Happy Easter!!

Does anyone remember your new Easter outfit as a kid? I always got a really special new dress, tights, shoes.. the whole sha-bang. But I couldn't wear it until Easter! That's a long wait for a kid. This image by Mo Manning, named Easter Bunny, reminds me of that:

Here's a close up:

You can see how I made those clouds here.   You can see in this pic that I had a hard time chosing my pinks (and didn't want to remake my little chart.. lol)
The first set of pinks was to match paper I changed my mind about. The second set proved too bright once I added my purples. It just didn't look right.  Sounds like the tale of Goldilocks.. the third one was just right ; )

Challenges:
A Spoon Full of Sugar - All Creatures Great and Small
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
