Peeps

Hi, everyone!!  This is my inspiration post for the new Love To Scrap Challenge Blog challenge: Anything goes.  We have several fabulous sponsors:
prize is 2 images

Leslie Turner (the owner of LTSCB!"
a surprise grab bag of goodies

$10 gift certificate

I was able to choose an image and sentiment from DRS Designs to work with and I chose the new "Simple Easter Bunny" and "Favorite Peep Greeting" because, really, who doesn't love a Peep!!??
 As you can see, I actually made 4 cards because I just couldn't resist.  I printed out four peeps on four different peep colored card stock then covered them with coordinating glitters to make them look all sugary like the real thing.  Aren't they just adorable!!??  I used the same layout for all four, just switched up the card stock color and I had to use two different floral papers to match up better with the card stock.  I started with this one for my grandmother because her favorite color is yellow.  This one is actually my favorite; it looks the most realistic.
 The pink one will probably go to my parents.  My mom shares my love of Peeps.

 The green is for my brother and his wife.  The green is the most "masculine" even if it does have pink, flowery paper.  : )  My brother says he does NOT like Peeps, but I think he just doesn't want anyone to know.
 And this one will be for my sister and her husband, but mostly for her because she also loves peeps, but only when they are stale.
Phew, you made it!  Sorry for the long post, but you just had to be able to see each of them.  Now hop on over to LTSCB and see what the rest of the DT has whipped up.
