Fun Stuff RESQ38

Today we have a new hostess on RESQ-Challenge #38...Taylor Usry (stagcva from SCS)! Her challenge was to use eggs (while she cooks her own little egg a few more weeks!)...
I made this little weaved basket and cut out some eggs for it form patterned paper. The one problem I had was that I didn't have a stamp the said HAPPY EASTER! Go figure!

recipe: stamps- Papertrey Ink Scattered Showers
paper- close to cocoa, kraft, rustic cream, assorted patterned paper scraps
ink- black, close to cocoa
accessories- gold brad

This next one is for the Free For All Challenge on SCS today...we were to be inspired by the Great White Way and our favorite broadway shows....Since I took my DD to see Bye Bye Birdie in January I have been hearing her singing "BYE BYE BIIIIIRRRDDDIIEEE" all the time! I was inspired by the color blocked squares on the stage for the scene when all the teenagers are on the phone spreading the gossip!

recipe: stamps- NONE
paper- assorted scraps, black, white
accessories- black chopboard letters, fikars bird punch, versamark, white EP, ribbon

Thanks for stopping by today!
