Punch It for Elphine House Australia

Easter is one of the biggest holidays for my family.  My girls and I always try and make it to my Mom's house and spend the holiday surrounded by good food and family.  This year the kids colored Easter eggs and what fun we had!  Lots of blue and pink hands but the big fun far out weighted the discoloration.  Allie has on a hat that I wore as a little girl.  I didn't even know Mom had kept it all these years!

And here's the babies in their Easter bests!  Alaina looks just so adorable in her blue and Allie is in the pink and getting into Aunt Gail's famous chocolate chip cheese dip!

Today starts a new challenge over at our Elphine House Australia Challenge Blog!  Our ever talented leader, Lynda, challenged us to "Punch It!", and boy, did I ever!  I used this fabulous Fairy Faye Flying High and just find her so adorable!

Isn't she just beautiful and enchanting?  She's colored with copics and has some Stickles on the dandelion, wings, dress, and the sweet petals in her hair.  The flowers in the right hand corner are handmade and I used a scalloped circle punch.

The butterfly punch is from Martha Stewarty as well as the branches and leaves.  The corner punch n the right bottom is a punch from EK Success.  the pearls are from Hero Arts and the papers are from a gorgeous My Mind's Eye pack called Happy Days.  The stick pins are from BasicGrey and the flowers from Recollections.

Aren't the papers so soft and comforting?  I just love them!

I hope you'll stop by our Elphine House Australia Challenge Blog and see the other fabulolus creations my designing sisters have come up with.  They're really wonderful and all so different!

I hope you enjoy her as much as I did creating her.  I think she's just a perfect little fairy and I'd love to be flying with her!

Looks like you had a super fun Easter. Wish we still had some little ones for Easter, all mine are teens or older, although we do still enjoy dying eggs. This year we even died the deviled eggs - yah for pinterest. lol

I really like you card. The image is enchanting and the coloring is very pretty. Love all the stickles too. That butterfly punch from MS is one of my all time fav punches - I think mine went to live with a neighbor girl - I need to ask her about it.
