Alpha Challenge #03 - Easter

Oh The Craft Barn is weaning me in oh so gently with their Alpha Challenge letters. I have chosen the theme of "Special Days" and so far have had "V" for Valentine and "C" for Christmas and now "E" for Easter! 

My small dictionary didn't have any E's left so I had to tear a page out of my other "craft" specific dictionary. Nice that my word was on the first page though, so I could show the "E" off.

I highlighted the word "earnest" too, it was my father's middle name (spelt Ernest) and it is a good character trait to have methinks, my father certainly lived up to it.

Lovely page BJ. I am intrigued at what you are going to choose for some of the letters. I have done an alphabet of celebration so just give me a shout if you are stuck my lovely!

Thank you so much for joining in again xxx

A beauty of a page. Love your story of how it came about. The addition of a bonus word with meaning blends quite well with your primary word, Easter.

you're sure you are going to find a special day for each letter of the alphabet ? lol.
Easter is the perfect choice here, and not "far off" on the calendar.
Thanks for playing with us at the Craft Barn
