Sketchabilities Challenge #135

I had some papers and a photo on my desk wanting my attention.  I saw the new sketch challenge come up at Sketchabilities and I decided I would just make them work.

This is the photo, taken a couple of years ago, at Easter.  Just a few days before Kirsten delivered Cooper.  She looks wonderful for being so far along in her pregnancy.  The kids were at an egg hunt where she used to work. 
 And here is the Sketchabilities sketch
 And here is what I came up with.
All old Basic Grey papers that work really well with the photo.
The light blue I misted with Mr Huey PinStripe adn Pony
The flourish was cut on my Silhouette and then distressed and misted.
A piece of translucent vellum I cut with a punch along the bottom
And the Title was cut on my Silhouette.  
There is a tag with hidden journaling behind the photo.

Of coarse, then I had  to put together another one for Harlee's book.
Still using Basic Grey papers.  And made a little more girlie. 
I used a different edge punch along the bottom.
The small bunnies are Impression Obsession die.
The banner is a poppy stamp die
The flourish is a Memory box die.
The title, the big bunny and PL Easter card were cut on my Silhouette
And Ali Edwards stamp
And the arrows were from a piece of paper hanging around on my desk.
Yesterday was another day of work and suppose to work again tomorrow.  But they were discharging babies like crazy.  So, I suppose I will just be on call tomorrow.  And then another girl asked me to cover Monday morning for her.  It is either feast or famine at that place.  Hit the grocery store up this morning.  And otherwise laying pretty low.  Don't want to get run down and catch one of those nasty bugs out there right now.
