 Hello everyone,

That fortnight flew by and time for another challenge over at As You Like It  and this time the theme is..

" Your favourite Easter Critter and why?" 

Our sponsor is " Last Minute Manda"

and the DT were given such adorable and fun images to play with.. [thank you]
So, I used them all..I LOVE Bunnies and owned many in my years, all fluffy with floppy ears and twitchy noses, what is not to love..

and made a wee book...

My friend Annie sent me a Gelatos kit a long time ago and this " Album" was part of so decided to use that for this project and I had a ball..

This is showing my carrot,,open her up, and you have a bag..
how fun, a free gift from the supermarket.

Dir cutting eggs...and adding Rabbit number one.

Making my background scenes with die cuts...

Building and sorting out my pages, bunny and golden egg, which got every gem one at a time glued on!! my drop in cat who sprawled all over the place and finished golden egg with bunny..

I coloured the sentiment for the title of my book,, 
coloured and die cut all my critters..coloured a fussy cut the multiple carrots..
and made a carrot mound..

My gem encrusted golden egg, branches and birds and my little snail, he is too cute to just pop in places where you probably have never seen him,  but he has been there..

Okat, that is all the small pictures, now I will share page by page.

The cover..

My favourite critter for Easter is Bunny rabbits..
and these little guys decided they were going to the carrot patch for their fun hunt..

This little bunny was not sure which way to go, but by the look of that giant carrot he chose the carrot patch..

Giant eggs hidden in the grass along the roadside and this Bunny
scooting along with her chicken friends..

Where to go, what to do, even the bunny in his truck was racing to get his share..

Oh, my, chocolate egg heaven..

And the sparkly prize at the end..

and the little book standing up..very thick canvas pages..

So come on over and join us with your favourite Easter Critter..

So there we go, was a very busy few days, but I had an absolute ball making this book..
Thank you so much for stopping by,

I'll see you over the weekend..

My goodness, Chrissy! The owner of this company must have been "over the moon with delight" at your darling creation! Wouldn't it be fun to make children's books? I cannot say enough other than you have produced smiles, happy giggles, and lots of good-vibes by looking through your photos. LOVE EVERY LITTLE DETAIL! (you are welcome for the sentiments - thanks mentioning it).

Sometimes it's good to be a bit late. I'm delighted Valerie suggested you share these bunnies with us at AJJ. I agree that bunnies are absolutely adorable and your little book proves it. Their floppy ears, their inquisitive nature, and their fun poses all prove how adorable they are. This bunny book is ideal for Valerie's theme at Art Journal Journey. Thanks for sharing it.
