Inspired Blueprints Meets Lasting Memories....Easter

So, my kiddo has been recovering from a cold that knocked him on his rear this week and I took advantage of the situation to do nothing but goof off!  The house is a disaster and he's not done much other than watch t.v., but, I did get two layouts done! ;O)  

The first one is a combined challenge.  Lasting Memories has a photo inspiration challenge this week.  I'm so excited to finally be able to participate in one of their challenges and submit my layout on time!  The colors of their photo were perfect for this paper by Best Creations Inc. and tulips always mean Easter/spring to me, so, this was an easy one!

I hadn't played with an Inspired Blueprints sketch in a while, but, came across this one from way back in February and knew it would be perfect.
I try really hard not to get caught up in the trends of the here and now because they seem to date your layouts faster.  I was really good with the whole pennant craze until Close to My Heart came out with this stamp set...how cute are my little alphabet flags! ;O)  Sorry about this photo, I can't seem to get a good one of this layout for some reason!
Paper: Best Creation Inc Bunny Love line
Cardstock:  Sunkiss Yellow, Citrus Leaf, Sky, and White Daisy
Ink: Sky
Stamps: Pennant Alpha and Eastertime (texture on basket)
Other: Recollections Pearls, Stickles, Martha Stewart border and butterfly punch, Cricut Stretch Your Imagination (basket) and Plantin Schoolbook (grass) cartridges, and Zig Pen
