Hop, Hop, Hoppin’ Everywhere!!!

Happy Monday all my friends and hope it’s the start of a great week for you all!  I am back home from my trip to West Virginia where I had a fabulous time teaching and hanging out with the gals at Almost Heaven Scrapbooking in Charleston.  We even had a full, beautiful rainbow on St. Patrick’s Day when I was leaving there to come home (see photo)…so I guess it was a good omen huh?!  I was even home Saturday night before midnight…that’s a record for me…and no I didn’t speed…well not excessively anyhow LOL!  And NO travel incidents…whooo hoooo…good for me, boring for y’all right? hahahah!  And I will be (it will be done by the time you read this) picking up Alexa at 1:30 am from her school….she’s been away for 3 days in NYC with her chorus/band/drama groups.  They had a blast but I know she’s tired and YUP they are expected at school at 8:30 and she will be there…her whining self and all….you play, you pay I say LOL!  She got to see Phantom of the Opera on Broadway and then do a workshop with the stars, they sang at a cathedral in Times Square, shopped, went on a harbor cruise, visited the Statue of Liberty and Ground Zero and more so they had a bang up time in the city me thinks Winking smile!  I on the otherhand will draggin’ a** tomorrow here at home trying to get things done on not much sleep LOL…what else is new for me…I live in a permanent state of sleep deprivation…ugh!

*************************************************************************
Easter Bunny Is Coming to Town Blog Hop!!



Today as well the Magnolia-licious DT is having a fun Blog Hop titled “The Easter Bunny is Coming to Town!” featuring spring projects for Easter that will hold treats or Easter eggs!  There are so many fabulous Magnolia stamps to use for this that I was stumped for awhile on which cuties to use LOL…but it didn’t take me tooooo long!  I used two from last spring’s collection Butterfly Dreams from Magnolia-licious that I adore…which led me to create this fun paper-wheelbarrow to hold some treats to match!

Now make sure to head over to the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog to see details on the Blog Hop & how to join in on the fun ok!!

I'm entering this into the following challenges as well:

Sparkle's Forum Challenges (spring or mom's day)
Penny Black & More (spring)
Totally Tilda (Easter)
My Sheri's Craft Challenge (Easter)
Crafty Ann's Challenges (Spring)



For the Easter card I used “Tilda with Hanging Rabbit” and “Wheelbarrow” together.  The papers I used are new from Prima “Meadowlark” and they are soooo yummy…I love lavender and buttery-yellow together…so spring-y!!  I distressed all my paper edges for a bit of a shabby-chic look.  The swirls are from the Heartfelt Designs die “Bella Rose” and then I inked the edges a bit.  The sparkly buttons are glitter dots…I am obsessed with them…love them…cuz they SPARKLE LOL!  The purple cs was embossed with a CB embossing folder for more texture.




Tilda was stamped, colored and then cut out and put on top of my other image with thin dimensionals for a bit more dimension.  These cuties got colored with Copics: V15,V12,V000 / YR31,Y000 / YG67,YG03,G20 / E11,E00,R20 / C5,C3,C1,C00 / E35,E31,E50.  Then I stickled her apron, wheel and the tulips for more sparkle…never can have enuff right?



This cute lil’ wheelbarrow is made of all paper and the template is from My Time Made Easy Pretty Packaging…I love Lauren’s templates so much!  They come in many file types including svg files but alas I do not have a cutter so I do the pdf files and hand cut them LOL…works for me!  I decorated with matching paper and swirls and loaded it up with some sour jellybeans (yummers).  NOTE: if you get this template just note that I needed to use double cardstock layers on the wheels to hold the weight of the treats, one layer was too weak.


Ok that’s all for me…now your next stop on this hop is 
so go hoppity, hop!! LOL
