So glad you had a great Easter. I really love that Goose ATC and your SMASH pages. I hope you'll check our March winners post if you haven't yet. :)
I had some great conversations on Easter Sunday.

Your post is as always so full of surprises. Very meaningful and full of warmth towards your family and friends.
My Easter was very quite. The church service was great. We all got a daffodil and during the service we all put the flower in a cross made of chicken wire. In the end we had a big flowering cross in front of the church. After the Easter service we had coffee and cookies and had a nice chat with one and other.
I wanted to be by myself and declined some invitations of my friends to have more coffee and went home.
It was good because I had to do some phonecalls and send some e-mails.
Thanks for your post. Have a fine week and sunny days like we have today.
Wil, ABCW Team

Sounds like you had a super Easter weekend. And already done your Smash book! How organised it that!

A perfect gift at Easter to see a lovely rose bloom. I like it all, your sweet little candy covers are lovely. The gift basket with the Fleur de Lis in gold on purple, how symbolic. The Tim Holtz flower decorations are something Granny would have done. The card with the Cross and purple bow is a tribute to our Lord. Thank you so much for posting your very beautiful art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday. We hope to see you back next week.
Blessings, Carole

Those Aggie eggs crack me up! I love Easter, and can tell by all the pics you do too. It's really the most important celebration ever! Gorgeous art!

So pleased you had such a lovely Easter, as we did with our family around us.
I love the pink rose and the snow goose.
I used to read a story, to my daughters', called 'The Snow Goose' by Paul Galico, which we all loved!
Your art work and creativity is wonderful,
You are truly blessed.

Easter Blessings to you and yours dear Arnoldo,

What a perfectly lovely holiday weekend-family, friends, art and God. You always make a holiday or celebration special for your loved ones. Adorable lollipop covers, wonderful photos and Smash book pages, and I especially LOVE the ATC with the quote. Have a wonderful weekend!
GlorV1 said…
Love the Smash Book Pages. Looks like it was a wonderful time. I also think that The Lord is Risen, Alleluia is really what Easter is about. Great post Arnoldo.
Christine said…

Hello Arnoldo, I think you would have enjoyed our short Easter service at dawn in the Church Garden. It lasted half an hour and the birds sang along with the hymns, followed by warm croissants and coffee. Simple but very moving.
I especially love your snow goose painting, it's really lovely.
The lollipop bunny covers are amusing, what a range of art you have for us today.
Faye said…
He is risen indeed! Arnoldo, thanks for the beautiful display of your Easter memories. And the rose is so gorgeous that it begs to be painted.
Giggles said…

Hugs Giggles

Love all of your Easter-projects, and that little rose is so beautiful and perfect....
bellefrogworks said…
He is risen indeed! I love that you created hand made gifts for so many - that is a terrific witness by itself. Easter is such a glorious day in the church year - without Easter there would be no Christian church.
Ariel said…
Great projects. Your smash book page looks stunning.
Happy PPF
Mrs.B said…
Great ATC -fabulous image.
Thanks for sharing with us at TioT
Michelle said…
My, you've been busy! Your work is not only delightful, but it's inspiring and uplifting as well. Thank you for that. And thank you for joining us this week for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. ~Michelle

You must also have a talent for gardening. That rose is magnificent. I have tried to grow many varieties over the years and the only ones that I've ever been successful with were Fairy Roses. But that's more of a ground cover, really.
Anyway...Thanks again for sharing your talents!
