Happy Easter



My bestest friend Tanyascrappyscavenger brought me a box of "goodies" last week and I loved everything. I was trying to think of something cute to make my 1-2 year old Sunday School class and found it in my "prize" box. She had given me several packs of favor boxes.  I stamped an Easter image from Peachy Keen Stamps and a sentiment, put a little white "grass" and then took a plastic egg and put a fluffy little chick I found at Michael's.  I think they turned out so cute.  I hope everyone has a Blessed Easter---and thank you Tanya for everything--I love you.

Easter Cards

We all love Easter and Spring---even if it has been freezing here. I made two Easter cards that are really simple and I plan to give them at Church tomarrow.

The first one I used paper I had left over from a Monique Griffith project and I just think the paper is so cute.I tied a ribbon on the side, inked around all the edges with ink my BFF Tanya Scrappy Scavenger gave me and stamped the sentiment from a stamp from My Creative Time.



The second one was even easier---I bought a Martha Stewart rabbit punch on sale at Micheal's so I punched different shades of purple,stiched around the edges with my purple pen and the sentiment is from the same set from My Creative Time.I added flowers and pearls from my stash .



I hope everyone has a great Easter-----and please find the Golden Egg.With all the beauty of Easter we must remember the true meaning and that is Jesus died so we may have eternal life.And that is the best part of Easter.Stop back tomorrow to see another fun project.
Hugs, Anita

3/23/2013 Spring Fling

It's March and Spring is in the Air when a young man's fancy turns to fishing and a young girl's fancy turns to a new wardrobe!!! Ok, maybe not but there are so many things out that there to symbolize Spring Has Sprung ....

For my project I had a wonderful project planned, layed out, but it was designed to go outside.  We have had rain, rain, and more rain today, so I couldn't complete my original project concept.  I did however make an Easter Card using a stamp from Sherry Baldy Designs.  The Sentiment is from Peachy Keen Stamps.  I hope you enjoy it.

Altered Frame Blog Hop

Brought to you by the Krazy Crafting Crew,
our independant hop team is bringing you ideas on how to alter frames, decorate frames or put decor in the frame instead of a standard picture.


If you have just stumbled upon the hop, Robin at Scrap and Chat www.scrapandchat.blogspot.com will be your host today, or if you came from Liz~ www.tryin2craft.blogspot.com you are in the right spot. Please grab your cup of coffee or favorite drink, relax for awhile while browsing through the projects and get ready to win some blog candy!

 One great reason to comment on each blog is so you can also win with
Our sponsor, Scrapbook Stamp Society

They would love to reward one special blog visitor with a prize from their store. To be qualified for their drawing, please comment on all participating blogs and let them know you have.  You can receive extra entries for following them on Facebook Group.

So for today's hop, this is what I made for my project.  A special young lady I know named Taylor is getting married soon.  I used a marble tile that was removed from the State of Alabama Capitol during a renovation in the early 1990's.  The marble is over 100 years old.  I used my cricut to cut the letter for the couple's "foundation" gift.


 
I also made a guestbook for her shower using an altered notebook.
