I’ve been so distracted lately that I haven’t even thought about or planned anything for Easter. Now that it’s just a few days away, I figured I better try and get myself in the mood for something since I know my daughter will want to decorate eggs and even though my kids are older, they still like to do egg hunts. I pulled out my April 2014 Martha Stewart Living magazine and that did the trick. Looking at all of those pretty pictures and creative ideas got my wheels turning, and while our celebration won’t be very fancy, it’s still great to find inspiration!
I always like to visit the website when I read the magazine and find some of the articles to add to my pinterest boards. Some content is only in the magazine, but some of it can also be found online. Here are some of my favorites:
Mini daffodils and clump moss make a sweet alternative to a candy-filled basket.
Use stickers or punches to decorate eggs
There’s even an app from Martha Stewart Living that lets you browse through 101 different eggs with step-by-step photos and video instruction. The app is only .99 cents in the Apple App Store. You can watch a video demonstration here.

Now I just need to force myself to go to the grocery store before the weekend hits!
You can purchase the templates by following this link. Only $5 for the entire pack. On sale for $3.50 through April 22, 2014
Here’s a layout to illustrate how much fun you can have with this template set. This is me as a baby!
I had such a great time at Digi Night Out on Saturday night! It was really fun to sit with so many digital scrapbookers and chat about programs, tips, and memories throughout the night.
Don’t you just love seeing all these laptops together? I remember going to paper crops where there would have been 2 people (max) sitting at a long table like this. I also remember spending hours (or even days) sorting through my supplies and trying to figure out what to pack to work on a a crop. This time, I literally just grabbed my laptop, mouse, cord, and a small portable external hard drive and I had ALL of my photos and ALL of my supplies with me!
Amber LaBau did such a great job of organizing the event. She really thought of everything!
Everyone who attended got a free template pack from me (it will be in my shop in a few days) plus a coupon for another free template set of their choice. We all scrapped along with a challenge to use one of the templates with some alterations and certain ingredients. I ended up putting together this layout with a picture of my kids back in 1996.
The whole event just reminded me how lucky I am to have digital scrapbooking in my life and how wonderful it is to be part of a community of memory keepers who love technology, pretty designs, and treasured photos just as much as I do! Digi scrappers are my kind of people!
