My sister is a P.E. Teacher and she and her 9 yr old daughter came to Florida for Spring Break. My 4 yr old had a great time with his cousin and we miss them already! So, when I saw this challenge at Scrappy Mom's where the Paisley Cartridge had to be used, it was perfect timing! I had wanted to send a card with some pictures I took of the kids at the beach and this gym shoe screams Babe! (my sisters name) so I will include them in here.(I have to print them off the phone! ugh!) I used my Scrappy Mom's Simple Sentiments stamps which I love!, twine I ordered from a seller on Etsy, ribbon from Michaels, my Cuttlebug swiss dots folder, and Cricut orange patterned paper. http://scrappymoms-stamps.blogspot.com/2011/04/terrific-tuesday-challenge-paisley.html

I made this little card for a friend of mine who is having a boy in June. I love this little baby carriage from Simply Charmed! I used my Cuttlebug for the background, the paper is recollections, the stamp is from Scrappy Mom's Simple Sentiments and the "It's a Boy" ribbon is from Michaels. I am entering this into My Craft Spot Bundle of Joy Challenge #5. http://craftspotbykimberly.blogspot.com/2011/04/monday-challenge-5-bundle-of-joy.html

http://pattilynncreations.blogspot.com/2011/04/creative-sisters-monday-challenge-5.html and Patches of Pink Easter Card link up party http://www.patchesofpink.com/2011/04/easter-card-link-party-and-challenge.html. I used the bunny from Birthday Bash, a rubber stamp I got at Michaels,an Action Wobble(seriously, go get some of these!), a lil bling for the earrings for my girl and a little cupcake brad to go with this great paper I got that had a pretty cake on it. Easter=cupcakes and cake!
Today we had an Easter Egg Hunt at the house with about 10 of Liam's 4 yr old friends! We hid about 140 eggs out in the backyard(4 kids didn't show so that meant more eggs for the ones that did!)! We are on an acre and the eggs were scattered everywhere so it was really fun! We snacked on PB&J on rainbow bread-how cool is that?, chocolate covered marshmallows with sprinkles, cupcakes made with my new baby cupcake maker(its a really cool little maker, it takes 4 minutes for 8 cupcakes!!),carrots, fruit and chips! I wanted to make more decorations but got so busy I only got to add the little bunnies and chicks I made with the Cricut. The kids had a blast! They played with all the toys outside and had a field day with all of the toys inside too! I was so busy I didn't take pictures of all the kids running like crazy for the eggs or playing in the yard-ahhh!!!! Oh well, there is always next year since we do it every year! Each little one took home all their filled eggs(they had candy, rubber bandz, erasers etc inside)and a chocolate covered rice krispie bunny on a stick.(well, it was "supposed" to look like one anway!) I got that idea from those crafty ladies at Eighteen25. Now, I am off to relax now that all the little snot rockets are out of the house! lol
Patches of Pink is having an Easter Link Up party so I thought the pink feather boa project and rice krispie treats would qualify! http://www.patchesofpink.com/2011/04/easter-card-link-party-and-challenge.html
Have a great Saturday!
