Happy Easter - C4C #83

Yippee! It's the weekend!! And since it's Saturday, it's Crazy 4 Challenges time! Silke Kittmann, our hostess this month, has another fun challenge for us all. And being as how it's the third Saturday of the month, this week's challenge is a sponsored challenge. This month our sponsor is Krisi's Kreations. Krisi's store sells templates which are available in a number of different formats, including PSD, TIFF, PNG, PDF and SVG.

With Easter just around the corner Silke has challenged us to create an Easter Gift .... make a basket, a box or whatever you wish.

I chose this sweet little back pack for my project. I totally fell in love with it the minute I saw it and it was every bit as much fun to put together as I thought it would be!  

I decorated it up with some MFT Die-namics dies and made a matching card using Pure Innocence - My Basket Of Eggs. The back pack is perfect for some sweet little treats or a gift card. I cut this with my Cricut and I'm thinking it could be made larger and the front pocket would be big enough for a gift card with more room for a sweet treat in the main section. Either way, it's a winner in my book! I used Basic Grey magnets to hold the two flaps down and ribbon for the handles. It's just so SWEET!

Here's a close up of the back pack.

 The card...

 And the inside of the card...

 Here are the Copic markers I used.

OK, this is already a long post so I'm going to stop. Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
