Cross Canada Blog Hop - Easter Creations

Hello and welcome to the Cross Canada Blog Hop. This week we will be featuring Easter Creations.

If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop or if you get lost along the way you can start at the beginning with Michelle's Blog as she has the complete list. If you came here from SCRAPBOOKING WITH CHERYL you are in the right place. Now on to my project:

Okay so I know it was early in the month but I couldn't help myself and did a little Easter Photo Shoot with my little girls. It is my youngster's first Easter. Then I paired the pictures with the Penelope Paper pack and created this fun and interactive layout.

The eggs were embossed using our embossing folders and inking the inside before running it through the Big Shot. And for the interactive aspect as you can tell I made TWO sliding window elements and one flap. This is how I made the sliding windows by using cardstock and 3D tape: 

I made sure to add stoppers so that it didn't slide all the way out. I also made a slit in my page protectors so that I can open and shut the windows with ease. Reminder: Make sure to add holes at the end of the slits so that they don't tear.

For the flap I created it using our White & Gold ribbon and gluing it in between the pieces of cardstock on the flap and under the piece on the layout. Then I cut a slit in the Memory Protector again for the flap to go through. Then I took a 4x6 Flip Flap and cut off the adhesive part and just slid my flap in there and it was simple and all my pages and photos are well protected and easy to access!

I know this is a lot lol but if you have any questions just ask and I'll reply ASAP! Thanks!
