Blue buttons

Easter is almost here and I still have a few things on the least I can cross one more off :) 
Easter egg made out of buttons.  I would have preferred to do a pink egg, but I had a kajillion blue buttons, so blue it be. 

 I didn't want to thread each button, but it was kind of plain, so I added knots from lace scraps. Just the right touch.

During conference this past weekend I was able to get a lot of crafts done, while listening to words from our leaders.  A duo that is perfect for me :)

Next project, covered styrofoam eggs.  I did quite a variation last year, but I saw this idea a few years back and it just wouldn't leave my head.  These were actually acorns, but once covered I knew no one would be able to tell :) I took double sided paper and cut out 100 little flowers using my cricut.  (I fit all 100 on to one 12x12 page using my gypsy.)  Then I used my cute pins from Joann's and individually pined each flower on to the "eggs". 100 was the perfect amount.  I didn't have any extra, and I didn't need any more :)  Easy peasy. 

Vinyl Bunnies

How sweet are these little bunnies?  My friend Natalie is a VERY talented artist.  She designs cartridges for Provo Craft (among other things) and this is one of her images.  It's on a cartridge called "Sugar and Spice"  I loved the cute bunnies, and wanted to incorporate them into my Easter decor.  I got this charger from Hobby Lobby for $1.99, the vinyl I already had :) LOVE that.  

Another project, done!
And my cute eggs from last year found their home.  

Easter baskets

Iv'e wanted to do something cute for the past few years...but never got around to it.  I saw these SUPER cute pails at Target for $5.00.  By themselves they're cute enough, but I always like to leave my "touch" and personalize them.  SO they became this:

I used my crop-a-dile to punch holes through the pail.  I cut an egg shape using my cricut and "A Child's Year" cartridge.  The letters were taken from my "Nursery Rhyme"cartridge, and I used scraps to make cute ties in the front.  We are almost ready!
