RUSTY PICKLE - April Challenge

This was a great challenge from Rusty Pickle! http://rustypickle.typepad.com/picklelicious/ Made me work hard to place so much on one layout. Here is my entry... the challenge was to use all the stickers from one sheet on your layout... I used the "White Chocolate Bunnies Stickers." I love pink and brown together... I think the colors look great with the black & white photos. All products are Rusty Pickle except for the Jeni Bowlin felt flowers and Autum Leaves buttons. I had lost my scrapbooking mojo for sometime... maybe doing this will help get it back!

To celebreate my mojo returning leave a comment on this post by Friday, April 25th and I will have a drawing for some Rusty Pickle Alphas and a Stickers from the White Chocolate Bunnies collection. Be sure to check back to see who the winner is! TFL!
