Whimsical Wednesday Challenge reveal

Happy Hump day everybody :)  I love Wednesday almost as much as I love Fridays.. and this week I have an extra reason to love Wednesdays.. Its reveal time over the new challenge blog known as "Whimsical Wednesdays!"..  This week we were challenged to make a layout that was either Spring or Easter themed and it had to have a critter or insect on it...and So, here is my take on this weeks challenge...LOL
I appologize for the dark picture, but its been none stop raining here in Finland with absolutely no sunshine whats so ever!! but that can only mean one thing right? The snow will melt and all the pretty spring flowers will start blooming!! 

Now, I dont' have any photos of my kids with the Easter bunny, since I live in Finland and its just not possible here..So, I had to come up with another idea.  I'm sure you all figured out that I dont' scrap myself much (almost never) and when I thought of what to create for this challenge,  the title to my layout just kind of popped into my head and everything just forward from there..
I love the silliness of this layout, its soooo me!!

here are a few close ups of the layout:

 And for Supplises used:
Cricut cartridges:
Country life: clothes line, lady, horse and fence, chickens, mouse and wash tub
Pooh and Friends: grass, clouds and tulips
Doodlecharms: ladybugs and sun
Stretch your imagination: title "spring"
Cindy Loo: title " I ain't no, chicken!"
George and basic shapes: large background circle

Cuttlebug and Dots embossing folder
Inks: Tim holtz: Mustard seed and Peeled paint
Inks: Verca color: pink and light blue
Chalks for shadowing

Papers by : Do Crafts "papermania" Rose Garden

That about does it then!!
I want to thank you ladies so much stopping by today and looking at what I've created for Whimsical Wednesdays' and I certainly hope this layout put a smile on your face, cause it sure does for me!!
Hope everyone has a wonderfully creative rest of the week..
