Easter Basket

Hi Everyone,

Well I hope your all having a good week. I have been really looking forward to loading my Easter Basket for the Just Magnolia challenge this week, but was really disappointed with my pictures as they really don't show off how beautiful this basket is and the detail that went into it. This is a weaved basket, tutorial is on the Just Magnolia blog  I have found this challenge really rewarding and am sooooooooooooo glad I attempted it.......and no, not just because I filled it with Mini Eggs.... well actually a little, but don't tell as I promised them to my Son. Any way, here it is:-

I have used the following materials:-

Pink Paislee Papers
Magnolia Stamps
Distress inks:- Tattered Rose, Frayed Burlap, Antique Linen, Worn Lipstick, Broken China
Liquid Pearls
Martha Stewart Punch
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the larger pink dahlia type were a bargain from the 99p Shop
Oval Nestabilities
Ribbon from Stash

This last photo was taken by a collageue of mine at work, he'll have some more tomorrow so hopefully you will be able to see the detail better.

I am entering this basket into the following challenges:-
* Kaboodledoodles (spots and stripes)

Hugs for now, Tracy x
