Another scrapbook page and a scrappy challenge!

I finally finished another scrapbook page! This is Jack almost 2 years ago grabbing eggs for an Easter egg hunt by our grocery store.
I did this page as a challenge for AllyScraps. I joined this website as a way for me to get back into scrapbooking. They have challenges all the time, and this is perfect for me!
This challenge was to use die cut alphabets for the title, although when I told the challenge hostess that I don't own a die cutting machine, gasp!, she said I could use stamps! Woo hoo! So, after 3 tries to get the right look that I wanted, I came up with the little chicks. It's Eastery so whatever! The other part of the challenge was when using die cuts, we had to put die cut shapes on our page as well. So, I incorporated the eggshells which are ovals from Nestabilities, and the chicks are circles and then I used a 1" circle punch from SU! for the head. I used the small star punch from SU! and then cut the points to make the beaks.
I ran the circles both bodies and heads through my Zyron and then adhered white Fun Flock over them to make them fuzzy like baby chicks are. I adhered everything together with Crystal Effects. I popped them up on the page with pop up circles.
The colors: Sage Shadow, Barely Banana, Almost Amethyst, Apricot Appeal. And I have no idea where I got my 12 x 12 paper. It just appeared in my collection! LOL!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Scrapping! :D
