Just a quick note to wish everyone a Happy Easter. May you all keep safe especially if you are travelling. Look out for some great photo oppotunities with all the eggs, egg hunts & easter bonnets.There are lots of things you can do with an oval shape to create the look of a decorated egg. Strips of paper & ribbon,flowers, butterflies & glitter.

Here are 3 layouts with the same photos in each..no it's not a "Nana moment"! You can make your layouts as basic or as embellished as you like. Here I used the same papers but different embellishments & slightly different designs. Using sketches can give you a basic design then it is up to your interpretation how the layout turns out.

 For Easter layouts, I like to use bright colours that reflect fun and laughter & good times. Apart from eggs & rabbits, butterflies make nice embellishments and have the deeper meaning of new life.
