Easter Tags, Freebies, and Altered Egg Cartons!

Hello Friends!

I'm late!  I'm late!  For a very important date! :)

I do have some Easter projects to share with you.
First up are the altered egg cartons I made for my partners in
Cassandra's Easter Egg Carton Swap.
We had the choice of neutral, natural tones or pastels;
My partner Heather chose naturals, and this is the carton I made for her:

And inside the carton she will find... 

Paula, my other partner, chose pastel colors, so I made this for her:

And inside...

This was such a fun swap, I've never altered an egg carton before!
But I loved the creamy look of paint on the carton,
even though it did suck up the paint and require two coats!
But that's what gave it the creamy look.
I also made some Easter tags at a mini-crafting session
 with friends Marti and Rosa: 

I just love those little chickies!
Also embellished with tissue paper garland and german scrap.

 Here are some freebie images,
perhaps you'd like to make your own Easter tags:

Thanks for stopping by...
Have a great weekend!
