Easter Bunny Boxes and my SU! stall at the Stirling East Country Fair

Better late then never, here we are the post about the school fair……

I think I’m getting obsessed by Easter Bunnies!  I’ve never been so in to Easter before…. don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the chocolate but now I’m totally in love with the Bunnies too!! Here are some Bunny Baskets I made using the Fancy Favour Bigz Die. I copied a variety of different bunnies I’ve seen on line to come up with these and then used the tools I had to make it work. I think I’ve used every punch I own. I’ve even made my own grass filling as a bed for some yummy chocolate Easter eggs. I’m doing my best to not eat them.

I’ve you’ve been reading my blog you’ll know that I’ve been busy preparing for my first Stampin’ Up! stall at our school’s fair. Myself and two of my downlines from my Midnight Inklings Team (Natalie Ewart who is also a mum at the school and Lynne Jones who lives in just up the road from the school) joined with me to make it all possible.

Here we are bright and early preparing the stall. Take a look at the black sign hanging at the back… this was inspired by a similar design from the talented Madonna Dunn and her team Mad Inkstincts.  Thanks for the inspiration Mads!

Here I am looking very ‘librarian’ with my glasses on…. oh dear. But a necessary evil I’m afraid. It’s all starting to come together.

Awe…. pinwheels…… so cute. And yes the ARE very good at catching the wind. We were running after them all afternoon. LOL. Can you see my butterflies peaking out from behind? I created this in just a few hours with our wonderful Big Shot die cutting machine and the Beautiful Butterfly Die. Each butterfly pair shows one of the Stampin’ Up! range of colours. It’s really beautiful to see them all together.

A few of my Bunny boxes, some Post -it note key chains, Lego bag tags and even some Button rings.

Meet Nat, myself and Lynne. Aren’t we all looking snazzy in our official Stampin’ Up! aprons?

This the finished product. We’re all set up and looking forward to the customers.

It was such a beautiful day last Sunday and the Fair Committee did an amazing job. The school had around 2000 visitors to the fair and the girls and I really enjoyed meeting so many of them. We had a really fun day. So nice sharing what we love to do with all of our school friends and the local community.

This is a photo of my husband Chris on the ‘throw a wet sponge at the teacher’ stall… along with a very game student. Chris is the Assistant Principal at the school and there was no shortage of students and even the Principal that wanted to throw a wet sponge at him. He was a good sport and stayed on the stall long.

Our eldest son Finn very much enjoyed throwing a sponge at Dad.

Last but not ever least our second born son Macauley (Cauley) as Dracula ….. if we’re going to go vampires I’m more of an Edward girl, but at least he’s on the right track!

Now… I’m off to prepare for this weeks class.

Two reminders to leave you with  …. this is the last week for Sale-A-Bration so get your orders into me ASAP and if you’re interested in attending class this week,  I have places available in the evening but the morning is full.

Happy Stamping,

x Carolyn
