Happy Easter, a couple of cards and a whole bunch of pictures

Today is a special day for our family and for many others as well, a day that has great significance to us because of our faith in the risen Jesus Christ. We are grateful today for the resurrection because it means that those we love who have passed on will live again also. My only remaining grandma called me yesterday and we had a wonderful time catching up and sharing memories and it made me think about my grandparents and others who have since passed away. Special thoughts and prayers go out to my friend, Maren, whose father passed away this week from brain cancer. I know that this particular Easter will always have great significance for her family.

He Lives

I will be so happy to get to see them again someday. What a beautiful reunion that will be.

For those who do not celebrate the religious nature of Easter, may you also have a very happy and peaceful day with your family and other loved ones. It has been a nice day for us so far, listening to church services and eating way too many treats brought by the Easter bunny. Even as I type I am eating some little Starburst jelly beans ☺

While I wait for my camera and computer to upload some Easter pics I will post some new cards for you that I created using my April kit from My Scrapbook Nook featuring My Mind's Eye's "Little Boy Blue" line from this past CHA.

The kit also includes some cute felt stars from Making Memories
 and alpha stickers from October Afternoon. 

Green canvas flower from Jillibean Soup, sentiment from SRM Stickers.

Yesterday we had a little Easter egg hunt in our backyard and then dyed eggs- silly Aimee didn't want to wait for the eggs to do their thing so she kept taking her egg out of the cup and ended up with green dye halfway up her arm. 

Matt videoing me taking pictures- at least I'll be in a picture that way, right? 

 The girls with their spoils. What a beautiful day it was.
