Peeps Blog Hop

I made y'all 5 projects today! The first one is this Peeps Train, I just love it and have it displayed as you walk into my front door, I plan on filling the cars with Easter candy so guests (and my 2 year old) can munch away happily! (I am gonna make sure I buy candy that I do not like! LOL) I used the "Santa's Train" svg set from SVGcuts.com for my train and the peeps are from the SVGcuts.com "Easter Morning Egg Hunt" svg set. The papers are Recollections for the solids, the printed paper is a digi paper from Lettering Delights " Eggstra Special" paper pack and the glitter paper is from Hobby Lobby it is Doodlebug Design Inc. paper.
My next project was a quick one, using a freebie from Lettering Delights and Peeps from SVGcuts.com "Easter Morning Egg Hunt" svg collection.I even used some real live peeps! LOL This is a great presentation to give some goodies to a Good Kid or Kid-at-Heart!

I also made a quick card using Lettering Delights " Peep" svg set (I used #4) , the sentiment is from Joy's Life "Wildlife Puns" Stamp Set and the Peeps are from SVGcuts.com's "Easter Morning Egg Hunt" svg set.

My 4th project is kind of tongue-in-cheek, Somehow, the whole Peep Corral idea popped into my head and refused to leave! I thought about doing an Easter explosion box but decided to just have some fun! I cut out a white picket fence twice and some grass twice. The grass is from SVGcuts.com's "Easter Morning Egg Hunt" and the Picket Fence is from SVGcuts.com's "My Happy Garden Hideaway" svg collection. I used Make-the-Cut and SCAL to make the "Peep Corral" sign. I prefer SCAL for working with fonts so I created the title in SCAL and exported it as an svg and then opened the svg in MTC to create the shadow and do the cutting. (sounds like way more work than it really is!) The font that I used is called "Fairlane" and I liked it, kinda 60's-ish to me. So my Peeps are all corralled and are no longer leaving colored sugar all over the house!
My final project was one of those, "I was tired and this silly thought occurred to me and I should have just gone to bed or the couch" kind of thoughts but, I ran with it so I hope it is worth a good laugh, I giggled and laughed a lot! If I was telling the truth (which I am NOT) I would say that both my 4th and 5th projects where goofy but they were fun!My Pirate Peep was created using Lettering Delights "Hat Hoopla"and the eye patch is from Lettering Delights "Aye Matey"  both are svg sets. I used a toothpick to hold on the hat. He is totally the cutest pirate I have ever met!! LOL
I do have some candy up for grabs, a pack of AC Cardstock Foil 5x7 size (perfect for card making), a Cuttlebug folder, a white gel pen and a couple of other goodies too (these are a few of my favorite things!)!! So leave a comment and check out all of the other blogs too, here is the list.
