Happy Easter! Pink Saturday

This weekend we celebrate the most important event in human history! The resurrection of Jesus Christ. Tomorrow at daybreak we will celebrate Easter. Because Jesus died and rose again, we all can have hope of a future - not just here on earth, but for eternity in heaven. Praise God for his immeasurable grace!

Today I will share with you just a few "pinks" in honor of Easter. First is my little thrift store bunny that welcomes my guests in my entry way.

Next is a two-page spread in one of my altered books. It is still a work in progress, but I think it is turning out beautifully.

And here are close-ups of each separate page.

Right Page
These pages are in an oversized book - actually an old atlas - that I am loving working on. I first gessoed the pages, then applied a decorative napkin with matte medium. I then cut out the beautiful ladies from a calendar I had for last year. To pull the ladies into the overall spread, I added the big pink roses you see with an old rubber stamp set I have from Stampin' Up and then added more detail with a dark pink marker.  I have a few more elements I plan to add, but I thought I would show you the in-progress pages.

And lastly, I will share with you the rest of my Vintage Bunny and Chicks book from my swap at Altering Without Limits Yahoo Group.
