April Bunny Blog Hop!!

Hello Everyone!! Welcome to the April Bunny Blog Hop hosted by Made by Jacqueline!

First off I would like to thank Jacqueline for inviting me to be a part of this blog hop! It is my very first one ever and I am so excited!!
If you were just visiting Amber's blog then you are in the right spot. If you would like to start at the
beginning please click HERE.  You don't want to miss all the blog candy being given away!!
In honor of Easter we are all making a project with a bunny
on it! A few days ago I made a framed princess picture and I loved how it turned out. I LOVE the Kate's ABC's cart and I haven't had time to make a project with it yet so I decided I would make another framed picture. It turned out so adorable! I'm planning on giving it as a baby gift for a little girl.

- frame is 8"x10"
- base is plain kraft carstock, with a pink patterned paper cut 1/2" smaller all the way around
- pink base layer was inked with Tim Holtz distress ink
- image was cut @ 5.94" from Kate's ABCs
- grass, stroller and little girl's dress was inked with Tim Holtz ink and dress was embossed with Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder
- pearls as flower centers and buttons on stroller wheels were from dollarstore
- doodles with white Gelly Roll Pen

I took the picture out of the frame and thought I would show a close-up of the faux stitching around the outside. It adds so much when looking at it in person.
I also have some blog candy for one lucky hopper! It's an assortment of Sticko stickers and K & Company embellishments! For a chance to win I would LOVE LOVE LOVE if you become a follower (but I won't force you... :)) and leave a comment! Please also leave a way I can get ahold of you! I'll draw the winner on Tuesday!

 Next stop is Anna!! I can't wait to see what her project is!!
