Tis the season...

Nope, it's not Christmas. But I'm counting down the days til' Easter.

I remember when we were kids and we'd hunt for Easter eggs. We made them out of real egg shells (there were very small holes where we siphoned out the yolk and eggwhite) which we painted/magic-markered. Mom and dad would then squeeze folded bills into the very small holes (which would pretty much make them into "large gaping holes") and hide them early on Easter morning.

It was so exciting looking for them (and finding out how much money we got, natch!). There was even a golden egg which was worth a whopping 50 pesos. Mom would always tell "bunso" (not me!) where most of the good eggs were. The neighbors (and passers-by) would scratch their heads wondering what we were looking for in the bushes and hedges in our garden so early in the morning. Lovely memories...

Scrappersatsg Challenge # 14

"Happy Hunting"

Whee! I'm hosting this month's challenge! And keeping up with the theme of "Easter", I went with an Easter egg hunting challenge. Actually, it was also my hubby's idea. =P He wanted a gimmick that was both connected with Easter and something new. I mostly liked the idea of hiding something somewhere in the layout and asking someone else to find it... hee hee.

Hehe, na-miss ko nga bigla ang mom and dad ko, at ang bahay namin. It was really mababaw pero parang ang saya-saya noon...
