Doughboy Bunny Nose

On Saturday, right before Easter, my daughter and I ran into the grocery store on a search for white chocolate bunnies. My son does not like regular chocolate and "the Easter Bunny" waited just a little too long to get his white bunny! They were sold out everywhere by Saturday! Needless to say, there were no chocolate bunnies in the baskets this year but that's actually ok. Neither one of the kids really LIKE them anyway....its like Peeps, its the "law" that they are in there. Anyway, at the front of the store they have a dairy case where you can grab eggs, milk, butter....without having to go ALL the way to the back of the store to the dairy department. They also had packages of Pillsbury Refrigerated Cookies. As both Susie and I were looking up at the boxes, we both started hysterically laughing at the same time. The Doughboy had a bunny nose. I know, you are probably thinking its not funny but it really was! I know the people around us weren't amused! But we didn't care....we thought it was hysterical! They were on sale 2/$3 and ONE lonely package had a coupon for $1/2 so I grabbed that one and another, making them $1 a package! I normally won't buy these kind of cookies because of the price for what you get but this time I just could not leave them there! And of course, Susie had to pose with the packaging!!

I used the April Sketch challenge at Challenge Masters. I used several different manufacturers for this in conjunction with a challenge at The Scrap Room to "mix lines".  The base paper is Iron Orchid Designs from the Beloved Collection; the pink and the bottom strip beneath the pleated trim are from Christine Adolf for Creative Imaginations from the Mon Ami line, and the blue flowery paper is a VERY old scrap of DCWV Pocket Full of Posies paper. I don't even think they make it anymore! I added some pleated trim on top of a K&Co Flora and Fauna border that I cut in half lengthwise. Added some bling and some bling butterflies for the Frosted Designs Butterfly challenge, Thickers and Glitz mini letters for the title and a Prima flower and a Recollections flower. I paperpieced the bunny nose to replicate what we found so darned funny!!!
