Happy Easter!!!

Welcome to our Easter Basket Parade Blog Hop!!!

We are glad you could join us in our dens today, we are "roaring" to show you our projects!  We have been busy busy busy making creations with a basket theme, and we do hope you enjoy them!

You should have come to me by way of  Margaret's Den, here.  But if you happened upon my blog by accident, start at the beginning with Elsa in her Den here.  I left a full list of the line up at the end of my post.  We all hope you enjoy prowling around, hunting for our creations.  

Now for my creation.  I did a YouTube video that you can also check out.  I loved making this creation!

 The theme this month is to do something with a basket, in honor of Easter.  I went a little bit literal with the theme, but decided to create a door "wreath" with the idea!  I used Bazzill card stock and wove a front to the basket, after inking the paper strips with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  I then attached it to the front of a 1" wide box I created to hold all of the goodies.
 The box that I used is the height and width (at the bottom) of the basket front, and 1" wide.  I used extra pieces of the woven paper to create the handle.  
 I bought the cute bunny and chick, but created the eggs and the flowers.  The eggs and the chocolate bunny are cut from my "Easter 2010" Cricut cartridge.  (Did you see the bunny already has a bite out of it's ear?)  I made doubles of everything, then stuck skewers in-between the "sandwich" of the cutouts, so that I could stick them into the basket.  The grass is paper grass I bought at Hallmark.  
The lovely trim that I put on the basket was an awesome RAK from Elsa, and I was waiting for the right project to use it on...here it is!  The flowers are Recollections and Petaloo.  The bling is Recollections, the the butterfly is unknown.  The papers I used for the eggs are from K and Company.  

I sure hope you liked this project.  Please let me know what you think.  Now, please go on over to stalk Sherain and see what she has in store for you in her den!

Thanks for looking!!!  Have a wonderful Easter!!!
