PPPR and MCS Spring Blog Hop

Hi everyone!

Thank You for joining us for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and My Craft Spot Blog Hop.
I hope your enjoying your Saturday and all the beautiful Spring projects that both PPPR and MCS design team have made featuring different Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files & My Craft Spot Stamps.

If you came here from Gwen's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit Lisa's blog.


For my project I made a project life pocket page scrapbook layout. I used PPPR "Hoppy Easter Cutting Files" for the "Hoppy Easter", eggs and bunny. For the grass I used PPPR "Flower Assortment Cutting Files". The super cute sentiment is from MCS "Happy Easter" stamp set and I stamped it on the second image from PPPR "Layered Labels 2 Cutting Files".
 I used Heid Swapp Color Shine to splatter some color on some of the page. The colors I used are Black Velvet, Primrose, Mustard and Teal. First time using and I really like the way it came out. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink around the eggs and around most of the paper. For the grass I used chalk.
 The Welcome Easter Bunny card and the pink egg shape card is from Becky Higgns Mini Holiday Project Life kit. The yellow polka dot card is from Becky Higgns Blush core kit. The arrow is from PPPR "Best Buddies Cutting Files". The love you sentiment is from  MCS "Happy Easter" stamp set. I only used part of the sentiment. The whole sentiment said "Some bunny loves you. I used Peachy Keen Animal Faces stamp for the bunny's faces.
