Egg-ceptional Family Portrait


This is a new release called Merry Little Egg Heads from AiFactory and it's just in time for Easter, since that's the theme for this week's challenge.  Be sure to check out the Challenge Blog to see what each member of the design team has created for your viewing pleasure and to link up your creations for our viewing pleasure (plus to win prizes).

I have the privilegde of debuting the annual Egg Family portrait, and this year it's Egg-ceptional since they have a new addition to the family (he's the little tyke in the center).  He joins his twin brother and sister (the oldest), another sister, and a brother.  Mom and Dad are egg-tremely happy about their new little egg.

The portrait was hand colored this year (with Copic markers) and framed in their favorite color, yellow, using the Scalloped Edge Frame from Spellbinders.  This egg-traordinary (extraordinary) work of art (as far as the Egg family is concerned) is hung on the wall (patterned paper by DVWV) with ric rac and a brad for the nail. 

Copics used: Y00, Y02, RV04, RV09    YR16, YR18, Y11, Y02    R21, R22, Y000, Y11    V12, V15, Y11,Y02     B02, B04, Y02, Y11    YG93, YG97, Y000, Y00    C00, C1, B0000, B000
Other ingredients: patterned paper: DCWV, Spellbinder's Scalloped Egde Frame, ric rac, brad, glitter pen
