Glittery Chicks and Yellow Daffodils.......

First I fell in love with the glittery chicks in this cool Making Memories paper, then I had my on-going no decent photo's crisis and I pulled out these ready printed ones from what feels like yesterday/forever ago!!



I can still remember Georgia eating this first egg like it was yesterday. A sweet neighbour gave it to her and it was a Thorntons white chocolate chick. I'm thinking of getting Ben one just to keep the tradition going!!


My dilema was that I really wanted to use both colours even though I'm not that keen on yellow, I think I have got away with it just..................not having any yellow in my stash I found a local supplier (florist). There I got the daffodils and a load of prima type leaves I also got the little lillies too. I think thats enough yellow for a life times supply don't you?

I painted the Basic Grey letters with Distress paints, it nearly killed them but I like that they look even more distressed than they were before although they are eggstremely fragile. lol!!


Tomorrow is technique class with Sue at Running with Scissors, yet again I am so excited at the thought of making and learning with my buddies!!
Love and chocolate chicks

Oh wow, gorgeous page. Do you actually put these pages into the plastic slip thingies? Do the 'bellies stay ok in them?

I love the photo sequence - it looks yummy!
