Easter Pickles?

Yep,  there she is all dressed up for Easter and slurping away on a pickle.  Nope, didn't want candy, no eggs, just pickles. 

Had to add a touch of pickle-green know it's all about the pickle... and the little girl. 

Had a bit of a "pickle" (hahahaha I crack myself up)  trying to layer some papers under the photos.  I tried using my white tissue paper, nah, just didn't look right.  A big old hunk of cardstock was just too block-y looking.  So as I was picking through some things to be packed and thinking about what else to use as layering papers...a piece of embossed dotty paper slipped out onto the floor.  Eureka!  I snatched it right up slid it under one of the photos.  Liked it so well I grabbed another plain piece of white cardstock to run that through the Sizzix, this time using a swirly embossing folder, then cut each embossed piece in half.  After bending and crimping up the edges a bit, I had just the right layering papers.  . 

Also added a couple of punched border pieces in yellow and a doily.  The little green banners are from Basic Grey ( I snagged a bunch of these in various colors, patterns and sizes, several months ago from Tuesday Morning).  They are kind of a pain to remove from the packaging ---as they are sewn onto a piece of cardstock--- it is do-able---the stitching is quite strong!  Anyway, after cutting up the banner, I placed it in three places to aid in developing a visual triangle. 

The doily print paper is from Basic Grey (Nook and Pantry) and the background paper is the B side of an Authentique paper.  Other embellishments include a couple of buttons, a couple of wood veneer butterflies, and another piece of one of those Basic Grey banners--this time in yellow.  The chipboard letters used in the title are also from Basic Grey. 

So really that's it. Not a lot going on in this one.  Not a ton of layering.  It was indeed all about the pickle... and the little girl.
