Just Us Girls...Happy Easter!!!


Good Morning Ladies!
Once again it's Saturday and time for another challenge over at Just Us Girls.  This week our hostest with the mostest is Kristin and she is challenging us to create a template with a spring theme!  I was feeling very creative and decided that I wanted to "create" my own template.  So this is what I came up with... an Easter basket and matching card!  I hope spring has arrived in your neck of the woods and you feel inspired to join us this week!  Can't wait to stop by your blogs for a little breathe of spring!  Aaaaah!  I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend with your families!

I even took the time to write down my measurements for cutting and scoring this template and then threw them out with my scraps when I was done!!!  Grrrrrr!!!

Supplies; 1 piece of  12x12 yellow paper (for basket), PTI's paper pack-Egg Hunt, PTI-scallop die, Stampin' Up-Chick, PTI-sentiment, MS-grass punch, PTI-white cardstock, Spellbinder dies.

***Stop by the rest of the JUGS blogs for more inspiration***
