Easter Borders with Creative Memories Border Maker System and Filmstrip Cartridge

Do you have Easter photos and you never know how to make cute borders for your pages?  

For me I struggle with Easter pages.  I think it's because I have a boy and girl so it can't be really "girlie" looking.  While playing with Creative Memories Border Maker System I came up with these borders using the Picket fence cartridge included with the border maker. 

I used the Filmstrip punch and cut the "Grass Green" paper, former CM paper, if you have some because you never had a way to use it? I weaved a solid green paper through punched border. Turning it on it's side looked like grass.  I cut out a solid green with picket fence and the extra zig zag pieces I glued to the bottom edge of weaved paper giving it a repeating look of grass like top.

Since I cut the green out to use for top border I thought of using the extra grass paper to weave the opposite way as done for top border.  Then I cut out another small strip and cut it with scissors to look like grass and layered it on top to give more depth.  I used former CM Easter stickers to embellish the borders.

I added the fence behind the first border that I made with Filmstrip cartridge in a prior post you can see how to make it here Filmstrip Fences,

Which one is your Favorite border??
