Uncommon Easter!

My youngest daughter is not a lover of pastels, as her mother definitely is…  I have to get my mind in a whole different place when thinking of “Megann” and “Easter”. Therefore, we have the bird house; a symbol of Easter and Spring.  And we have a darker color scheme with a less flowery paper which definitely says “Megann”.

The theme of this paper is travel with its background map and compass points.  This, too,  addresses the lifestyle of Megann and her husband, Dave.  Dave works for Delta and the two of them can take off for parts unknown for weekends and holidays whenever they like. And they like to go!!!  Who wouldn’t?!

I saw this project on several YouTube videos and loved it!  As you can see, part of the roof lifts off and it is a mini album.  The album portion is held on by thin little magnets.  I will have others to show in future blogs

I am making one for each of my daughters, my granddaughter-in-law and my oldest granddaughter.  My hope is that we will have photos of our celebration at my daughter’s home on the lake and each one can put those photos in the little album as a family holiday remembrance.

My youngest granddaughter is still young enough that she would prefer some of the more traditional Easter goodies for children.  I tend to go down the toy path rather than the candy path.  The rest of the family more than makes up for anything I lack in that area!  But her mommy will have the album and she will be able to look at pictures to her heart’s content, as well.

The boys?  They get to share.  I can’t think of anything I could make for them that they would care about… except food.  So, I’ll have to get busy on that, too!

Happy, happy Easter!!  Let me hear from you…  you know I love it!  Blessings & Hugs…
