Little Bunny Basket!

We were going to take this Friday off over at my Sisters in Stamping blog this week, but at the last minute we all decided to make something to share and post!  I wanted to share this little project because I went in and made it with Jacie's class!


I love going in and making projects with the kids.  They are so creative and so appreciative of the projects!  Here are some pictures from our fun time!


Brianna and Jacie with their little bunny baskets!



I got lots of hugs and kisses from the kids!


Jacie's friends Shawna Lee and Tate!


Bailey bunny and her little basket!


Maddie and Shawna Lee!


Happy Good Friday to you!
