FCCB Spring Fling and Giveaway

Welcome to Small Bits of Paper and the fifth Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop! 
It's Spring Time and everyone at Fantabulous Cricut has decided to have a Spring Fling!   Each design team member will be featuring an original Spring project that includes Pink, Green and Yellow on it, along with at least one Cricut cut.
If you've come from visiting Jennie at Earthy Scrap, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at some of our DT members' blogs AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Spring Fling" project at FCCB!
For my project, I created a little Easter egg gift box.  I used Wrap It Up for the box and tag, and stamped them with pink flowers and green leaves, using Stampin' Up stamps.  Before cutting the box, I replaced the image of a bride with an egg from Easter 2010.  I adhered a transparency behind the window prior to assembling the box.  The little nest and branch were cut from Zooballoo.  I inked all the little bits and also embossed the nest.  For the tag, I used a sentiment from My Creative Time's "Color Me Happy" set.  I added some gems to the tag and finished off the box with some Raspberry Truffle Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot.  

I am so excited to have prizes for THREE lucky blog hoppers!! 
Kimberly at My Craft Spot has generously donated TWO packages of Crinkle Ribbon.  My Craft Spot sells hand-dyed Crinkle Ribbon and baker's twine - and Kimberly has just come out with her own line of clear stamps, too!!  Don't forget, My Craft Time offers FREE shipping anywhere in Canada and the US.  (At the bottom of this post, I've added a slide show featuring some of Kimberly's fabulous projects, created with her quality Crinkle Ribbon and baker's twine.  They are SUCH fantastic products!!)  

Emma, from My Creative Time,  has generously donated a "Color Me Happy" stamp set for me to give to another lucky blog hopper!  I have a number of Emma's stamp sets and I LOVE them!  They are so fun - and super quality too!  There are lots of stamp sets to choose from at the My Creative Time shop.

For your chance to win, all you need to do is leave a comment.  You do not need to be a follower of my blog.  However, if you are a follower, please leave a second comment telling me as such for an extra entry

Now it's your turn! Let's see your Spring Fling projects!  Make sure to include a Cricut cut somewhere on your project and Pink, Green and Yellow!

Next stop...Larelyn's blog, Handmade From My Heart. Go see what she has in store for you today... And when you're done, make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest!

Happy Crawling!

Here's a list of all FCCB members in the Spring Fling Crawl:

I am going to enter my Easter egg box at Cricut Cardz Challenge where this week the challenge is to create a project for Easter, at Bitten By the Bug 2 where we are challenged to use the egg from Easter 2010 (or any egg), and at Cooking with Cricut, where the challenge is also all about Easter.
