Eggcellent Easter

We have an Easter challenge for you at AiFactory Challenges this week.You have until Wednesday 13th April  11.59 to upload your project.Stop by the challenge site to check out full details.Don’t forget to take a look at the wonderful DT creations while you’re there!

For my project I’ve used Merry Little Egg Heads Digital Stamps.These have got to be just the cutest eggs ever!I can think of soooo many uses for them too.There are 8 in the set and I’ve managed to use 7 in my project.Feel a bit mean leaving one out but I just couldn’t think where else I could fitted him in!I have to confess the design isn’t my own.I got the inspiration from here and the tutorial from a very talented young lady,Heidi-Mari.Although I measured in imperial rather than metric.It still fun to make tho’!

Here are some more views:

This is the reverse side of the sticky thing in the middle.Not sure what the real name would be for this!

This is the tag I made.It comes plain.I added the text.

These are pics of all the eggs around the sides.I coloured them all with Promarkers.The papers are a free download from Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine.I’ve made this for my kids.For the purposes of the photo I’ve just grabbed some sweeties out of the cupboard but I’m going to buy something more eggy and chocolatey (of course!) before I give it to them.
