I used the new Chicken Dumpling Soup from Jillibean. Their stickers, papers and embellishments are amazing. I added a little bit of Doodlebug bakers twine and popped up some of my stickers for dimension.


The title is another cut using my Silhouette. I embossed the eggs and popped them up to add some interest. I will definitely use this file again.


I made sure to add my journaling using my favourite font (Baby Boston) and stamped the date using a set from Close to my Heart.


The third file I used from Silhouette are these little bunny paws. How cute are they?


I added ink to all my papers and die-cuts to soften them and blend everything together.

Thanks for visiting :)



  1. Happy Easter to you! This LO is fantastic!!! Wish I had half the talent you do :)
    TFS and hope you have a GREAT wednesday!

  2. I remember this! The photos just don't do it justice (they never do), it's sooooo adorable.

    Starting to get Silhouette-antsy over here...of course that might have something to do with the fact that I sold my Cricut before I cut out a bunch of letter "N"s I needed. Any idea when the Silhouettes will be in?

  3. This is so adorable, Carolyn!! I love the cute way you did the title inside the cracked eggs!! And you did an amazing job with all of the cute embellishments you cut on your Silhouette!!

  4. Another stunning layout Carolyn! I made the bunny too but your's has so much more detail - he is just sooo cute!! When you sew do on your layouts do you use the Sew easy tool by We r memory keeper?? Your stitching is always so perfect and need to learn how to do it!!
    Thanks for sharing!
