Welcome to the "It's Easter" Blog Hop!

Hi everyone! Welcome to the “It’s Easter” Blog Hop to help you get ready for this wonderful Easter season. Joining me in this fun celebration are some of the most talented crafters that I know. I do have a few rules for this hop, in support of each crafter and the time they have put into their work, to be eligible for my blog candy you MUST visit each blog and leave a comment. If you have just came from Suzanne, you are in the right place.  If not, and just hopped on this blog, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us.

 First off, I would like to thank Shawnee for putting together this fun hop! I have enjoyed so much learning to make new projects and just letting my creativity work it's magic. Here is my first project for the first day of the hop. I have a created a Mini Easter Scrapbook Album where you can add a small picture or a fun memory of your family or childhood.

Cardstock: 3 sheets @ 3.5 x 8.5
Variety of Color Card stock: Light Green, White, Pink, Light Blue, Purple @ 3.5 x 3 1/4
 Green Dot Paper
Queen & Co.: Pink Pearls
Simply Charmed: Bunny @ 2 or 2.5 
Recollection Embellishment Stickers: Easter and Spring Butterfly Tops

First Step: Hole Punch top and bottom of each card stock to attach with twine later to create the album.
 Second Step: Add a different color of card stock on each page.
 Third Step: Add embellishment on the corner of each page to leave room for picture or to journal.

 Final Step: Place Bunny for the cover and add a Sentiment Stamp to go with theme.

This hop runs from April 7th - 10th, so you have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop. Check out each blog and see what each blog has to offer for BLOG CANDY! Come back all 3 days to see some new projects, tutorials, and more. Plus, if you leave a comment on everyone's blog, you will be entered for the grand prize blog candy given at Shawnee's Blog.
