HHH with BLOG CANDY!

Hi all, it's FINALLY my birthday! :)
That means blog candy for you and also a fun HHH project.
Yesterday's Hip Hop Challenges were to make something with Easter colors and something with an oval shape. I decided to combine both challenges and make this bag. I cut the bag and tag out of yellow cardstock on my new birthday cricut! Then I cut a bunch of 1 1/8 inch squares out of some adorable Easter paper I bought last year. After inking with edges with CTMH pink carnation ink I glued them onto both sides of the bag. After they dried I went back and trimmed with edges of the bag with a project knife. I used Unity's distressed dots background to ink up the side of the bag and also the purple Easter eggs. The chick and "I adore you" stamps are from Unity's December KOTM. I also used my doozie daisy stamp to give some extra interest to the grass with CTHM sweet leaf ink. HEY CHICK! is from the Unity kit of the same name. Put it all together with a few little extras like glitter glue, gem, eyelet, ribbon and it's done! :) Please go to the UNITY BLOG to see all the other wonderful HHH participants. Did I mention there is a huge SALE this weekend too?!


Now onto the Blog Candy! Since it's HHH I had to included Unity in my prize, so up for grabs is Unity's Forever Friends and three spools of super cute ribbon from Joann's. Nothing big and fancy, but it's always nice to get some happy mail. To enter for a chance to win just leave a comment telling me what you are doing today for the official START OF SPRING!

Super cute bag. Love the colors.

First day of Spring & still a bit chilly outside here in MI. So I went to bowling w/my DD.

This weekend is suppose to be mid 50's so maybe spring is making it's way to us. Excited to walk my yard & see bulbs coming up.

Enjoy your weekend...
