Hoppy Spring! :)














Hi Everyone!

So I FINALLY got to particpate in the PTI Blog Hop this month!!! Glad you stopped by :)

















When I saw the challenge this month - I was pretty excited... while I do like Winter, I'm looking forward to Spring. I thought Lauren's Basket Template would be PERFECT for a Spring Themed project. I printed out the template and assembled the basket according to the directions provided. But what to put in the basket??? I've had these styrofoam eggs in my box of 'stuff' forever. I decided to take some of those wonderful Bridal Confetti Flowers and 'pin' them into the egg.
This could be cute for a place setting on your Easter Dinner Table!

The sentiment is from Flower Garden Sentiments, and the Butterflies are from Butterfly Kisses, my very FIRST PTI set.

Thanks for popping by, hope you enjoyed your visit!! Have a terrific night all!





Supplies:
Stamps: Butterfly Kisses, Flower Garden Sentiments
Ink: Brocade Blue (SU) Versamark
Paper: Bashful Blue (SU), Lemon Tart (PTI), Vellum CS
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds glitter (SU), Heat & Stick Powder, brads, bridal confetti, styrofoam egg
