Hi, just one more creation for Easter and had to take a pic before I gave it away and ofcourse it had to go on my blog too! Hope everyone is enjoying the gorgeous weather, it seems Summer is already here...and before this Cadburys chocolate egg melts with all this heat I'll tell you I recycled a box to make a template for a little boy treat, paper from Crafters Companion Summer stories CD (used 2 A4 sheets to make this, but there's lots left over around the edges), pre-coloured digi image from The Creative Cottage Wild West Monkeys kit, fab images in there for males, made an oval to place some acetate, stars punched with a mini punch, sentiment from Studio G mini stamp.



A girl treat (scroll two posts down) and a boy treat together!

My recycled box template.

Challenges entered are Cards for Men 'easter' as are Sweet Stampin and Crazy 4, One Stop Craft 'chocolate inspired', Bunny Zoes Crafts Monthly # 'one for the boys', Creative Inspirations 'pets and animals', MAWTT 'recycle' and The Creative Cottage April # ' to use any of their products'. I'm off for a couple of days to spend with family, wishing you all a very Happy Easter.
