Happy Easter!

Good morning and happy Easter Sunday to all of you! One of my favorite things to do for Easter is to put baskets together for my kiddos. Every year, I think "oh this year I might just buy those pre-made baskets," but then, I see some cute things and buy those and some more cute things and buy those, and before I know it, I have more than I can fit in their basket! This year we are trying to reduce our sugar, so their candy was a chocolate bunny and Hershey's kisses. They seemed happy with that. Maybe next year no sugar at all? Probably not, they are kids!

Anyway, I made some cute Easter basket tags with a digi stamp for Sweet 'n' Sassy Stamps called Benjamin Bunny. You can get him here:

I think they turned out really cute, and the kids commented on them, too. So they must have made an impression. :-)

We are really changing our eating habits lately, trying to reduce sugar and grains, more veggies, etc. So no ham this year, I decided to make another of our favorite meals, blackened salmon, curried rice and asparagus.  With some almond flour cupcakes for dessert. (I'm thinking about starting a food blog about all of this!) I think it will go well, and it's a quick meal to fix, so I won't be exhausted. Not too many leftovers, though, that's the trade-off!

Well, I hope you have a wonderful day with family and friends, and check back on Friday for the Sweet 'n' Sassy Digi Challenge's first challenge, and of course as always there will be the fun Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge too!

I'd like to enter my little tags in the following challenges:

Have a great day!

Thanks for looking and happy stampin'! Lisa :-)
