Thinking Outisde the Yoke Her Craft Kre8tions first ever Blog Hop

Welcome to Her Craft Kre8tions first ever Blog Hop which we are calling Thinking Outside the Yoke. Each Design Team Member was given a paper mache egg and were to transform this into something other than what was given to them originally. Our Design Team is to think outside of the "card" and do something other than cards and layouts. What a challenge .... could you meet this challenge?

Check out our incredible creative Design Team . . . .

Let's start with thinking outside of the yoke of our eggs . . . .
For my egg-citing project I decided to create a vase with flowers! cut the top of the egg off pierced a hole in the ends of each piece. Painted it with Apple Barrel Acrylic paint in China Blue 2 coats. Stamped little butterflies on both pieces with Tim Holtz Broken China  Distress ink. Found the perfect bead for the stem at Wal-mart in their dollar bead collection. The floral trim is from my stash of craft supplies crochet a bunch of tiny flowers in different colors, wired them with a bead for the flower center and tiny green 5 petal flower on the base and hot glued them together I cut fern pieces in two sizes and 3 different shades of green from the Cricut "Spring Cottage" cartridge.Stuck the flowers into a piece of foam packaging wrapped Spanish moss around it and put it in the cup added the ferns randomly and here it is.

Hope you enjoyed your stop and Like my transformation.  Your next stop is Kimberly on this wonderful Egg-venture! Don't forget to leave some love for a chance to win  the awesome prize offered by the group!
