Easter Baskets 2012

For this challenge we were to use page pattern 37 and brick grid paper.  In looking through my photos, these pictures of the grandkids from last Easter looked like they would work. I love the facial expressions in some of these pictures!

I duplicated the page pattern, using a mirror image on the right side, so that I could use the center squares for my title. 

I used a couple of different free downloads available on Snap 'n Crop:  FreeDL4 (the flowers) and FLDListBlocks (the yellow and green squares). Interestingly, my printer was acting up and making streaks, so my squares ended up striped, which was okay!  I found a coordinating patterned paper in my Anna Griffin stash that had a basketweave - perfect!! I used a 2012 cornerstone, and then finished up with some blingy strips.

I love the expressions in your photos- those are the best! I especially love the way the kiddo is looking at the "fluffy stuff." Too Sweet!!!

It works together well. I like the way you carried your title across the two pages as well as the flow in your storytelling. Your granddaughter's facial expressions speak volumes. What a fun time.

Your photos are so good! And I too LOVE the expressions! Nice use of the letter tiles in the one inch squares for the title. I agree with really brings the pages together. Really nice job!

Thank you for sharing a great layout. I like the pattern #37 and you did a great job bringing in the Easter colors on a something as Tami said thinking "outside the basket." (I was going to say, "outside the grid" but I like basket better!) Love the grandchildren's expression, too. Great job.

Capturing "the Look" is always the goal, right? Job Done!! A colorful layout and great photos. Having your title straddle both pages is a nice way to draw them together.

Amazing how changing the background colors make it look so different. Cute pics - love Easter and candy :)

Ditto the expression comment from Candy. I love the "fluffy stuff" face! You used unexpected colors for Easter - nice to see thinking "outside the basket." :)
