Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! Hope you all are having a wonderful day.  I spent a lot of this weekend working on a swap that's due next Saturday - it's a Twilight shoebox swap. I am so excited about getting this mailed out! For a lot of the items, it was my first time making it - altered matchbox, chunky charm, altered notebook, etc.

I worked on my matchbox last night and just love it! I hope my partner will too. I think it turned out pretty good with it being my first one. I don't want to give anything away, but I do want to post a sneak peek. This is of something INSIDE the box. And I will post pics once I mail it out and she receives it.
DeeAnn - I am so glad we are both Team Jacob!

Very cute box- great colors. I didn't use to be a fan of glimmer mist but when I found out all of the things I could "color" with it I am a convert! Thanks for sharing! Kim aka coyotekim

Bashful Bunny Blog Hop

I am so excited to be participating in my first Blog Hop. These are a great group of ladies that are on the Cricut MessageBoard. We were in a "secret bunny" swap and just have way too much fun together! What would go better with the bunny theme than a blog "HOP"?? You should have arrived here from the wonderful Sheri @ Somewhere Over The Rainbow. If you are coming into the middle of the hop, why don't you go ahead and start at the beginning with Julie? It will be lots of fun and you are bound to be inspired!

We were supposed to make something with an Easter/Spring theme. I made what I call a "Trinket Box". I started out with a plain paper mache box (in an egg shape!). I painted it with acrylic turquoise paint, then glimmermisted it to make it sparkle. I then added some paper flowers, rhinestones, ribbon and a butterfly. The butterfly was part of a 3 pack that I found at the Dollar Tree. I didn't have quite the right color of ribbon that I wanted to use around the bottom part of the box, so I used white ribbon and glimmermisted it for that wonderful lavendar color.  Then, of course I had to place some special bunnies inside to top it all off!

Also, since it's Easter time, it just makes sense to give away *blog candy*!! All you need to do is become a follower and leave a comment under this post! Make sure to leave an email address or something so that I can contact you. If you are on the MB, you could leave your email or your MB name. This is my way of thanking all of you for being the wonderful people you are! I will use and pick a winner on Monday, when the blog hop is over.

Here is what I will be giving away: A pack of ribbon, a Thank You stamp, and the Cuttlebug folder Divine Swirl. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful time and get inspired on this hop. Your next stop along the way is DeAnn! Enjoy!
