Easter project

The other day while grocery shopping I found this beautiful big Easteregg. Unfortunately it was packed in the standard big ugly plasic box. Then I had this idea that I could alter the box...
I cut away the front and covered it all with Graphics 45 Once Upon A Springtime paper. I have a set of matching stamps (Hero Arts if my memory serves me correctly). The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Below are photos of the front, back and sides with and without egg in it. Good old girly crafting fun....

  5. I wouldn't want to give that box away, they can just have the egg! I must have taken an age. I think it's just fantastic.
    By the way, if you nip over to my blog and look at my Butterfly Girl, you'll see I have used one of your beautiful backgrounds.
    Thank you so much Astrid. xx

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
