Easter Egg Garland Swap

How fun is this!!!! A few months ago I stumbled upon a blog, Artrageous Afternoon, and saw some wonderful, bright, colorful artwork. At the time, she was also hosting a very cool Dress Swap. Well, after her Dress Swap she started an Easter Egg swap and I was in! She emailed me a template, and all I had to do was create 5 Easter Eggs! She will take all the eggs and create garlands for all the participants later in March.

Wish I had better pictures (sorry!!). I will be sure to post a picture of the full garland when I get it before Easter!

Here are the details: The paper is my fav of late, American Crafts Moda Bella. The Build a Prima is actually a set of primas I got on clearance a few months ago (what a steal...I have enough Primas to last me ten years!) and the jewel brads came with the kit! Ribbon? $1 from Michaels! and the little birds are from Unity Stamps! I colored the birds with my Tria markers, and spritzed them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Silver Bells).

So that is what I spent my Sunday doing, along with laundry and a long walk in the beautiful sunshine! But Monday will soon be here; ugh....but I am so lucky to have a job in this economy....no complaints!!

stamps: Unity Stamp
paper: American Crafts
Embellishments: Prima Flowers and Brads, Michaels Ribbon, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Silver Bells)
