Blue and Cheerful, that is what its all about for this hop!  
For my project I had Easter in mind.   I lifted this idea from another blogger , I so wish I could remember who it was  (boy I hate when that happens), Thank you to the mystery blogger !!!
I like to put together baskets for our 3 little grandsons and this was perfect.  I also got a red and orange bucket so they each will get their very own (Grandma don't want no fighting).   The bucket comes with a shovel  and I also plan on filling it with some other goodies.
The  carts  used were :.
  EveryDay Paper Dolls - Bunny  6in
  Create a Critter  -  Sun   2in
   Easter solutions  -  Eggs 1in  & Saying  2.5 in.
    Plantin Schoolbook -  Grass  2in.
Other product-  Peachy Keen Funshine Faces
                         DCWV cardstock - adhesive back
                         baby blue bakers twine
                         blue ribbon from my stash
                         white vinyl

I also have some candy to giveaway!! All you need to do is leave a comment  and a way to get a hold of you if you win.
I sure hope you've liked what you've seen so far, its time now to move on to the next  stop, which happens to be Wendy.

Thanks for stopping!!

  23. Darling little bunny Easter pal. I love how you get a double use out of this, to hold the Easter goodies and then to use the bucket afterwards. Great idea.
