Easter Eggs

Before we tell you about our new challenge, we must say a BIG goodbye to Kerry. This will be her last project for us. She started Cuttlebug Mania with Jannie, but is moving on to pastures new with her husband and starting a new life in France. We wish her all the best for the future.

There are so many images that come to mind when we think of Easter, the Easter bunny, chocolate, the cross, cute little chicks and of course the Easter egg. 

Please create for us an Easter project which must feature an egg.

Please ensure you have read what is required below.
