Happy Easter Sunday! He has Risen!!!

Happy Easter everyone! Our Sunday started a bit behind. We ended up running into church a bit late, but thank goodness there were still seats. BARELY! It has been a busy week and weekend for our house. I haven't created a lot this week. I had promised the girls that I would not do anything for the rest of the week, and hang out with them the remainder of their spring break. Thursday I took the girls downtown to the aqurium and some lunch. Then Friday we went egg coloring. Saturday was Easter picnic, stamp camp for me, and then Eva Grace's First Birthday. My batteries died when I got to the Easter picnic. Plus, I am a goober thinking that the batteries that were in the camera bag were new ones. NO. They are the died ones. But luckily I headed home before Eva's party. I haven't taken pictures of my items from stamp camp. Before we headed to the picnic I had to whip out Eva's present. SO my stamping table is a mess. I need to put things away before I take pictures from stamp camp. BUT..Gail, Michelle, and Kim are truly gifted! I loved everything they taught us! They ROCK! Gail had a card and a notebook holder with pen. Gail is too much fun!!! The color schemes and everything was perfect! Michelle had two cards. One right out of the SU mini..too cute..and the second one is faux metal! It is awesome. She used it on a watering can. It was perfect. Kim had us altering a clipboard. OH it is too cute! I can't wait to use it for something! I was grouped with my normal bunch. Pat, Claudia, Cindy, and me. I invited my friend Felicia along. OH and she was having a blast! I am so happy that I am going to move to Felicia's neighborhood. I am sorta hoping she is gone by then, not because I don't love her..but because she needs to get her orders and be on the move already. Anyway...I promise to post tomorrow after I get the girls off to school and my days back to normal. after stamp camp was Eva Grace's first birthday. Eva is a cutie! Traysea loves her! Her party is all the two babies talked about. Because there was going to be a pinata! Plus they think she is adorable! I was able to replace batteries and make it there, a bit tardy, but I had let Shelly know.

The girls coloring eggs!

This is Eva Grace Jancito. She is one today!
So Eva's Mom Shelly loves dragonflys. So I was on Beth's blog the other day and saw the nameframe she whipped out. I totally knew I wanted to make one for Eva. LUCKILY her name is short because all I could find was an 8x8 frame. But it came out pretty cute. I stamped dragonflies from the tags and more SU! set in SU white craft ink. I came back and embossed it with Hero Arts Sparkle embossing powder. Eva's name is stamped in Lovely Lilac Craft Ink and embossed also. I layered it on Sage Shadow cardstock followed by Lovely Lilac cardstock. I layered that on top of some Dots and Dashes ribbon I picked up at Michael's forever ago. Then layered all of that on top of Enchate paper. I nicked the top of the frame and was forced to cover it. So I went with some of the sticker strips from the Simply Scrappin Kit, Just Delightful. i love these Scrappin Kits. They are so awesome! In the bottom right hand corner I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Harmony SAB set. "Dreams come a size too big so we can grown into them." Here it is! Thanks Beth for the inspiration!

After church we geared up for Easter Baskets and Egg hunting. My kids love the egg hunt. I know you are saying..which kid doesn't? But my kids really love it. They love to hide eggs for each other all year long. I think children in general like the hide and seek idea. Anyway last night Ryan packed 96 eggs. So we headed outside and went a hiding. The girls broke free once we gave them the go ahead!

Look at our eggs!

Well I am off to supervise Easter dinner and Egg Salad sandwiches...yum! Plus the girls are dying to watch their movies. Every year they get a movie in their baskets. Happy Feet, Charlotte Web's, and Eragon. Hopefully that holds them till dinner time! So enjoy your Easter celebration!
