Platinum Scraps Easter Themed Layout

Rejoice, Jesus Is Alive!  This week over at Platinum Scraps we were challenged to render our take on a sketch by Rowena.  Initially,  I envisioned a child's layout complete with Bunny Rabbits and eggs and all the things that commercialize the Easter Holiday.  As I was on the phone late Friday night with CurlyLocDiva, I kept being pulled to do a layout about the Savior and what the Resurrection means to me.

With that in mind and many attempts with the Iphone to send pictures of my pattern paper to Curly and many failed attempts, she was able to assist me with the selection of the paper I wanted to use for my background.  I am a chicken when it comes to using Pattern Paper as a background.  Curly, girl you know you are a great teacher and I better not hear about this again.  LOL.  Truly thanks girl because without that key selection, I could not have completed this beautiful layout. 

I included a copy of the Resurrection Story as iilustrated with the Easter Eggs and tools.  You can purchase the eggs from any Christian Book story.  The eggs also work with the children's book, Benjamin's Box by Melody Carlson.
