Scrapping with the kids

With easter just around the corner the kids wanted to give their friends something for easter.  Money is very tight at our house at the moment so buying easter eggs for everyone was out of the question.  So this is what I did.  I mange to get hold of some little bags, cut out all the bunnies, grass and printed the Happy Easter off the computer and after dinner away we went.

 Here are the kids having a go and enojying themselves.  I might have to think of a few things like this to do over the school holidays.  I even had hubby bagging up all the little eggs for the little bags.  A whole family effect here. 

 Here is the end result.  Drum roll please.....

They look fantastic and the kids had a ball making these.  The little rabbit is off Everyday Paper Dolls and the grass is off Winnie the Pooh.  I think my mojo might be returning.  Woo Hoo.

Here is a close up of one.  I tried to get a good one but my camera had other ideas and would work right.
There is a white bunny in there behind the grass.  ( you cant see it very well).

I have also decided to enter this in  with My Sheri Crafts and all you need is bunnies.

Thanks for looking.

Rhonda's Easter Blog Hop.

Welcome to Rhondas blog hop.  If you have come from Minta Creations you are in the right spot if you would like to start at the beginning then click here

i finally made it.  Sorry about the delay in posting.  I am from Australia and forgot about the time difference.  lol.  The beautiful work that everyone has done is fantastic.  So many great ideas out there.  This is my creation for the hop.  I have used, what I think are, pretty common cricut cartridges. 

My cricut cartridges are very limited  so most of my have been done from what I call essential cartridges because they have heaps to offer.  The rabbit is from everyday paper dolls.  The prefect fit for an easter bunny.  It has been ink around the sides with  rose pink distressing ink.  The grass has also been inked with pine needles.  I love my distressing ink at the moment it is awesome stuff.

The basket is from Tags and Bags.  I think it is the nut cup one.  It is on my gypsy so I dont have the book for it. The easter eggs are some stickers that I had in my stash.  They are the same ones I used for my handle as well.

Thanks for looking and thanking again Rhonda for letting me join in on the fun.  Hope everyone has enough time before easter to make some of the exciting projects.  Keep well.
