Just Hatched LO

One of the perks of volunteering at my kiddos preschool are the fun pictures their teacher (who is also a photographer) takes of all of my girls.  The second that she showed me this pic, I started singing in my head, "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" and now every time the girls see the pic, they sing the song too! 
I knew I had to run home and scrapbook this picture, and I knew I wanted to use the chick from Simply Charmed but it turned out to be a tricky pic to scrapbook!  The colors in the picture are so bold and bright, that I had a hard time matching them up!   This is what I ended up with.



I would have loved to move the picture up and place the journal egg elsewhere, but the girlies slapped them down before I had a chance to place them.  Normally, this wouldn't be a problem to pull up but I had to use glue dots (which are permanent the second they hit) for the entire LO because I am out of my ATG tape!  GASP...can you believe that hoarder me let myself run out!  I have so many projects to get done that I haven't had time to run to Michael's.  
I did finally finished all of my Easter Orders and now I am pressed for time to finish my projects for the school.  Here is one of the little guys I am working on.  The bunny is from Oriental Trading but I am adding the cross around his neck so it relays the real meaning of Easter to the preschoolers!   The girls are doing their part by punching out all the scalloped ovals!
