Finding Springtime.....

When spring seems like it will never come.....bring the springtime to you!!
This springtime set is for a little crop get-together with friends, to chase
away those waiting for spring blues!! This is also my entry into the contest
over at the REMINISCE BLOG for a "party" project! What says party like
a hoppin' crop!! I used one of their rockin' Easter collections....with their
gorgeous shimmer paper....make sure you click on the pic to see the bigger

I used the Reminisce papers, the sticker (the little chick, with my "just us"
added), the eggs cut from some of the paper, and the "grass" is also one of

Yep, my little chick and bunny cups are full of springtime M&M's.....yum!

And wondering where I got the cute little clear lidded cups?? In my ever
growing stash of "items to alter".....I have been collecting the little "dolcini"
cups from Olive Garden!! Yep, get those little desserts "to go" and they
come in these sweet little cups just ready to alter up and fill up!! And FYI
the little bucket I altered....yep, another Target dollar bin find!

Enjoy this little "breath of springtime" set.....think about all the options for
altering those little cups!! And make sure to hop on over to check out the
REMINISCE BLOG! If you aren't familiar with their awesome papers and'll soon find out what you've been missing!!
