Easter Basket Law

Peeps....we all know what they are! But do you LIKE them? Personally, I do like them but not at Easter time. Oh no, MY Peeps must be left out to get stale for at least a month before I eat them! Nothing better than a perfectly stale Peep! My kids on the other hand HATE Peeps. All Peeps...chicks, bunnies, pink, yellow or blue, Easter, Halloween or any other variation of them!! So now that they are older and realizing that I KNOW that they don't like them, yet every year they appear in their Easter Baskets, they asked me WHY! Why would I put something in their baskets that I clearly know they do not like! Well....because its the LAW! All Easter Baskets must contain at least one package of Peeps and one Cadbury Creme Egg (which they also do not like but fortunately MOM does!) Do you see a pattern here? There really is a law, its not just because MOM likes them! Anyway. that's always my answer....its the Law. They shake their heads and move on!! The photos show just how they feel about their yearly gift of Peeps! 

I used paper by Best Creations...a pretty gliterry paper with bunnies on it, and chipboard Peeps stickers from Creative Imaginations. Aren't they fun!! Letters by Crate Paper and Thickers. I also used the sketch at Sketch Inspirations as a starting point. Challenge 41 at Papercraft Star was to use this color pallett on your project. 
At Paper Issues they want to see your "grass"! As they say: "We want to see what you are making for Easter or to celebrate Spring.Cards, Layouts, Altered Items...Anything!". So I am submitting this there too! I even really have GRASS on my layout!! LOL!   I used a couple small flowers which means I can enter it at The Paper Variety where the challenge is to add flowers.   I had fun working on this one. Now its off to the grocery store.

I hate Peeps too! My brother taught my kids how to blow them up in the microwave....
Cute layout!


Sounds like a perfectly good law to me. LOL I'll eat a peep occasionally but I'd fight someone for the Cadbury. LOL Wonderful layout for a great family memory. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Papercraft Star!

Ha! Too funny. Gorgeous layout. Love the peeps (both the candy and the chipboard). Have you tried vanilla peeps? Yummy.


What a wonderful layout Susan!! The colors and layout are beautiful and the topic is great! My Mom loves peeps, I on the other hand do not care for them much! Such a fun post! Thank you for playing along with us this week at Papercraft Star!

Adorable layout! I love the photos - too cute! I love that grassy border! Your story is so sweet - I don't care for Peeps either but love how cute they are so I usually buy a package anyway. You're right - it's the law! Thanks for playing along with us this week at Papercraft Star!
