"Hoppy Easter" Favors

Hope you all had a relaxing and funfilled weekend.  Can't believe it's Sunday night already.

We just returned from a family dinner at the Imiloa Sky Garden Restaurant.  Ummm, their buffet is always so yummilicious.  I enjoyed the Salt and Pepper Shrimp, Prime Rib, mashed potatoes, etc.   It was a little bittersweet as this was a dinner for our son and his girlfriend who will be moving to Oahu.  Since our son was sick the last time we went to this restaurant, we made sure he got to grind there before leaving.  And RATS, I brought my camera and forgot to take pictures of the food.   Guess I was just too hungry.   Had to satisfy my growling tummy.

Of course I wanted to make favors for tonight's dinner but rather than focus on a "farewell" theme (too sad), I chose an Easter theme.

Using the French Fry die, I created this little scene featuring Daba by Sister Stamps in the yard hiding some eggs.  He's getting ready for the Easter egg hunt.

 And here's all 5.  I didn't make one for me, not necessary.  :-)

Other Supplies:  Grass, butterfly, and egg punches by Martha Stewart, Copics, and Hoppy Easter stamp by Savvy Stamps.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you all have a super great week.

These Easter french fry boxes are so cute! What a great idea. I know you feel sad now that your son and his GF are moving to Oahu, but this will give you reason to come here to shop and eat also while you visit them! Wishing you a wonderful week!
