Easter Eggstravaganza Blog Hop

Welcome to my Blog and the Easter Eggstravaganza Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Kacee - , you're in the right place. If you were just looking at my blog and want to play along with our blog hopping fun, you can start at the beginning at This blog hop is all about creating something sweet for your Easter celebrations. We hope you find inspirations and plenty of ideas to spice up your holiday :)

Anyone that knows me knows that I am not a baker or cook of any sort for that matter so..... a paper cupcake it is. I kept the colours very Easter like (there was supposed to be more Easter themed stuff for this post but well... more on that later), although with this sentiment it could really be used for all sorts of things. Most was done with my craft robo cutter (exceptions of the sentiment - Gina K. Designs, and the punched border - Fiskars oh and the image was coloured in with my memento markers although the image itself was drawn with my craft robo sketch pen). The designs are not my originals but are from the Silhouette online store .

I have to tell you though that I did TRY to bake real cupcakes with my 2 year old this week for the hop.... but they didn't "puff" up properly (probably because he kept eating the batter so they weren't as full as they should've been to begin with LOL) and then we tried a batch of cookies.... but we had a potty emergency and they got just a little too close to burnt for me to want to take a picture and post. The cupcakes were going to be those really cute ones with the little nests on top made of aero bar pieces and mini eggs.

We also decorated some real eggs that I was going to place around the project as decoration however.... well... lets just say I didn't think smashed egg shells in different colours would have the same effect! Also, my DH had a nail bounce through the side of the pieces of wood he was nailing together for our new linen closet he's making and through 1 finger into the bone of the next so after a full day in emerg having xrays taken and then having them yank it out and what have you I just didn't have time to make new ones to replace the smashed egg shells with.  He is just fine by the way although his pride is very hurt and he's mad at himself more than anything. He was determined to finish the project this weekend and now will not be using his hand at all this weekend.

Well.. that's enough babble from me.... here's my project: (make sure you check out ALL the stops on the hop... you might find some candy along the way )

 Here's one of the cupcake out of the wrapper.
