Happy Easter and Blog Candy



I saw these Peppermint Patty baskets on Kathleen's blog a few weeks ago and knew that I wanted to use them for my Easter table. The tutorial can be found on Cambria's blog. They are so easy to make, and they don't take too much paper. Of course, I didn't do the Peppermint Patties. I just put some grass, an Easter Egg with jelly beans and put a Lindt Chocolate Carrot in there and they fit perfectly. I used Sage Shadow cardstock, Pretty in Pink ribbon and Spring Fling Designer Series Paper. I used my tag punches to make little tags to put everyone's name on. These will be my party favor/place cards for my table. They turned out really cute!
Previously I mentioned I would give away some blog candy when I had 3,000 visitors, well that time has come! Yay! So I have some goodies to give! This includes the following: Stampin' Up! On Board Art Journal 5x5, Stampin' Up! Birthday Whimsy stamp set; (the rest is non-Stampin' Up! Alphabet letter stickers, twill ribbon, flowers, brads, a Keepsake Display Box, and Kaleidacolor - Autumn Leaves Inkpad. What do you think? You wanna win this? If so, just leave a comment on this post between now and midnight EST, Tuesday, March 25th and I will pick a winner on the 26th!
