Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!
I hope you are having a wonderful day with your family filled with chocolate and fun! Nothing better than an Easter egg sandwich to start your day! I wish it had been a nicer day for hunting, but the kids didn't care. Baylor (one of my twins) is still wondering how the Easter Bunny got those eggs up in the tree.

I found these cute little take out boxes at JoAnn's! I think there are 6 in a box for 99 cents. I bet they will have them even cheaper after Easter. They are easy to just pull the handle out, flatten and stamp. This set is that Create-a-flower set from Paper Salon again. I just LOVE Joy and Daisy's store Eclectic Paperie. I need to stay away for a bit though.... I just want EVERYTHING. I am stuck on this flower, but there are more in the tin.... I will play with them soon. Go and check out those cool stamps in the tins. I really want all the flowers... and you should see the Hemline tin! Next on my list baby! :)

I stamped the flowers with Timber Brown Stazon, then colored them in with ink in my classic ink pad lid with my aquapainter. I used Regal Rose and Certainly Celery to color in the images. The leaves are stamped with Olive Green Stazon. The center of the flowers are stamped with Pumpkin Pie classic ink and the tiny flowers in Bliss Blue. I added some glitter with the Sakura Gelly Roll Glitter pen from Starlitsudio. LOVE those pens! Ribbon is all May Arts and also from the bomb Cindy at Starlitstudio. Tag on the side is made with the tag punches from Stampin'Up! and tied with SU! grosgrain ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a break with me. I'm back to doing some laundry and picking up some of that Easter basket mess upstairs. I'll be finding that grass for weeks! We had our Easter dinner yesterday at my grandma's house, so today, I'm just giving thanks for all the love in my life. I'm so blessed with wonderful family and friends. I want to thank all of you too, for all your nice comments and emails. I love how this craft can bring so many of us together. Okay, okay... enough of the mush.... see ya tomorrow!

It's adorable! It sounds like you had a great Easter (funny how that grass seems to multiply and spread to all corners of the house :-)) I love all of your stuff and I am amazed at how much I have come to enjoy looking at everyones blogs and am starting to feel like I actually know some of you! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! *HUGS* Alex
