This week's challenge over at BBTB2 has been set by our lovely leader Susan. Susan asked us to use an egg from any cricut cartridge to create a project.

For my project I made this cute little easter basket which I filled with mini eggs although after photographing it my son and I tucked in so now it's empty lol!

I used the following cartridges:
Eggs are from Straight from the Nest egg border cut base cut and layer cut at 1"
Easter cut from Designers Calender at 1"
Basket from Spring Cottage cut at & 7 1/4"

After adhering my basket together I decided to weave some lemon and lime stripey ribbon through as there are slits already  cut  for this basket, added the easter cut and pop dotted the base border and layers of eggs before attatching them around the edges of my basket.  Finally I added some pink tuille inside the basket like a little nest to lay the eggs on.

Please pop over to BBTB2 and see the gorgeous projects created by the Design team this week and please join in with us, you can use any egg from any cartridge!

Thanks so  much for visiting
