The Stamp Spot Blog Hop


Hello all and welcome to the very first Stamp Spot Blog Hop! 
I am super excited about this Easter/Kids themed blog hop so why not hop along with me (excuse the pun!)  and follow the DTs' inspirational trail of creativity and fun.

This weekend, we'd love to share with you some inspiration for this months craft challenge (kids) , and also a chance to win some awesome prizes! At each stop along the way, read the post carefully, as each blog will have a fun question for you to answer (mine is at the bottom of this post!).  Answer the question to go in the draw for the prize from each blog!

If you've come from the talented Melinda then you're on the right track, if not, head to The Stamp Spot blog, and start from the beginning!

I am not sure about you but one of my favourite foods at Easter is chocolate ... so in keeping with the themes of Easter and Kids I have made an easter treat basket ...

 and from the side ...
and a close up of the little eggs ...
These are a breeze to make - just make a little box (if you don't want to make one then maybe consider recycling one!) and then cut 2 large circles (mine are 11cm) and remove a semi circle from each to create a basket with a handle.  Decorate the front - I made little eggs hatching out of their shells, and attach the circles to the front and back of your box and most importantly fill the box with goodies!
Products used from The Stamp Spot are My Minds Eye 'a mothers love' 6x6 paper pad, white grossgrain and MFT royal leaves.

Next on the list is the lovely Cath at Do Re Mi Good luck!

Okay crafters this is it for me, but before you go answer my chosen question - What is your favourite food at Easter (apart from Chocolate!)
mmmmmmmmmmm I think mine would have to be HOT CROSS BUNS :)

What a great basket. Great idea.

My favorite is hot cross buns of any variety but the chocolate ones have to be my favorite kind of hot cross bun. Not traditional but still yummm.
