Not So Egg-citing Anymore!

Happy Easter everyone!! Hope your day is full of family and friends and that you have some wonderful memories when the day is done!

This layout was created with the newest sketch at Creative Scrappers. I had a tough time with the sketch until I decided to use the patterned paper. And THEN I wished that I had cut it so the stripes were horizontal but it was too late when I made that decision!! The title says it kids were less than thrilled that I had them home on a Saturday night so that we could color Easter Eggs! LOL! Too bad! Its a tradition that my mom LOVED and passed on to me and I will do it forever in her memory. I miss you mommy.

Patterned paper by Best Creations, eggs I cut out myself, Thickers, Recollections and Glitz letter stickers, miscellaneous ribbons from my stash and a little ink around the edges and this layout was complete.  With the Easter theme, it qualifies for Challenge #34 - Easter Theme at Lasting Memories Layout Challenges.

No big family gathering here. Just me and the kids and John. He left to go fishing (we are experiencing a pretty good rough spot in our relationship which has me down) and the ham is in the oven. Looking forward to just relaxing today. Hope you all have a great day!

"... I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die." John 11:25-26

I have a teenager, too! He didn't dye eggs with me at all. He will usually do it if we have small kids with us, but we didn't this year. My sister and I dyed some with a little help from her teenagers!! :-) I didn't really get any photos to scrap though!
I love your bright colored layout! Thanks also for stopping by my blog with a sweet comment!

They'll appreciate the tradition one day too. Sorry to hear about your rough spot .. hopefully you were able to enjoy a nice family dinner. Love your LO and that you're keeping a family tradition alive. Thanks for joining us at Lasting Memories!


Keep your faith! Things will get better, and I am sure that one day your daugther will remember you colouring the Easter Eggs, and will keep alive this tradition like your mother taught you. Your page is wonderful ! Congratulations!!
