A Tisket , A Tasket, I made a Couple Baskets! ;)

Sorry for the cheese, but I couldn't resist!  It doesn't feel right to say 'happy good Friday,' so I will say an early HAPPY EASTER WEEKEND!!!  Now, bring on the paper!

My fabulous CTMH Director, Mandy Leahy, posted a wonderful tutorial on how to make a super-easy Easter basket, so I decided to make them for my girlies and nieces.  I have to tell you they are unbelievably easy to make.  Here is a link to the video:

 I used the double-sided papers that come in the new CTMH Dotty for You Paper pack that you can order for a limited time beginning April 16th.  It comes with 24 papers, and is only $5 with your $35 order!  What a deal!  Each design has the dotty pattern on the backside in a different color.  These two baskets are for my nieces.
 This one is for my in-laws.
 Itty-bitty goodies!
Next, I made the bunny basket that everyone on our team has been making their own take on.  The idea and instructions can be found here:  http://www.creatingwithchristine.com/2012/03/hippity-hoppity.html
 I used the Lagoon and White Daisy cardstock and my Art Philosophy Cartridge (of course!) 
 I sponged the Lagoon Exclusive Ink onto the white edges.  I really love that sponged look lately.  Her beady eyes are the largest size black Opaque Adhesive Gems.
 Then I used the Paradise Paper Blooms and Sparkle Brad to add her flowery bling.  After much debate, I drew the whiskers on with a quick motion to make them feel light.
 Here she is sitting on my shelf!
