I'm on vacation this week so I'm having fun getting in more stamping time and may even be able to clean up my Stamping Room!!
DH, Kent, and I just spent 3 days up in Vermont visiting his brother and sister-in-law. They have a beautiful post and beam house up there. We went snowshoeing twice - right from their front door into the hilly woods around their home. It was sunny and bright - and not too cold - perfect weather to be out there. Here are a few pics of our outing!

Now on to my posting today! I made this cute Easter Treat Package using the PapertreyInk set released in February 'Just Hatched'. The stamps, DP's and ribbon are all from PapertreyInk. I had submitted this for their March Guest Star Stamper competition. I got the clear box from Clear Bags but Papertrey also sells them. I used shredded Easter paper inside that I got from Michaels. I love how it matched the Very Vanilla card stock. I cut the ovals with my Nestabilities. The candies are small York Peppermint Patties and I punched & stamped the circles that I put on them. It took a while to get them all in there with the shredded paper evenly distributed around them! The CS papers are Very Vanilla and Soft Sky. I thought this would be a nice gift to bring to a dinner host on Easter Day or to bring someone in a nursing home when you visit etc. A small token that looks nice and festive!
Note I got some inquiries about the size of the container: the clear box is 6" x 4.5" x 1/2" and also fits 4 cards and 4 envelopes if you wanted to package up some cards! They come with little clear bands )like elastics) to loop around the corners to hold the box closed too - what fun!
Here are a few more pics of our trip to VT.

Thanks for spending part of your day with me here - I'll be back later with some cards!
