Christian Easter Digital Scrapbooking Papers

(16) Background papers in various Easter  Florals, Toile, Patterns and Textured Solids.

 It's hard to show everything individually, but here a some of my favorite pieces in the kit:


My favorite papers include a Sunday School Toile, which features children playing outside an old country church. I also love the bold tangerine floral and the brown craft paper with the stamped flowers. The stamped Easter bunny is in brown, but easy to change to other colors in the collection.  There are 3 crosses in the kit, shown here are two of them, I really like the charm bracelet, it's great for tucking into clusters.  Lastly the jelly beans make fun scatters and the baby's breath is a delicate touch.
