C'mon Get Hoppy!

I'm going to admit to you all that I had a really hard time getting "hoppy" with this layout. Although I love Easter, I'm not a huge fan of pastel colors. But I tried several different layouts and in the end, I found my "hoppy" place. And now I'm finally ready to introduce my contribution to April's Hostess Club Layouts. (Colette's is done as well so we'll get them posted together soon.)

Just a few notes: the cute little bunny on the bottom is pretty much CASED from Tara Kenyon. Also, the flowers were made using homemade glitter mists and they are FABULOUS! Hostess Club members, you're going to love them!

It's still a bit hard to see in this picture but these flowers are quite shimmery. To give these plain white Just Blooms the color and sparkle, I mixed 1/2 rubbing alcohol to 1/2 pearl paint and then added reinker (amount is based on the color saturation you are going for). I shook it up and sprayed it out of a little 2 oz mister bottle. I couldn't believe how evenly the color went on and how shimmery they got!

Thanks for checking out my art today. Have a fabulous rest-of-the-day!
