Easter is Right Around the Corner.....

I can't believe that this Sunday is Palm Sunday already. We celebrate this Sunday with my Dad and Step-mom for our "Easter" get together. My sister, step sister and their kids all get together for a brunch and Easter egg hunt. I always look forward to seeing the kids because they are all growing so fast!

I created this Easter card using the newest product by Crafty Secrets called Creative Scraps. I love these images because it makes creating a card super easy. I used a Cuttlebugged background, and a little butterfly pick I found at Michaels. I layered a doily behind the image. Add a ribbon and button, and voila!

So the living room is officially painted. I worked on painting the wood work all day today, washing curtains, dusting all the plaster dust off of everything. Tomorrow we are shopping for new doors. Sounds pretty darn exciting huh? : ) Hope your weekend is great!
