Hello Spring

I really hope to be able to earnestly say that in a few days. We are still below average temps for this time of year. I know the heat will be here soon enough, but I have had enough of old man winter.

Wanted to share with you a project I did for It is the new Echo Park Springtime collection. I am falling deeply in love with the Echo Park papers. If you have not tried any of them, you are surely missing out.

 This is the other side of the basket.

 On the left are some of the papers I used. The template for this box is from a scrapping book. The original design required stitching but I used my Sakura glitter pen for that instead.

Next I cut some embellishments using the Easter 2010 Cricut Cart. I think the grass is from Walk in my Garden and not sure about the Bunny. I used my Gypsy so keeping track of what was used can be quite difficult. You can clearly see the difference in leaving them plain and using some embossing folders and ink to bring them to life. I used glossy accents on the Happy Easter.

The next are views from the side. I am planning on making a number of these to fill with Spring treats for visitors.

This was fun. Hope you enjoy my peek into Easter and into Spring. Have fun getting your fingers inky. In the Name of Love of course.
Until then.
