It’s the 15th of the month sketch challenge over at another Freaking scrappy challenge … and the challenge is to:
Scrap an Easter memory (preferably when you were young) using spring colours in your layout.

I was sad that when I made my First Communion, my twin brother Gary could not make it with me. He was sick at home with the chicken pox.

You have until March 31st at 11:59 pm to post a link to your layout on the Mr. Linky for the challenge.
Here is my layout. I used K and Company die-cut flowers, butterflies and birds, and I altered some ephemera that I had downloaded from The Graphics Fairy for the First Communion title (see close-up). I used the new Dylusions by Dyan Reaverer Ink Spray by Ranger to spray the doily and the yellow splotches on the white Cathie Allan and Canadian Scrapbooker Super Stock card stock. Here is my layout and a close-up of the title card:
