Broken Bubbles

We had a busy, busy weekend with all of our Easter festivities over the past two days!!  I am glad to be able to sit down and breath, without having to run from here to there!  :)  But we definitely had a great time...we invited friends over Saturday, so all the kids could dye Easter Eggs together, we had an amazing worship service and message at church yesterday morning, and then we spent the rest of the day with family yesterday afternoon.  One good thing about all of these activities, for scrapbookers, is all of the amazing photos that we get to take and look forward to using on upcoming layouts!!  :)

I snapped a couple of hilarious pictures of our little man on Saturday, during the Easter Egg dyeing.  He really doesn't grasp the whole egg dye concept yet, but he decided to have his own fun.  When I came out on the back patio, I found him trying to blow bubbles with the Egg Dipper and Easter Egg Dye!!  I was cracking up!  We went to blow bubbles a couple of weeks ago, so I guess he thought that he would give it a try with the dye and Egg Dipper!!  :)





I managed to work 3 challenges into this layout.  I used the new sketch that was posted today at Let's Get Sketchy for Challenge #6.  And I loved our March/April Issue Challenge #6 this week at Club CK.  We were challenged to use the above color combo and I think it worked so well with these photos.  The last challenge, was also a new one posted today on the MME Blog.  The April challenge is to use hexagons.  I love that their new Miss Caroline collections use so many hexagon shapes and I used one of the patterned papers to fussy cut several hexagons for the border across my page.  I also cut 5 smaller hexagons on my Expression to use at the top of the layout.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll have some fun things coming up over the next two weekends!!  On Friday, I'll be sharing my new layout for the April 13 Fabulous Friday challenge at Frosted Designs and on Saturday there will be some fun happenin's with a giveaway.  And, mark the weekend of April 21 on your calendar...you'll want to check back in for more fun and another giveaway!!
