It's Easter Blog Hop

Welcome to the “It’s Easter” Blog Hop to help you get ready for this wonderful Easter season. I am very excited to be a part of this blog with many talented crafters.  A big thanks to Shawnee for setting up this Blog Hop and for providing the overall Blog Candy. To be eligible for Shawnee's  blog candy you MUST visit each blog and leave a comment  in support of each crafter and the time they have put into their work. For my personal blog candy you will need to be one of my followers (because I love followers) and leave a comment (because I love comments even more). If you write a comment each day you will have 4 chances.  I will draw the winner using on the morning of April 11th.  
This hop runs from April 7th - 10th, so you have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop. Check out each blog and see what each blog has to offer for BLOG CANDY! Come back all 4 days to see some new projects, tutorials, and more.Tell your friends about the hop.

Each day of the Blog Hop I will be posting a crafty project as well as an Easter card.

Day 1 April 7, 2011
Easter bucket- This is the first time I have made one of these cute little buckets.  I will definitely do this again.  I used the Easter 2010 cart for all the cuts.  I cut a paper to fit the size of my bucket and then decorated it all around.  I then made a mini banner and attached it with strong tape to the inside of the bucket and the other end to the lid.  You can fill the bucket with candy or little goodies and place the banner neatly on top.  When the lid is opened it will pull the banner out to reveal the goodies inside. 

Shape card- this was a card I made last year that reminds me of the sugar egg look.  Cuts 
from Easter 2010 cart and the butterflies are from a MS punch.  
Hope you enjoyed todays project and come back tomorrow to see my Easter tree and another card.  
If you have started here at Cricutcraftingrammy you can go to the beginning HERE and hop along with us. 
Your next  crafty idea comes from the talented  Patricia at

  18. Wow, I'm glad I stopped back! I started the Hop too early, I think and some posts weren't yet up. Your pail is terrific ... what a great idea. I'll have to "lift" it because I don't want another basket around -- pails are useful afterwards, don't you think?
