Lets Get Shabby Challenge #44 and "A Holiday"

Hello. Challenge #44 is up at Lets Get Shabby and it's an Easter List........well, 3 lists really. A list for 'subject', a list for 'embellishment', and a list for 'technique'. You need to work with one or more things from each list. Check out all the details HERE, we would love you to play along.

I have made an Easter Tin from one of those cute little pot plant holders from Ikea. I have covered it with paper, decorated it, made 3 tags and decoupaged some foam eggs with napkins and 7gypsies Tissue Paper. Of course you could fill it with real chocolate eggs or any other Easter treats.

While we are on the subject of "holidays," here is one you may like to go on. My friend Lucy Muraca organizes "scrapbooking holidays"...............does it get any better..........scrapbooking AND a holiday !!
Anyway, this time the very experienced and talented, Angella Peardon is going along as teacher, and they are going to Vietnam........AMAZING!! I would love to be going.
If you are interested, here are all the details.
Wishing you all a safe, peaceful and happy Easter.

  4. Well my sweet and creative friend. I just LOVE what you have done here. I much say you are the Queen of Layering. Your project here is gorgeous. I do hope you are enjoying your week.


  5. Beautiful work Gayle. I would never dream of creating something like this. It looks like it could have been made a loooong time ago (and I mean that as in it is "timeless" and "antique"). I am sure it will become a gorgeous keepsake.
    Oh how I wish I could go on a Scrappy Holiday too....I will just have to stick with the occasional retreats.
    And thank you again for your gorgeous words :)

  6. Finally I made it here before the end of the day. Just gorgeous Gayle, I love the Ikea metal pots I have these to keep my craft supplies in as the are so pretty and you've used it beautifully here, the decorative eggs are gorgeous and I just love that vintage Easter Rabbit tag. Thanks for sharing and I will try and check out your challenge site.

  7. You have such a talent for "pulling it all together!"
    And you make it sound so simple: just get this and cover that and decoupage those and embellish this :)
    Beautifully executed and I love the vintage Easter card with jeweled bits in the front

    I hope your holiday weekend is peaceful and calm! Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment .... Hope and fairness will unroll upon us all .... Cheers! Kimmie
