Well good morning to you all and here in the the UK the weather is gorgeous and suppose to stay that way(hopefully!)My mum`s in Spain and she said she wished she had taken a coat and it was raining!
Ok today i want to show you something i did for Sam to give to his Teacher and 1 for the teaching assistant.That one i`ll save for tomorrow.

I got the idea from other people doing them to put tea-lights in the box.So i just worked out the measurements to fit the bunny and egg and there you have it.I didn`t really know what to put in the little space to the left of the box,so put a small bunch of flowers from wild orchid craft and a butterfly from a Marianne creatables die.Papers are back to basics from Dovecraft.The flourishes are also Marianne C.
Image is of course Magnolia,coloured with promarkers.I also added glitter to the tulips but you can`t tell on this photo.

Thought i`d leave you with a quick snap of Maddie.This was when she was only 5weeks old,bless her.I`ve still tried to upload the picture from yesterdays post but still no luck.Is it just me or does anyone else have that trouble?For those who don`t know what i`m going on about,i took a picture uploaded it to my pictures in the computer.Because i turned the camera round the photo  was in the gallery on it`s side.So i turned it to the right angle which it saved + now always shows the right way,but when i try to load it on my blog it always comes through on it`s side.Highly annoying considering the first photo i put on there worked just fine!
I`ll figure it out when she`s probably reached a year!
Never mind have a good day.
Hugs Kelly.

What a clever idea to use the box that normally holds candles for Easter treats! I'm sure Sam's teacher will be delighted with the beautiful Tilda picture and the yummy goodies and pretty inside of the card. Thank you for playing along with us at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge this week. Hugs, Lesley

Gorgeous card, such a clever idea to tuck Easter candy in there!
On the photo - I've had that problem before... I usually just have to wait a bit to get it to rotate properly - it will show up right in iPhoto, but then not when I upload it.. so I shut down iPhoto, wait 5 minutes or so, then try again... eventually it uploads right side up! Hope that helps - at least you know you're not alone!
Thanks so much for joining us at Stamptacular Sunday this week!
