Hidden in Plain Sight
Template Challenge, April 5, 2012
Here it is Monday morning, and I should be getting ready for work. Today is going to be a long and tedious one at the bench, which probably explains why I'm procrastinating. Well, that and the fact that I am inherently lazy, but I digress...
I was on a bit of a scrapping frenzy this past weekend: five pages! (I've already posted two of those five pages, and two more I will not be posting, as they have people in them who would rather I didn't post their photos.) This page is one of two I made to document our neighborhood Easter egg hunt. This event is always such fun, one of the highlights of spring for our community. There's two of us who plan and put this together every year, and a few more who show up on the day of the actual egg hunt to help hide the eggs and set out the food and crafts. Once all of the eggs have been hidden, and before the little ones charge off to find them, I like to wander around with my camera taking photos. I always find some eggs hidden in a way that amuses me, and the photos on this page are two of those specially hidden eggs, where the word "hidden" is very loosely defined!
"Another year, another neighborhood egg hunt. I am always amused by some of the hiding places our volunteers find for the eggs. This year, these two caught my attention. A purple egg was “hidden” among some red berries, themselves nestled in and among the leaves of a green shrub, and a pink egg was hidden on top of a control valve. (And how do I know it was a control valve? Why, it was labeled, of course!) Since most of our erstwhile egg hunters are below the age of 4, we “hide” the majority of the eggs by tossing them onto the grassy field next to the clubhouse. The ones hidden in special places, though, are the ones I like to hunt and photograph before they are scooped up and added to someone’s Easter basket."
I know this page is a little busy ("Akk! A 'little' busy?!?" I can hear some of you saying!), but I had one of those "unleash the hounds" moments, a "get my ya-ya's out" moment, if you know what I mean. I haven't scrapped in so long, and with work being so busy right now I don't know when I'll be able to scrap again, so I just sort of exploded all over the page. One button became two, two buttons became four...you get the idea. Geeze but I love this hobby!
Have a great week, every one! Hope to see you all again soon!
