{PIN}spirational Challenge time!

It's time for a new {PIN}spirational Challenge!!  This weeks picture is one that makes me smile because it reminds of Spring, Easter, coloring eggs as a child, playing with Easter toys, wearing the new Easter dress and bonnet to church....all those great childhood memories!  The funny thing is that nothing much has changed....  I still will be at church on Easter (although not in an Easter bonnet).... I may not color eggs, but I color images....and my toys aren't bunnies and baskets, but are now paper and ink.  Still a kid at heart I guess.  So here we go....  this week at:

 
the picture to be inspired by is:
 
 
 
Now isn't that just a great picture?!  Our sponsors this week are:

I was able to use an image from Paper Pretties.  I chose a bunny.  I used to have a toy that looked something like this bunny....my toy was one of those old metal ones that would wind up and his tail would go around and around.  The last time I saw him - his tail was off and it was was just the metal piece...his jacket was beat up....he certainly was well loved...and still is. 
 
This week I discovered why everyone is so crazy about decorator tape.  I've never really used it before but saw some in the store last weekend and bought a couple rolls.  One was perfect for the color scheme I as using.  I colored the image with Bic markers and then added a flower just for that extra pop of Spring. 
 

 
I hope you come over and play along with us at {PIN}spirational Challenges - and be inspired.  Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Zella, Love your story and I guess all of us who like to make cards and paper craft have some "kid" in us...It's what we did in kindergarten, colour, paste, cut-out. Your bunny is so cute and the tape is fabulous.
