A Hunting We Will Go" Layout ~ The ScrapRoom

Today I am up on 
sharing a layout I created using the lovely
Echo Park " Spring" Page Kit,
included in the
February Flavors of the Month Kit!
I love the pattern papers in this collection and when I saw the kit,
 I knew I had to use it to scrap these photos of my grandchildren
taken last spring while while waiting for an Easter egg hunt to start:
I used a butterfly punch to punch out butterflies from the "Beaming Butterflies"
patterned paper and to finish off my page added the several pieces of
the ephemera included in the kit.
 I have a few more photos taken that day
and looking forward to using the rest of this kit to scrap them.

Stop by The ScrapRoom and check out the awesome
February Kits...you will love the variety of yumminess Rochelle
has included in each kit!

How would you like to Guest Design at The ScrapRoom?

"Be Our Guest" Sketch Challenge.
