Counterfeit Kit Challenge April member blog hop

Gosh, I've been a busy blogger this week! This will be my fourth post which would be great if I could keep it up. Let's see.

Hopefully, you're here for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge April member blog hop and I'm at the end of the list, so you should have reached me via K's blog and I'm sure she wowed you with her creations. If you'd like to start at the beginning, head back to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog and the full list is at the end of this post if you get lost along the way.

This month, we were offered the following challenges over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge:
Challenge #1: Pick A Challenge ... any challenge. Scrapbook, craft or in fact any challenge

Challenge #2: Sketch Challenge  using a sketch by Paper Players
Challenge #3:  Spring Challenge - Let spring inspire your next project
Each of these appealed to me in their own way but in the end went with the Spring Challenge. When I think of spring, days full of sunshine, Easter, yellows, bright colours and general fun springs to mind. What about you?

Diving into my kit box holding my April Vivid kit, I found the gorgeous sunburst paper and that was it - I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Some cutting, stitching, distressing and layering featuring a rather unusual Easter Egg and I was done. This came together so well.

I actually enjoyed using up the brads I included in my kit and will no doubt throw in a few more. I have thousands!

Not a lot to say about this page because I think the details show you what you need to know! It was fun to make and about a silly topic which made me smile all the time I was making it.

So, I'll send you on your way. Don't forget to leave me a comment and let me know you were here.

Here's the full list in case you get lost along the way.

Here's the Blog Hop order ...
