Sugar Sugar Easter Project

Well 1st you believe already a third of 2009 has past???
I must be getting old commenting on the weather on my blog and how time flies. I really must get some more interesting topics of conversation!!
Thank you to all of you who took the time to take part in my turn at the Sugar Sugar project last month. Your cracked glass examples were stunning.
This month we have been asked to create an Easter project. As soon as I read this I knew what I wanted to create. I sent the boys out to the woods with their Dad to bring me back a nice branch. I placed some soil in a plant pot and stuck my branch in.
I had great intentions of making my own dyed eggs, but I was at a Garden Centre the other week and there sitting in a gorgeous bag were these decorated eggs. How could I resist?? This meant I had more time to concentrate on decorating the plant pot.
For the pot I wanted to create a 3 dimensional feel. I choose Annie and stamped her skirt again and curled it to make it 3D. The grass is a quickutz die and the butterfly is from the die-cut shapes in the Basic Grey 'Urban Prairie' collection. I punched the eggs shapes out and placed some of them on foamies. The swirl is stamped and then highlighted with white ink pen. I punched the blossom out and added the centres with liquid pearls.

I hope you likey! It is sitting now on my coffe table in the living room and makes the room feel very springy!

Check out what all the other 'sweeties' have created and our fabulously talented guest for this month, Rach! You can find all the details here!
