Zing Into Spring!

Hello blog land :) - Its nice to be back.  I have been so busy over the last couple of months getting ready for a Spring Fayre to raise funds for our local school.  The school kindly asked me to have a stall to sell my cards and crafty things.  It was a successful day and I made over £100 which was not bad for my first Fair!!  However, as a result of getting organised for the fair it did not leave me much time to do anything else - hence the lack of bloggage!  But I am here to change that and I will be a regular blogger again - promise :)

To celebrate my return I have made this for the Get Funky - Zing into Spring blog challange:

As you can see it is an easter sweetie bag filled with scrummy Cadbury Mini Eggs - delish.  It was a very quick and simple make - kids are on their easter holidays so I did not want to spend the whole day crafting and neglecting them - however, I think I just might cut out a few more of these and get them to decorate them on this wet afternoon :)  The papers are taken from Funky Hand Colour Me Happy craft CD.
Well I better go and get my ankle biters fed and watered - hopefully will be back soon!  TTFN Vx


  1. Congratulations on the success of your first craft fair! I love your egg can't get more zingy than with a bit of chocolate! Thanks for joining in with this months Get Funky Challenge.
