Butterflies, Buttons and Easter Eggs

First off, I want to share my Card Positioning Systems sketch card for this week, this is where the butterflies come in. 
What made this card particularily fun was mixing these Cosmo Cricket papers and stickers together. 
Notice I gave both of the butterflies on the patterned papers a coat of Aleene's Paper Glaze. It gave them just the right amount of added accent. 
Do you love those corners!!! I used a Martha Stewart order punch to make my card fit the CPS sketch.
I also want to share a super quick and easy card. All I did was pull out some of my new Echo Park papers and stickers.  The row of buttons are a sticker!
And for some Easter photos...
This is how he was dressed for church on Easter morning.  We did a little photo shoot when we returned home.
Yes, you are seeing this correctly! A dressy shirt, tie and vest and DIRT!!! We could hardly keep him out of it while we finished taking pics!
Now for the annual egg hunt.  We hide plastic eggs all over the yard and they have MONEY in them! Yes, they are both going for the same egg but actually the shorter one spied the egg on the banch of the tree and the taller one is helping reach it!
This was his first year to really get the "hunting" part of the day.  Everything in his life right now is about dinosaurs, thus the cute shirt!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Both cards are amazing...not sure which is my favorite! I love the simplicity of the second one and the girlie cuteness of the first!

I have to say, though, I'd really choose that adorable little boy in a second.
