"The Bright Side of Life" - The Scrap Cake

Hi there!
I`m so happy finally to be able creating with the beautiful "The Bright Side of Life" collection from The Scrap Cake. It was designed by so talented and such a sweet friend - Karola Witczak.
All the pattern papers are so pretty that it took me some time to decide which one to use first ;-)...
Eventually, this is what I came up with....
I cut a big "Happy Easter" title with my Cricut which I used for my background as a mask. I used "Graphite" Glimmer Mist.
I did some fussy cutting from the other pattern paper and I made it pop-up by using 3mm foam tape...
For the rest, I use Martha Stewart edge punches, Tim Holtz` rosette die-cut.... 
And sweet hubby of mine...Thank you for the awesome title.....Yes, I give credit to him.... xoxoxo! Did you know that my hubby is my judge for every single layout I create ;-) He is involved to pieces with my  hobby and he supports me 100% in everything I do :-))))...Thank you, Ar! I "heart" you!!!!
The bird cage was also cut with the Cricut machine....
The title is from Provo Craft Cuttlekids Fairy Alphabet dies. Each letter was cut 6 times and then glued with each this way I created my own chipboard!
And one more close-up....
Well, this was my layout for today:-)
