Egg-quisite & Give Away Day Details...

I've been feeling eggy...you know the need to take a poor defenseless egg and give it a make-over...glam it up a bit...but I (in this house, which holds just slightly less "craftiness" than Michael's) had no eggs! How could this be???!!! Let the scrounging begin!
And after a bit I came across these, sparkly eggs...I have no memory of where they even came from...

This sparkly stuff was TOO sparkly...and a bit pokey too...it had to go...I scrubbed it off with a dish scrubber...it worked! I was left with perfectly pink eggs (which I forgot to takes pictures of!)

I added the sugary sparkles to one and musically decoupaged the other...

and I have to confess, using a brush for the laminate was a pain so I just squirted it all over the egg and used my hands to spread it out and smooth the paper all at once...it was messy-ish, but much easier!

It sort of had a flat side but it wasn't very stable, so I glued a shell on as a "stand"...

and a large MOP button to this one.

Let the foofing begin!!!!!

Ribbons & bows...

a bit of bling...

and a big 'ol foofy flower!
I think the Easter Bunny will be pleased.

More flowers, ribbons, crepe and a feather for good measure!

Arranged like so...

a bit of vintage "Sense & Sensibility" and more bling!

And voila! A bit less pink, but no less pretty!

I am pretty pleased with the outcome...

and on the look out for more eggs to glam up!

And if I may be so bold as to try to entice you...the PINK egg will be part of our Spring Into Easter Give Away to kick off our first Give Away Saturday March 6th. Below you can catch a few glimpses of the other treats that will be included in our give away too.

We hope you will enter our give away and link up with a give away of your own! Mr Linky will be up Friday night to get things going...hope to see you there!

Begins March 6th!!!

    I am letting everyone know--if you haven't signed up at the new blog, you need to RE-Sign up. Google doesn't let you take your followers with you. If you have already done so --sorry for mentioning it. I am going back and forth between the old and new blog plus my old and new e-mail and I can't keep it all straight. I am hoping to have the old blog finished up (moving everything) and closed down this week.
