A sweet surprise?

So, late last night we were hip hopping and the subject of publication and application to design teams came up. A lot of wisdom and insight was shared. I've been hanging onto this layout to see if it would get picked up before I posted it here. So, here it is:

{DP & Flocked Flower, My Minds Eye, Magnolia line; CS, Bazzill; Stamps, Unity - Happy Easter, KOTM August 2008, KOTM September 2009; Ribbon, MM, American Crafts; Ink, SU, Ranger Ink; Die Cut Letters, QuicKutz; Eyelets, MM; Die Cut Frame and Mat, Spellbinders Nestabilities; Dry embossing, Cuttlebug}

And close ups of the journalling and coloring. I used Prismacolors with the Gamsol method to shade the Unity bunny.
Most of you know the latest saga in this bunny's life. If not - look about two posts below this one. I am going to start and Easter Pet program, I think. People pick up cute pets around Easter and give them to people who are not prepared to take care of them. Those creatures are often dumped, unable to fend for themselves. As I mentioned, we had hip hop yesterday, and today is the hangover! We'll still be on Splitcoaststampers chatting this morning. Come join us! Here are two projects I made for yesterday's hip hop challenges:My cup of tea was inspired by my favorite aunt. When I was just a kid, I would spend a week or two with her in west Texas. She always made a fuss of everything, treating me like a little princess! We would use her best placemats and her best China, just for an ordinary cup of tea. No wonder she was my favorite! This challenge was Unity with All the Trimmings!

This was the second Hip Hop challenge: to wish our Unity team safe travels as they Drive Into the Sunset. Well, mine ended up more rainbow, but I still like it. Easter is my favorite holiday, by the way. I just can't get over how tender the Lord's heart is toward us that he would lose His own Son to save you and me.

Ta for now, ~ky (and Scrap!)


  1. Awww!!! I love the sweet bunny LO. I've heard of the Gamsol method, but I haven't checked it out yet, so I don't know how it works. I'm definitely going to need to find out. Hug all the bunnies you can for me. If you come across an angora...let me know?

  2. Cute Layouts & Bunny also.

  3. Ohhhh that layout is sooo gorgeous!!! I'm learning from all the scrapping I'm seeing!! And wonderful cards....I love the rainbow look!!
