Easter Egg Hunt 2011 ~ Colten ~ SOUS Challenge

Hello everyone, I hope you're doing well...  I will be away for a little while and not for sure when I will be back..  My dad is very ill and they have called the family in.. We are very sad but we have been preparing ourselves for this...  Those of you who follow my work know that about a year ago my dad was diagnosed with alzheimers and has been in the nursing home since then..  This last Monday he had a stroke and they also found that he has pneumonia... So we are going back to be with my Mom and my family for a little while..
  I have a few projects scheduled to post in the next week or so.. After that we will just have to play it by ear..
Today's sketch challenge is over at Stuck On U Sketches..  And this weeks sketch is by PageMaps...
Doesn't it look Springy with all of those little butterflies...  Remember, you don't have to follow it exactly if you don't want to..  just get your inspiration from it!!!
I went to Colten's Easter Party at daycare last week and took these cute photos of him hunting easter eggs...  and I thought they would work perfect with this sketch.. 

Here are a few close ups...

Here is a close up of the chipboard butterfly...  If you look close you can see that I used a lot of stickles on it!


Here's that sly little bunny watching Colten hunt his easter eggs...  And a few eggs that I cut out with a few feathers and some grass added..

Here is the list of scrappy things I used on this layout....

Hugs to you Fern and my prayers and well wishes to your family! Some people think when something like this is expected and you have time to prepare it's easier. Im not so sure I agree. I think something like this hanging over you is very stressful. I hope at least your father is being kept comfortable. I can only imagine what your mother is going thru. Stay strong and take care my friend!

BTW....this LO is just too stinkin cute!!! :)
