Dyeing Eggs layout (for BBTB2)

Egg-ceptional Easter Eggs is the challenge theme for BBTB2 this week!  (Those yummy-licious chocolate eggs....definitely egg-ceptional)  We have a family tradition of spending an evening dyeing Easter eggs, which my kids love!  It's messy, but SOOO fun!  Last year I got 2 dozen ready for dyeing and they begged for more-we ended up dyeing almost 4 dozen eggs!!!!!!   So join us at the BBTB2 this week with an egg project.

So, on to my layout!  I always take lots of pictures of the dyeing process so I made a layout, using Stretch Your Imagination for the cute little bunnies with the paintbrushes working on some eggs.  I especially like the bunny on the tall stack of eggs, hard at work!   My beloved Doodlecharms cartridge gave me the basket and eggs (it is my favorite cricut basket on all my carts) and the title is from the Mickey Font-love the big fun chunky letters on that font!

The background papers are from from The Paper Studio and that Easter Egg paper inspired the whole layout.  Note:  For the Stretch Your Imagination cuts, I cut the main image/layers and then put the silhouette cut on top of it, and backed the whole thing with the shadow cut.
