Easter Basket...

Hi Everyone!  It's the start of a new week and I've got a ton of stuff planned.  I've got some fun projects to show you for DT and GDT spots.  I've also got to get ready for my first Monthly Card Class that I'm putting on at my home on Saturday.  The stamps just arrived yesterday so I can finally get started on the card that we're going to make.  I stopped by Archiver's yesterday and picked out the papers.  It's going to be very Springy!!!

On another note, a couple weeks ago I heard from Judi Maddigan over at Angels Landing.  She just launched some new digi designs and asked if I'd be interested in helping her promote them.  They are just adorable!!!  The little bunnies are perfect for Easter and Spring.  My project is below.  It was a true joy to make and I'm so happy with how it turned out.

Easter Basket

I've had these dp's from Graphic 45 for a while now and couldn't wait to do something with them for Easter.  This was the perfect project.  I decided that I wanted to make some sort of Easter basket and I have absolutely no basket weaving skills whatsoever!!!  So, I decided to do the best I could with what I had.  I made two flat surfaces by weaving two complimentary patterns together and securing them with Scor-Tape wherever necessary.  I trimmed the sides so they angled a bit like a basket would if you looked at it straight on.  I made a little 5 sided box to fit between.

The faux basket is trimmed with lace from my stash and flowers from WOC.  The image and background were cut with some SB dies.  I filled the basket with some moss from the craft store.  I like it much more than the shiny plastic stuff that you always find in kids Easter baskets on Easter Sunday.  The two fluffy chicks were a terrific find at Michaels when they first put out their Easter stuff.

Finally, a closeup of the Angels Landing bunny.  This darling little bunny was an absolute joy to paint with DI's.  I hope you'll take a look at the rest of their collections as they are just beautiful.

That's all for today!  I hope you'll stop by tomorrow for our Magnolia-licious DT sketch challenge :-)
