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.
