FMS 131 / Inspired By 110

Took some time away from setting up the computer to play with a few challenges. What a pain it is to switch everything from one pc to another and then have to learn a new operating system! What were we thinking switching all three over within a week??? We must be "nuts" lol  But it is getting done.

used a cute little bunny from my hoarded EAD stash to make an Easter card. i am not good with "random" as you can see in the enamel dots! little buggers stick too fast to move around! lol

Thanks for stopping by.

I pulled out some forgotten paper (there is a ton of paper "hiding" in my closet! lol )and some EAD stickerz for this sweet little treat bag. Have not filled it with candy yet as I would have opened it and eaten it before giving it away!!  

Here are the awesome BellaCreationz items I have used.
