In my wanderings among all the beautiful blogs and looking at entries to lots of challenges (most I will probably never enter) I came across Collage Obsession It is a weekly challenge, starts on Sunday and usually gives you several photos as prompts. This week's was EGGS ! So the first thing I did was hit my clipart folders and look for eggs I already had photos of. Of course Easter popped right up front and center. Now, when my brothers and I were in the under 15 age bracket my mother made sure we got an Easter basket every Easter. She didn't get the ready made ones, no siree, she bought bags on candy and goodies and designed her own. Oh yes and my FATHER always got one too!!! Two holidays he loved were Easter and Halloween ~ just for the candy.  We didn't have a lot of candy around the house all the time. I had an aunt that kept fancy glass candy jars (filled) in every room except the bathroom. But not us and my father did have a sweet tooth. We (my mother and I) gave my father an Easter basket up until his death at 85.
Anyway (I tend to get sidetracked ) back to the collage challenge. In the spirit of kids and father's that loved the Easter bunny ~ here is my entry:
When I found the bunnies painting their Easter eggs I thought of the theme to my collage. I found the bunnies eggs at Vintage Holiday Crafts and the blue eggs at the Graphics Fairy The background is some fabric in my stash that I scanned and printed. I think this is the first piece I have ever done as simply a collage. It was fun (after a lot of agnst by me ) but what would crafting be without a lot of worry hunting stuff)

So here are the challenges I am entering with this collage:
Collage Obsession - Eggs
Crafty Boots Challenge - out of your comfort zone
Challenges 4 Everybody - anything goes
Divas By Design - any paper project /anything goes

Come join the fun !!

Lovely bright and cheerful collage. My Grand-ma used to put lots of different sweets on a plate, each section was divided by a flake - yummy. Oh, fond memories :-)
Thanks for joining us at Divas by Design.
