Easter Blog Hop...Hippity Hop!!

Happy Thursday friends!  Hope the week has been treating you well!  I almost had a cardiac-arrest experience yesterday...I was running around doing 50 million things think that it was Thursday already and I wasn't going to have all my work done before I left.  I literally was having heart palpitations from stress...then I went to put something in the calendar and I realized it was only Wednesday...bwahahahaha.  You ever do that?  Oh boy, what a relief it was to know I had one more day to get things in order.  SO I did finish all my projects and posts and will finish laundry today and all the packing.  I leave tomorrow with Alexa to pick up my Mom and head to Charlottesville for the weekend to see my Luke Bryan and Florida-Georgia Line....pit tix...so that means I'll be up close & PERSONAL with Lukey hee hee (I'm not scary am I hahahaha).  Then on Sunday we leave for Columbia, SC and spend the night...tour University of South Carolina on Monday and meet with the Marine Biology dept.  Then we leave that evening to travel to Birmingham, Alabama for two nights...on Tues we tour Auburn University (Alexa's first choice of college) and meet with the Zoology dept.  Then on Wed we will travel back up to Hilton Head, SC for a few days of rest at the beach...one of our fave places in the world.  Then we leave Easter Sunday for Charleston, SC for 2 days of fun...then home on Tues.  You tired yet?  Yeah me too...it will be crazy, chaotic but always fun and its all about family time for spring break.  So I will have a few posts up between today and April 2nd but not many...I try to make sure that I get quality-uninterrupted time with my family while I'm away and not have to worry about work stuffs much...hence the mad rush to get work stuffs done before I leave Friday morning LOL!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and spend it doing something fun!  And YES you know I will post my shenanigans and photos on Facebook if you follow me there!

I also have a new post up on my other blog "Bitz of Me"....for those that were asking for my BBQ ribs recipe...there you will find it!

Magnolia-licious Easter Blog Hop

Today the entire Magnolia-licious DT has gotten together for a fun Easter/Spring Blog Hop!  Each DT gal has created a project in the hippity...hoppity...Easter theme.  We hope you get inspired to get crafty as well and find some new ideas to try!  You can find the entire blog hop list at the Challenge Blog HERE!  Or start at the beginning of the hop with Norma Lee's blog!



I created a fun Easter book that opens up to reveal a box inside...perfect for yummy treats or other fun presents from the Easter Bunny!  The the book-box was cut on my Silhouette Cameo and the cut file is from the Silhouette Store...oh boy I can wander forever in the cut file store and put lots in my cart LOL. I love that I can buy just one cut file at a time instead of a cartridge of images I will never use...much more economical!   My image is new from the 2013 Easter Collection at Magnolia-licious called "Tilda Hiding Easter Egg"...so cute huh in her bunny outfit!  The "Once Upon A Time" is a cut file from Silhouette as well...I loved the font and curliques...I added some ink to it to distress a bit.  Then a few flowers and swirls from a Memory Box die.



I inked the outside of my book where in a real book you would find the pages....I used a light brown Copic Spica pen to draw random lines lightly with a ruler so it looked like a real book.  Then I filled my book with yummy Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs....Alexa's faves, shhhhh LOL!  I forgot to take a picture of the inside without the candy..but I lined the inside of the box with matching papers as well.  I left the left side of the inside cover blank because I will most likely write a message and attach it there for someone...shhh :)  **Forgot to add the papers are by Authentique "Hope" (10% off now)**


"Tilda Hiding Easter Egg" was colored with Copics:  E43,E42,E41,E40 / R20,E11,E00, E59,E31/ B99,B95,B91.  Yes she has some grass on her feet...why you ask...well I was gonna create a scene for her and then decided she looked better cut out...so there ya go....she has some grass stains on her footsies ;)  There are Stickles on the egg for some sparkle...oh by the way...that BIG egg in the background was cut from the Cameo as well.

That's it from me...now you need to hop on over to 
to see what Easter-awesomeness she's created for you!!

  22. Cute card! I mess up on days all the time. I can only keep up because of TV shows. That's how I know to set out the trash. The days fly by so quickly! Good luck to Alexa with AU. My daughter gets her PhD from there next August. Yippee! It's been a long road for her (5 years). Her AU sponsor has been wonderful! LS
