Its the 17th of the month, Waltzingmouse Stamps monthly blog party and the theme this month is Spring. Living in Southern California, we don't have a true Winter season, but that doesn't stop me from thinking about all things Spring-related. Pastel colors, flowers, butterflies and Easter. Especially Easter. Some of my happiest memories are of my now grown children hunting for candy-filled plastic eggs all over our house on Easter morning.For my blog party entry, I made a painters tray. I made one for the Christmas holiday and today I am adding an Easter version.
The second row has a picture of my middle son, Andy, now 27. He had the cutest red cheeks in this photo and is also not crazy about the picture I chose of him.
The last row has a picture of my daughter Carly, now 20. Here's the funny story about this picture. There is a 7 year gap between my 2nd and 3rd children. When I was looking for pictures for this project, I found tons of pictures of Matt and Andy with cute little Easter baskets. I had lots to choose from, but when I started looking for Carly's picture, not a single one with an Easter basket, and I looked everywhere. Unfit mother. I know I got her Easter baskets, but I guess I took the pics but never printed them because if you notice, Carly is carrying a beautiful plastic sack to collect her eggs. You can bet she noticed that one immediately when she saw the picture.
Here some details about the stamp sets I used to make this Easter painters tray, all from Waltzingmouse Stamps.
