Easter Pressies for Teachers

I decided that I really should start all the Easter things that I need to do, I want to make Easter pressies for all the children in both Liberty and Aedyn's classes, Aedyn needs an Easter bonnet and between them they have seven teachers - school, Kindy and daycare - so needed to make a start. I was also motivated by the Just Add Ink blog, when their challenge this week was all things Easter.

It also seemed like a good idea to play with more new toys from the upcoming Mini, this time my Big Shot came out to play. I placed such a big pre-order (!) that with my Hostess dollars, I was able to order the Pillow Box die as a freebie, and I love it. It creates these cute little boxes in a matter of seconds and aren't they gorgeous? Especially coupled with the very cute chick from the 'A Good Egg' set, I love pink and green together so was very happy with how these turned out. They'll be even better once they're filled with chocolate.
