Easter Eggstravaganza

Started playing around with my Gecko Galz sheets and just had to make this panoramic egg. It reminds me of large sugar eggs that I had as a kid. As an  adult, I made them with my mom too and sold them at work! We made about 30 different  5" eggs in all pastel colors and piped flowers, bunnies and ribbons on them. They even had a little sugar scenes inside too. They were so cute. In honor of my mom, I am dedicated this egg to her memory.

You can see this paper egg and other Gecko Galz Design Team Totally Spring projects for some inspiration here.  So back to my project, I painted one half of an egg  baby pink outside and pale yellow inside. I printed out the little bunnies and fussy cut them out using the Bunny Trails sheet. All were painted then detailed with Stickles and tiny rhinestones. I love their little necklaces. I added the curtain image and then real tulle curtains with pink tie backs. Added some paper grass and some foil doilie fans on top and bottom to hold the egg up came next.

Hope you will have an eggstraordinary week.
fondly, gerri
