Creative Inspirations #57 Easter DT project

Good Morning,  Hope you are all having a super dooper weekend.  It's time for another bi-weekly challenge over at

This week it's the lovely Cheryl who has chosen our theme and she would like to see all your
Easter Creations.  

 I chose to alter a rather large "empty" box of Black Magic Dark Chocolates - my dear hubby's favourites, long since eaten!!!!   It was too large for my 6 x 6 project so I tore it apart and re sized it to suit my needs using my Hougie score board.  Quite easy if you cut off the tail end of the box and follow the markings.   I covered it in papermania Summer Bloom paper and added some lovely ribbon from

The background cloud paper is from DCWV and the bottom is just chalked to give it pasture look.  My digital image of the tree and flowers I won from Di's Digis, coloured with pro markers and cut out to give a 3d effect.  I then used my newest Tilda stamp from the Easter 2011 collection, coloured with pro markers. Assembled the easel card and popped it on top of the box.  Inside I've put some chocolate chip cookies ( just for this picture)  I'm giving this to my Grandaughter but there will be something a bit more special inside for her.  The sentiment was a freebie from Bizzy Becs (thank you). 

We have two amazing Sponsors this fortnight.

Simon Says Stamps are giving the lucky winner a $10.00 gift voucher to spend in store, believe me when you get over there you will want to spend a little more.  They carry everything and a little more.


Our next Super Sponsor is the Wonderful Whiff of Joy who are giving our winner one of their super stamps to play with (love WOJ images) they are so unique.


Someone is going to be so lucky this fortnight.  Wish I could join in. lol.

Do please pop over to the Creative Inspirations Blog and take a peek at the amazing creation my sweet friends on the DT have made for you this week.  Absolutely outstanding work from the girls.
