We are hop-hop-hopping this week and hope you are all having fun checking out the brand new Noel Mignon store and are finding all of the hidden Easter eggs!
All you have to do is read each blog post this week and, using the clues given, head to the store, find the eggs hidden in the store and post them in your Facebook or Instagram feed with the tag #noelmignon. One lucky egg finder who posts the image of all 5 eggs will have a chance to WIN the May kit, "Carousel."
Here is your clue for today:
Today's egg can be found in an all time favorite product. This sturdy alphabet is perfect for title work. It is sparkly, and the color of something you chew. Start your hunt here... http://www.noelmignon.com/ and be sure to copy and paste the egg (or screenshot it) and share on your facebook or instagram (or both) feed with the #noelmignon, so we can spy your find.
Speaking of Easter Eggs, I have an Easter layout to share with you today that I made using the April kit, Social Butterfly.
I really liked the idea of using this paper for a background and knew right away that I wanted to cut out some of the squares. I first figured out where I wanted my photo block to be and chose random squares around that area to cut out using my x-acto knife. I used spray mist and a paintbrush to paint around the edge of the squares and then backed the openings with other papers from the April kit, adhering them to the back of my paper with tape. I misted my background with droplets of a variety of spray mists (some Heidi Swapp Color Shine and some Studio Calico Mister Huey) to mimic the egg dye.
I used one of the Jillibean Soup mini placemats on the left side and some of the fun distressed Thickers as well. The pink bow matched so well with Sarah's egg that I just "had" to add that, too.
I added some of the fun October Afternoon stickers here and there on my page to finish things off.
