easter 2010

I had to LOL at this LO. Liam is wearing the same shirt, in the same place in the kitchen, using the same dye kit he chose last year! You cannot tell this year's photos from last, except for his glasses!

Circle is cut at 10" and shadow function from Plantin Schoolbook. The Happy Easter title (cut at 2") and egg (cut at 3") are from the Easter seasonal cartridge. The "candy" dots are from Martha Stewart. The printed papers are unknown and were purchased from a local scrapbooking store several years ago--finally using the 'stash.'

I've meant to post these for a while. Here are several cards I've made this year. All the stamps are from Stamin Up.

The walk to Riverwalk

As we walked from the Alamo to Riverwalk, we passed through this stunning area. It was the closest thing I have ever seen to paradise! The waterfalls gushed, the stream gurgled, the cobblestone path and dappled sunlight were serene, and it was almost completely ours alone.

The paper is from My Minds Eye, though the stack doesn't seem to have a name. The font cut is from Lyrical Letters, and there are two different swishes/swirls. One from Home Accents and the other from Home Decor.

The Alamo

I wish these photos did better service to the papers used here. The background paper is from DCWV's Rustic Stack. It is a very old looking map that works perfectly with the age of the Alamo. The two Cricut cuts are from Destinations, and again, I wish the blue, cloudy paper showed better.

The photos are from our trip, last November, to Texas. Liam and I had never been to San Antonio, and I have to admit that I didn't expect the Alamo to be right in the middle of down town. All the photos I'd seen of it always made me think it was outside the city on a sizable piece of land. Nope, it is smack dab in downtown, with sky scrapers and traffic and all. Still, it is a pretty amazing place to visit, to know that famous men of our country's history stood and died there. I hope to do another layout, using the night photos, later this week. Those photos capture the haunting aspect that most got to me while we were there.
