Thinking about Easter...

Hello Everyone!
I'm so glad you've taken the time to pop by today!
Feel free to linger awhile, relax and enjoy this week's Heartfelt Creations inspiration!

As I schedule this blog post, I'm headed into a crazy busy week!
We have an ice fishing trip planned for Monday, I spend a day in Winnipeg teaching classes on Tuesday,
my dad has hip replacement surgery on Thursday, and both kids have field trips scheduled during this time and the oldest also has a youth retreat on the weekend!  Think I'm gonna take this one day at a time, and one laundry load at a time!  LOL

If you haven't started thinking Easter as of yet, you may want to give it a thought as it comes a little earlier this year....it's coming in March!  When I first saw the initial reveal of the Sunrise Lily Collection, my thoughts immediately turned to spring and the Easter season!  

For today's project I decided to do an egg shaped Easter gift box...or even a centerpiece if you would desire!

Here's how the project turned out...

  
...and a little bit more of a close up...


...and one last quick peek at the floral cluster on top of the packaging...


What could be more spring like than lilies and butterflies?

Well, that's all for me today...so sorry to have hurried you through!
I sure hope you take time to visit the Heartfelt Creations blog to take in all of the other fantastic projects the rest of the design team have come up with!
I promise you won't be disappointed!

Until next time...
