Easter Baskets & More

Happy Sunday!  I hope everyone has had a relaxing weekend! We have some lovely guests visiting us from Norway and it has been a wonderful weekend around here!
The first project I want to share are some Easter Baskets I created using the new Teresa Collins Easter Basket Cricut Craft Room Exclusive!  This digital cart was just released this past Thursday and is one of several fabulous new carts released that have some wonderfully adorable Easter images to use for those upcoming Easter projects!  Make sure you stop by the Cricut Blog or if you are a member, the Cricut Circle Blog for more fabulous projects and inspiration.

My next project is for the latest Bo Bunny Layout Challenge posted up this past Friday.  We were to use this image as inspiration for our layout.

I loved the colors, and I immediately knew that the new Ambrosia collection would work perfectly for this. I also liked the idea of adding some black and white and therefore used a piece of patterned paper from the Enchanted collection for my background. If you look closely you can see how I was inspired to create a border piece on my layout from the gorgeous, multi-colored curtain in the photo.

If you are feeling inspired by the photo too, make sure you stop by the Bo Bunny blog and play along!  All you have to do is create a layout using the image as inspiration, some of your favorite Bo Bunny products and then link to the post using the InLinkz button!  I hope you will play along and thanks for stopping by today!
