Easter Bonnet Layout Challenge

Hi everyone and Happy Easter! I'm Sharon aka Art for Scrapbooking
Welcome to my challenge and I hope you have a great weekend both here at GDS and in the real world.

I have a special Easter inspired challenge for you during our Extravaganza. In my past life I taught Kindergarten and one of my favourite days was the Easter bonnet parade. That inspired me to create the challenge to make a layout featuring the
MOST AWESOME EASTER BONNET EVER.

You have lots of options
use a photo of you wearing your easter bonnet
use a photo of you and add a digital easter bonnet
or be creative and use a representation of you with an easter bonnet
THINK CREATIVE, a layout, maybe art journalling or even ATC

Here is my attempt. I couldn't resist using this gorgeous photo my son took of my daughter and I.
I only just saw it last week when she gave me photos to make a book of our holiday.
I am usually the one behind the camera so it is unusual lol.
Her favourite color is pink.

I used my own products except for Eirene's gorgeous Easter eggs and swirls.
To help you out Eirene and I have a little bundle of Easter graphics for you.
These are not a requirement - you can just use them if you wish.
Grab them here (http://www.artforscrapbooking.com/GDS/easterbonnetgift.zip)and you may use them for PU outside the challenge.
You have until 11:59 p.m. EST on Sunday, March 31 to complete this challenge. Use of GDS products is not required, but is strongly encouraged and much appreciated.
Post your layout in the gallery here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=517) and please post a link to your layout in this thread.
Everyone who posts by the deadline will also receive this gift.

As I have over 50 hats... and most of them are decorated with lots of flowers, feathers and bling.... I decided to use a photo of me wearing one of my favorite hats.

Great idea for a challenge Sharon :)
Too funny...as I have never worn an easter bonnet that I can remember...and I generally hate wearing hats so this was the most I could bear to put on my head!!!!!!:laugh:

Awesome Renee and so glad it inspired you t wear one. I hate myself in hats too lol. Some people [like my youngest daughter] just look awesome in any hat but I just look stupid rofl. I think it is harder to pull off with glasses.
I love your photo and you are gorgeous. thanks so much for joining in the challenge.

OOh gorgeous hat. Do you have a special room for them all ? Thanks so much for joining in the challenge.

Most of my hats are in the master bedroom on shelves above the door [have a very high ceiling in there] with some in a nitch on one side wall. 4 of my favorites are in my craft room sitting on top the hutch on the sewing desk. Will have to do a LO with where they are stored one of these days! :laugh:

That would be a great idea.

Here is my layout showing a few places I use to store part of my 50+ hats:

As you can see, I love Hats and wear at least one of them 2-3 times a month. Being a member of the Red Hatters we wear hats to all our gatherings.

I also have about 25 hats in other colors that I wear for other occassions. Those are stored in hat boxes in closets.

ETA: I do use a step-stool to reach the ones over the doorway and a ladder to reach the ones in the nitch.

Thank you for the fun easter bonnet challenge. Even though my mom loved to put me in hats, I personally do not like having things on my head. Although I have worn flowers once or twice. Here is my attempt at making an Easter bonnet (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=117783&title=tricia-easter-bonnet-w&cat=517). And my first attempt at working in ATC size.

And since my mom (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=117784&title=my-mom-my-angel&cat=500) wanted me to wear hats, I decided to give her a halo of flowers.

Here is me in my various Easter Bonnets (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=117796&title=easter-bonnet&cat=517) as I was growing up.
My Mom always made all our clothes, as you can see my sister and I were usually dressed alike. My Sister is 7 years older than me, I am sure she was thrilled, lol.

Wow that is fantastic. Very clever doing it in all those places. I love your sewing desk - it looks so organized.
