Egg Hunt at Sunnycroft - April Challenges!

Hi there this is the first of my Aprill Challenge pages I've been working on this week.  We went to a National Trust Edwardian House just a mile from my flat which I fell in love with as soon as I saw it!  My personal challenge for this year is to get my health and mobility back so I can join as a volunteer, showing people around this beautiful House. It's going to be the subject of a few LO's I thin!!.  Sorry I'm rambling here.
This is my entry for Scrap for Help to use book pages on your page and I also took some inspiration from Lets Get Shabby Easter theme but they only allow you to upload to their site only and I do believe in giving credit to ALL my inspiration sources, hence I haven't linked my LO to their site.

The gorgeous colours of the eggs in the photo were the basis for my background paper which looks very springlike.  I had some test paper which I'd used to try out masking flowers with texture paste, I cut them away from the background and splattered some colour onto them...........the centres are text from a book punched into circles, so are the tiny butterflies flying across the page.  The little doilies are a free gift from Crafts beautiful along with the backing underneath.  The cute chicks on top were a gift from Val at Bastelmania.  Thank you so much Val for all my goodies.

I also took inspiration from the LESSology challenge who want you to make a cover this month.  Daisy made me a gorgeous card which I wanted to keep so I made it into a mini book to record our day out and built my layout around it.

Hope you like it and thank you so much for visiting and for any comments.  Love them all!
Hope you're having a Happy Weekend. x
