Magnolia-Licious Challenge DT - Photo Inspiration Challenge

Woohoo!!  Did you miss me??  I have been so stressed out and upset the last couple of weeks and just haven't been able to create at all.  Finally on Sunday I felt like a spot of crafting would relax me and managed to make a couple of projects.  I am going to be a little like a bus today - nothing and then three come at once!  This is my first project to share today, I hope you will be able to pop back later to see the other two!  It is time for another fabulous challenge at Magnolia-Licious Challenge and we have the most gorgeous photo inspiration for you all.  I decided to create a cute little Easter basket following Lena-Katrine's tutorial here, I just made mine a little smaller by missing out one of the paper strips.  Don't you love the cute little bunny too??  We bought my little girl it for her birthday and it just had to make it's way into my photo when she wasn't looking!  I have used two of the gorgeous new images from the Princes and Princesses collection on my basket.  On the front I have used Sweet Princess Tilda #299 and coloured her with copics.
On the back of the basket we have Princess Party Tilda #273 also coloured with copics.  Diana also has the mini Princes and Princesses collection and as always there are amazing prices!!
This is one of the sides of the basket.  The border along the bottom has cute little Easter bunnies hopping around it - it is a Martha Stewart punch.  The gorgeous vine ribbon is from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, as is the pink ribbon on the handle and the button twine.
Finally, the other side of the basket.  I have also used the doohickey Tilda Lace die #3 around the top of the basket.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at Magnolia-Licious Challenge!  Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations!  As always Diana is offering the amazing prize of $25 gift certificate for the Magnolia-Licious store!!
Thanks for looking! x

Hi Pat! Your basket is wonderful! I love the soft pretty colors (and yes, the soft bunny, too!!)
I would love to have the directions for the basket, but I don't think your link is working. Can you help me out please?
Thanks for the great inspiration!
