Whimsical Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Whimsical Wednesday Grand Opening Blog Hop! We are glad you could join us! You should have arrived from Gigi's. If you're just stopping by and would like to join in on the fun, you can start at the beginning by clicking here.

A collegue at work wanted something unique as a way to say 'thank you' to her child's teachers, and after playing around with the design for a while, this is what I came up with....a Spring-themed, strawberry-filled basket. The best part?! It's filled with Hershey Kisses! These turned out so cute, and she loved them so much, that she decided to show them off at school. Needless to say, I've been taking orders for a week and a half, and have already sold more than 10 for Easter....


Recipe:
TBBM - box cut @ 3.1
*Sized down to 1" sides
My Community - fence cut @ 4.25"
MS All Occasions Cake - grass border cut @ 2.75"
Mini Monograms - tag border cut @ 3.43
George - tag rectangle cut @2.94"
Paisley - tag strawberry cut @ 1.24"
Wild Card- "You are special" cut @ 6.78"
Makin' the Grade - "BERRY"cut @ .49"

Strawberries instructions can be found here. I know there's also a Gypsy file going around on the MB that I will be glad to share if you e-mail me at txscrappermom@hotmail.com

Please be sure to visit all the blogs in the hop to see what the talented Design Team has in store for you! There is also such fun grand prizes sponsored by The Kraft Outlet and Prairie Bird Boutique, you won't want to miss out!

Thanks for stopping by! Your next stop is Amber
