Happy Saturday everyone!! This week over at Our Creative Corner is to create a Spring/Easter card or project. Since I have been SO busy with the Easter digi release for Stamps and Smiles, I thought I would share a slide show of all of the samples I created during the release week. I am also including two of my favorite songs from my favorite band A-Ha!! I will be leaving in early May to see them in NYC and I can not wait!!!
Enjoy Shadowside & Foot of the Mountain. These two songs can be found on A-Ha's NEW cd called Foot of the Mountain.
Have a fun weekend and don't forget to stop by Our Creative Corner to see the other wonderful samples by the Design Team!

Update: Stamps and Smiles Blog Hop ended at 9:00 PM CST. Thanks for stopping by. Here is a project tutorial I created using the image Sweet Bunny of Mine. There are endless ideas for this image, I hope I can get them created before Easter is here!! Thanks for joining us on the Blog Hop ~ enjoy the tutorial.
I bought the NEW cutter by Martha Stewart!! I LOVE it and so will you if you, especially if you are a lefty!!
I forgot to take a picture when I punched out the handle. Feel free to use your favorite punch. I used the word window punch by SU but you could use a circle punch, Nestabilities or even a fun shape punch.
Add adhesive to the boxes and add the handle piece in the middle. The sky is the limit, I think the fun part of the tutorial is how I added the bunny. Enjoy and I can't wait to see your samples using this fun tutorial!

This NEW image by Stamps and Smiles is called Hoppy Easter. The paper on my card is from SU. The image was printed out on white cardstock and colored up using my Copics. I followed today's sketch challenge over at Our Creative Corner Sketch Blog. For my layout, I turned the sketch and added paper buttons using my button sizzlet by Sizzix.
As you can see by the close up, I layered the egg and added brads for the buttons on his outfit. I thought maybe the image I used on Tuesday - Sweet Bunny of Mine was my favorite, but... I think they all are!
Here is a project I created using the diaper fold technique. I had planned on making this project but when I looked for the candy that was going to be added, it was missing! One of my kids must of eaten it so I had to stuff my project with Reese's peanut butter eggs - grrrr!!
Before I go, I would like thank you for your sweet comments about Hannah's leprechaun project. Sadly, none of the kids caught the leprechaun but he left some candy for the kids - YEA! Have a fun day and don't forget to visit the Stamps and Smiles Blog to see the wonderful samples by the Design Team! See you tomorrow with a fun tutorial and the Stamps and Smiles Blog Hop - 8 PM CST.

Main dome, the last month or two they have the trains running through the main flower dome.
Here is Hannah & Jake, not much to touch in the desert dome because its filled with a ton of cactus plants, however this plant was ok to touch.
