Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all have a great Easter and be safe if traveling. We dyed Easter eggs last night and my girls had a blast even though they are 8, 11 and 13. Now we are going to bake Easter cookies and wait for more family to arrive so we can have our annual Easter Egg Hunt and then Easter dinner.

Easter Treat Boxes

 Well my daughter who is in 2nd grade brought home a note at last minute saying they would be having an Easter Party Thursday which was only 2 days notice.  We agreed we would only send chips & dip then this morning on our way to school she decided that she needed treat bags for her party too. I had nothing at home so I decided to put my Silhouette Cameo to use finally. I made 22 small treat boxes for her class and 1 big treat box for the teacher.  And believe it or not it only took me 1 hour to cut them all out, add noses, ink them and fill them with goodies. When I took them to the class this evening the kids and teacher
loved them and my daughter was so proud;  she kept saying "My mom made these for me"!

I am so proud of my last minute chick treat boxes. I purchased the file from Silhouette Store and it was so easy to cut and put together. I am really loving my Cameo and can't wait to use it again.
