It was kind of nice to be able to work on some Easter layouts in the springtime instead of at Christmas or Halloween, even if it's Easter 2002. The bright, cheerfull colours made the cloudy, grey day feel a little less gloomy. Sorry about the poor picture quality. I was having trouble with lighting and didn't want to use the flash as it tends to wash everything out.
I found the tutorial for this Dalia flower here. Helen Croft has many fabulous flower tutorials on her website. I didn't know there were that many types of flowers out there. The satin outfit Felicity is wearing in the top left corner of the layout is one that Doris picked up and my Mom trimmed with lace and embroidered a heart on the front of it. It looks very old fashioned and could be something my great grandmother would have worn.
I tried to make this layout a little more masculine by incorporating more blues and greens, although the pink still managed to sneak in there. I drew in the stitching lines and outlined the flowers with a white gel pen, and the journaling and "Happy Easter" were done on the computer in Photoshop Elements.Easter Baby:
