Easter Baskets and a little surprise...

Yesterday I was feeling poorly so in between some cleaning and laundry I would take a break and veg in front of the TV in my scrapbooking room. I also took the time to put away my stuff from the sat. swarm and pulled out the "lame basket" I did for the challenge Sat.

I needed to make three more so working from mostly leftovers and what Tomi called "rummage" items (in other words stuff that has been stuffed away in a basket for me and never touched since I bought them) I finished up the other three. The rules were that you couldn't "pick" through and find something but just reach in your deep dark storage spot and pick an item then use it as inspiration for a project. My rummage item you can hardly see but they are some cute brads I bought at the Target Dollar spot. Then I also pulled out the popcorn boxes I had cut for something else that ended up not being used. Using paper, ribbons and some Argyle bunnies cut with my cricut I created some little baskets to fill with goodies for my grkids. The original was a "test run" and I found that there were some things that I needed to do differently...

First of all his ribbon bows were cute but a bit overwhelmed with the blue gingham paper baskets and the bunny needed to be outlined a bit to show up. One is a girl bunny and the other three are boys.

So anyway there they are...

When I took the picture I sat them beneath my kitchen window for the light and when I was editing the picture I noticed a bird clinging to the screen outside. I have a Finch feeder right by the window and caught this little girl (I think) waiting her turn hanging on the screen! LOL

All I can say is that your Grandkids are very special and lucky to have such a great Nana. Oh, and don't think that they look lame!
