I made this Easter table arrangement for my sister who is hosting my mom's 80th b-day party! It took a long time to make,(there a zillion flowers on there!) but I think it turned out pretty cute! It was made using a styrofoam ball, bread crumb container, a chopstick wrapped in yellow ribbon and mostly scrap paper I found while organizing my scrap drawer! I am entering this into the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #53 looks like spring. Check it out at:

http://cricutcardzchallenge.blogspot.com/2011/03/cricut-cardz-challenge-67.html I used lime, hot pink and white. Now that I look at the picture, I can see the colors look pretty light but they are really bright. Darn! I really just have to get a new camera! ugh! Little man was sick today and for the first time in like 3 yrs he feel alseep on the couch for a nap! Well, I thought I would get in a little crafting but he kept teetering towards the edge so I had to *sigh!* fall asleep with him so he wouldn't fall off. What's a mother to do? (besides dad fell asleep upstairs where my craft table is so I couldn't wake him too! lol) Now he is up but still veggin on the couch so I am going to sit here with him and try to teach myself to quill. It looks so cool and I would love to make some pretty flowers for spring. I get distracted easily so we will see how this goes! Have a great weekend!

(ok, I am not giving him the basket, just showing him that I can make something!) I am having an Easter Egg Hunt at my house again this year and thought the little girls would find these kind of fun to put their found eggs in! I used fabric stiffner on the rbbon handle and added some cuts from Simply Charmed. Add some sparkle farkle eggs, a few flowers, grass inside and ta da, egg basket!
