Easter treats

Hey everyone!
Are you enjoying your Saturday?  Hope so, I think I'm going to have a craft session with one of my friends today, but we'll see how it goes.  Hope you get to do something fun today even if it's just lounging around.

I walked in to Michael's the other day with a purpose in mind to buy some navy blue cs.  Just navy cs!  Well of course the first thing I see when I walk in are these really cute containers that look like miniature paint cans.  They were clear and had an Easter theme to them.  Dude!  They were sooo cute I had to get them.  Yes had to!  hahaha!  I thought it would look so cute with some of the Easter themed candies & jelly beans and possibly a really cute image & some pretty ribbons attached.  Definitely not a lot of work at all.  So there I go buying a dozen of these.  I knew the perfect image that would not take me too long to color and went to work on them when I got home.

Here's how I altered (a little bit) for my co-workers with a little help from a cute bunny named, Daba.



I went to Target and found some Reese's pieces that were egg shaped and pastel colored & jelly beans.  At the end I was running out of time so I only colored parts of Daba, from Sister Stamps, and left him mostly white.  I made 14 total and gave them to my co-workers who were really surprised and happy too.  What a wonderful find and such a nice little gift especially with a cute image and some pretty ribbon.


Before I go I wanted to congratulate Mary J, you are the random winner of my 500th post!  Please shoot me an email, quikhonu34(at)yahoo(dot)com, with your snail mail and I'll get your RAK in the mail this week.  Thanks everyone for participating and for the lovely comments!!

Well I hope you all enjoyed my share. Happy Easter to all and blessings to you and your families!  Mahalo for stopping by today!!
O!! And yes I did find the navy cs I originally went in there for!  hahaha!!

Hugs,
Leanne
