Easter Egg Hunt

I have many memories of Easter morning searching the yard for hidden eggs
the Easter Bunny had put out for us. Filling our baskets with colorful eggs.
Later to become Egg salad sandwiches.
When I first saw this door stamp from the newest plate
Windows and Doors at Artistic Outpost
I knew it would make a perfect backdrop for for my chunky atc.
A little nest of eggs and some grass fiber trim finish off the Easter Egg Hunt.

What special memories do you have of Easter Morning? I'd Love to hear them!

We always spend Easter morning opening eggs and then having an egg hunt in the garden, the children love it. I'm a child at heart I still like to get an Easter egg from my husband LOL. Love your creation, I must try a chunky ATC. Love the nest at the top too, lovely detail. Tracy x

Lynn, this is so sweet and certainly does bring back fond memories. I must confess however that I've never heard of a chunky ATC - would you explain?

I just love this chunky atc! I love the stamp! The nest that you added on top is a great touch.
We were always excited about the Easter Bunny visiting us! And our easter egg hunts were so fun. And then we would have egg salad sandwiches and potato salad too!
Hugs,
Sonya

Perfection Lynn.
Imaginative, cute and lovely to bring back memories for many people, I am sure.
We didn't have Easter Egg Hunts when I was a child but I know they take place now.

I love your chunky ATC, it's just perfect. My grandpa and grandma would have an Easter egg hunt at heir house for the 4 of us kids. After we found them we'd hide them from each other until we just wore the poor eggs out. Have a great day, Diane

Lovely Easter box!
I remember a neighbour was hiding wrapped eggs in her garden for us children to find. Only problem my dog was following her and eating them along the way. Good thing the chocolate didn't kill her. Wonder what happened to the wrapping???

Your chunky ATC is stunning Lynn.

We would wake up Easter morning and dash downstairs to see how many chocolate eggs had been left for us. For breakfast we would have boiled eggs that had faces drawn on them...it was always a challenge to try and eat the egg without damaging the face.
