Happy Easter!

I hope you all had a good Easter. We had a glorious day here. We have a really boring garden (RAF quarter - bad grass on a big hill!!) so we've been getting lots of flowers out in pots ready for the summer. Now I just need to remember to water them!! In fact it was so warm the girls spent the afternoon running round the garden in their knickers!! A bit different from last Easter when it was snowing all day!

Instead of showing you a card today, I thought I'd share with you the things I made for Mother's Day for my Mum and Mother-in-law, as I just remembered I haven't put them on here yet.

I altered a couple of notebooks by taking the covers off, covering with patterned paper, decorating and then attaching them back on (the tricky bit).

Brown notebook: Papermania papers (CCSR Big One), Snag 'em stamp duo, coloured with pencils, faux stitching added, foam alphamini stickers from the latest DoCrafts goody bag.
Pink notebook: Papermania papers ( I think they came from the spring selection pack last year), Doodlebug alphabet stickers, Papermania stickers, Ribbon - can't remember!!
I also made a couple of triangular parcels with chocolates in. They were made from a rectange of paper sealed at the short end with double sided tape. One end of the tube was also stuck with tape. At the other end I added eyelets with my crop-a-dile filed with sweets and then tied with ribbon or raffia.

Flowerery parcel: Vellum paper from Making Cards magazine, Butterfly sticker - Papermania from the cover of Creativity magazine, Red raffia from Tesco's!
Green parcel: Papers from CCSR Big One paper pack, Daisy sticker from the goody bag, ribbon from stash.

Thanks for looking!!
