It's been a very busy day today. Fixed brunch,got the girls off,made DH cookies for his lunch tomorrow (he is starting at a new store),found some of the Easter recipes I wanted,finished a couple of projects around the house and I just put dinner in the oven and decided to sit down and start this post.

I brought my scrapbook supplies into the living room so I can work on some projects after Mark goes to bed. I've got some more Easter die cuts I want to get made and I need to finish up my Easter cards so I can get them in the mail tomorrow.

Here is a layout of my grandson. He was excited about turning 7....he is growing up way to fast! It seems like just yesterday he was learning to walk.

Here are a couple of easy craft projects for the kids to make with egg cartons aren't they adorable?

Have a great evening, Bonnie

More Easter Layouts

We are leaving on Friday to see the grandkids for Easter so I've been busy making Easter layouts. I thought this year I would get a little a head of the game and have some of my layouts done before I take a million and one pictures over Easter weekend.

My grandson is waiting to color eggs until I get there so I made this layout. I can't wait to get his picture to put on it. I also have some Easter charms and flowers I want to add after I have the pictures

Here is the other side....isn't that the cutest little rabbit in the cart?

This week I'm also going to be busy making Easter Candy. I'm going to paint some chocolate and make these adorable little chicks and peeps

I better go make dinner. Hope you have a wonderful day. Leave us a comment we'd love to hear what your planning for Easter.

These aren't the greatest pictures but I wanted to show you the adorable Snowball fighting Penguins and the Monarch Butterfly boarder I found.

I really need to get my scanner hooked up so I can scan these layouts. I will work on that this coming week. I have more layouts to show you but I think I'll wait until I get the scanner hooked up.

Easter Eggs

Do you remember these adorable Easter Eggs?

I thought I would make them again this year.
Here's what you need to make them
1 dozen eggs
Food coloring
Sharp Knife

Hard boil your eggs and peel. Place in food colors of your choice. Leave until they are the desired color you want. Let dry then cut jagged edge with sharp knife and fill with your favorite deviled egg recipe.

We took a mini-vacation and got out of the snow for the past 4 days. It was so nice to be in warm weather....short sleeves and flip-flops :-)

I got to have lunch with girl friends I haven't seen in awhile. It was a great time. Now it's back to the Retreat and back to work!

There was no snow when we got back fact the weather is beautiful today. It's still a little brisk out but the sun is shinning and the sky is a beautiful shade of blue.

I best go get ready for the Retreat. Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Easter Layouts

Here are a couple of the layouts I made for Easter. Sorry the pictures aren't better. I still haven't figured out a good way to take pictures of layouts. Anyone have any suggestions?

It's snowing again today. Right now it is coming down pretty good here is a picture of just before I started to write this and here is one about 5 minutes later. It sure didn't take long for it to turn white! One thing about this cold weather I love to stay inside and bake. I'm off to make some cookies and banana nut bread. Have a great day!

Do you know what this is? Yes it is the Yudu and Michael's has it on sale for $99.99 today! That's a great price if you've been wanting to get one of these this would be a great time.

I've heard mixed reviews on them. Some people say the are really difficult to use and others just love them. Here is their website Yudu just in case you want more information.

If you have one or get one let me know how you like it I'm still trying to decide if I need one. I've heard to many negative things so I've been putting off getting one however this is a great deal. It's probably a good thing I live so far from town or I might be at Michael's picking one up!

Today I am busy making bread and cookies so I will post some Easter ideas either later today or tomorrow. Hope you have a fantastic day!

Easter Carrots

Ok ladies remember these Hot Chocolate Bags and I told you you can make them for any holiday or party favors?

Well how about a cute little carrot for Easter. All you have to do is fill them with orange jelly beans,gumballs or M&M's.

Looking for something for the little guys who can't eat candy or just want something a little healthier? Fill them with Fish Crackers. I saw this cute idea on The Moody Fashionista's Blog.

What you need to make Carrots

1. Piping bags (1 per carrot)

2. Green Ribbon

3. What ever orange filling you want....jelly beans,gumballs,m&m's, crackers


Fill piping bags with jelly beans and tie the end with green ribbon.

These are Cute and Easy.....what could be better?

How about Chocolate Dipped Peeps

I can't remember where I saw these sorry if any one knows I would be happy to give that person the credit.

Since the rage this season seems to be everything taste better on a stick I'm going to add a sucker stick and put them in a vase for a center piece for the kids table on Easter Sunday.



Chocolate for melting

Easter Sprinkles


Melt chocolate in microwave or on top of store. Take your peeps and dip them in melted chocolate and roll in Easter Sprinkles

I would love to see or hear about what you are making for Easter. Have a great day!
