Easter Treat

Wow, is the weekend really already almost over? It just goes too fast!! We're cleaning like crazy today to prepare for my MIL and her sister arriving for a short week-long visit tomorrow, so I may be a little scarce the rest of the week. I'm super excited!

Before the week gets too crazy, I wanted to share this fun project with you. If it looks a little familiar, you're right!! I used the same tutorial that I altered for my Cheers! 2009 New Year's project. You can purchase the tutorial HERE from Andrea Walford. Andrea has tons of amazing projects and also offered an amazing Class Planning Service through her Demo to Demo website for Stampin' Up demonstrators.
Stamps: Chocolate Bunnies (Verve)
Paper: Chocolate Chip textured CS, So Saffron CS (SU!); White Pure Luxury CS (GinaK); printed digi papers from Celebrate Life by Penny Springman (Sweet Shoppe)
Ink: Momento Rich Cocoa (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Clear Tubes (PTI); acetate sheets; Copic markers; scallop border, scallop circle & circle punches, ribbon (SU!); jelly beans; Easter "grass"; hemp twine.

I kept to the tutorial instructions exactly for this project, just changing it up to fit an Easter project. It's hard to see it in the photo, but the little eggs around the bunny are paper pieced with coordinating papers from the same digi kit. I think it turned out SOOOO cute!! (aside from the fact that one of the tubes is badly tilting in the photo - ignore that!). And really it was much easier than it looks - the whole thing took less than 30 minutes, start to finish.

While I have you here....a couple of reminders:

This is the final week to play along for a chance to be the PaperCraft Planet Scrappy Sunday Guest Designer next month!!! At the end of the month, the PCP Super Novas will be voting on their favorite scrapper from all of the Scrappy Sunday weekly participants (must participate in the first 4 challenges in March)!!! You can see all of the weekly sketches and read the contest details HERE in the Scrappy Sunday group at PCP.

Have you had a chance to check out all the Egg-stra special projects the Verve Divas have been sharing over on the Verve Blog? Be sure to stop by and let the divas know what you think - you never know when you might win some Verve!!
