A Tisket A Tasket A Little Easter Basket

Good Afternoon!! Wow I had a lot of catching up to do yesterday with emails and reading and commenting on blogs. It is good to be back blogging!! For today I made an Easter basket for my daughter for Easter.

What I Used:
Wrap It Up Cricut Cartridge: Basket cut at 11”
My Creative Time: Hello Spring
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils

I made this very simple for my daughter as she is three and I figure it will be wrecked by the end of the day. The image and the sentiment are perfect for her as she is "My favourite Chickie". Today we are having an Easter Egg hunt with the daycare kids in the back yard and we have made up goodie bags for them each to take home. Saturday we are going to our second Easter egg hunt that a local church puts on for the young kids in the city. There are egg hunts every 30 minutes, bouncy castles and cookie decorating. My daughter is going to love it!

I am entering this into the following challenges:

My Creative Time:  Throwback Thursday Challenge: Episode 366

Krafty Girls : For Peeps's Sake! Challenge #4

My Paper Craft World: Challenge #80: Easter Themed

Just Keep On Creating: Challenge #1 Anything Goes
