Hope you had a joyous Easter. . .

I feel like I spent the entire weekend cooking - and I loved it!  I fixed Mandarin Chicken Salad for the potluck at our church Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday (and painted about a million Angry Birds on little one's faces.  Thank you to the sweet little girl who asked for a Peace Sign!).  Then on Sunday we hosted dear friends and Jared's sister.  I tried a new crock-pot macaroni and cheese recipe.  It tasted great, but I decided to call it "cheesy breakfast casserole" as the eggs ended up cooking.  Don't you love little surprises?

I also wanted to share with you my egg project for Ranger, in case you didn't see it here.  They only had room for one photo over there, so you can see more details below.

I took wooden eggs and painted one with my Malted Milk Paint and decoupaged the other with strips of vintage ledger paper.  I then used my Stick Candy, Cough Syrup and Lemon Drops Re-Inkers to make mists, and colored a half sheet of my JBS Stamp Perforated Paper.  Once that was dry, I punched out butterflies using the Jenni's Butterfly Fiskars Punch and added it them to the eggs with a few embellishments. Hope you enjoy! 

Pin It!

Oh those are adorable. I love the color of them. I have a couple paper mache eggs left I need to do up a couple of these and put away for next year. And I love the egg holder they were in too. Now I need to find me a couple of those too....Thanks for sharing.
