Easter Bunny Family

Good Morning Everyone!

So nice to see some SUNSHINE today. The weather has been too crazy. Saturday and Sunday we were above 80, then by Tuesday it was snowing again.  I'm so ready for spring.

SVGCUTS.com came out with this adorable bunny a few weeks ago. I knew I wanted to make a few. Barbi, Kevin and Corbin are receiving the white, yellow and green. My BFF is receiving the purple since that is her favorite color. I'm keeping the pink. 

You all know that I love to add Googly Eyes anytime I can and these little bunnies were perfect for the ones with lashes. I did not have any solid pastel 110 lb card stock so these are not as light as I would have preferred but they still turned out cute.

They are  the perfect size. If packed away correctly these could be a part of your Easter decor each year.

I decided to try some Tile Coasters. I did make the mistake of only watching 1 video which did not state that if you are using a Ink Jet Printer to print out your photos that you needed to wait 24 hours before using. I learned the hard way that the ink will bleed. So I have red ink that bled onto the edges of the tile.

These are for Corbin, his mom, dad and poppy. I don't think they will mind that they are not perfect. Next time I will not make the same mistakes.

Classmate Easter Treat Boxes

Good afternoon everyone.

Sorry, I have been MIA the past few days. I lay around and watched TV the 3 days Sam was gone to take Corbin home. Yesterday I worked on some blog stuff.

Today I have the adorable treat boxes that we made while Corbin was here for his classmates.

I took the Bunny by Miss Kate Cuttables  and made a shaped card. Then I cut out an egg shaped in the tummy of the bunny and printed From Corbin to the top inside. Then I took the 3D Conversation Heart Box by Lori Whitlock and removed the heart replacing it with the same egg shape.

Corbin picked out the paper for the boxes and we print and cut using the Silhouette. We added transparency film over the egg shaped.

We folded the card and then took the bunny which instead of layering we welded together and glued to the top of the card aligning the egg shape on the box to the egg shape on the card.  Corbin wanted the girls pink and white and the boys had to be chocolate.

We added the Happy Easter Title by Michelle Renee  to the box and he was very pleased with how they turned out. We did not put candy in them, that is something his mom will do.

Chopped Champion Cooking Challenge and Apron

As many of you know Corbin is here this week for spring break. He is addicted to the show Chopped. I thought it would be fun for us to have a chopped night while he was here and last night we did.

The first night he was here he made as he called it fake money totaling $22.530.00 for the winner to receive. I made a Chopped Champion Apron.

Corbin picked the ingredients for me and poppy and then I chose Corbins. He was real cute when we told him that we would have a chopped challenge and said well please give me eggs because that is all I can cook. 

Well for poppy he chose Tator Tots, Baked Beans and French Fry Seasonings.
For me he chose Wiener's, Ketchup, Mustard and Onions.
For Corbin I chouse Mac & Cheese, Eggs and Mayo.

We knew that we were going to let him win. However, we did not have to let him. His deviled eggs and mac and cheese we better than what we had cooked. The wiener's I left cooking to long, poppy's tator tots were mushy. 

He did a fabulous job on both his dishes.

Here is a pic of him cooking, the happy winner and the apron.

My 1st In The Hoop Purse

I have been wanting to make one of the INH purses or wallets. I'm amazed that the entire purse is sewn and zipper put in all in the embroidery hoop.

Sam is leaving tomorrow to pick up Corbin so I thought I would make one of these and send to Barbi. I should be ashamed to give her my first one, she gets the practice one. lol

I see many of these in my future. They would make great makeup bags, for a cell phone, coupons and anything that you might want in it's own bag in your purse for easy finding.
