What do jelly beans and a PK " Let's Face it Friday Challenge" have in common?

The answer....my little Easter candy dish!

Create a spring-inspired handmade gift using Peachy Keen Faces

I was at my local craft store, Crafts Direct, I think one of the best in the country, and found this cute little glass bucket. 
It is about 6" in diameter and about the same in height. The best part, all their spring stuff is 50% off, so this little container cost me only $2.50.  It's perfect to decorate for an Easter treat container or Easter basket gift for a neighbor, friends, etc.
So, trying to use a cartridge I have not used in a while, I pulled out the Everday Paper Dolls, Freshly Picked, and Easter 2010 cartridges to decorate this container with a Peter Rabbit theme.
Those bunnies are just looking at Mr. McGregor saying... "wasn't me!"  LOL!

Now I just have to keep from eating all those jelly beans. 
Enjoy your weekend!!

Here's how I did it.... 
All paper is from my scrap stash 
Farmer cut at 3" 
  • Body using blackout feature so I could add his face from Everyday Paper Dolls, p.28
  • Clothes, p. 68
  • Garden tool, p. 69
Carrots/layers cut at 2.46" from Freshly Picked, p. 71
Sign/layers cut at 2.25" from Freshly Picked, p.42
Bunnies cut at 2.5" from Easter 2010, I hid the face so I could stamp it myself
Grass cut at 1" from Easter 2010, welded many sections together to go around container
Eggs cut at 1" from Easter 2010
Farmers face from PK Wide Eyed Kids stamp set
Bunny faces from  PK Critter Faces stamp set
Fabric flowers I found in my drawer and added tiny brads to the centers
Chalk and marker doodles
Pretty ribbon around the top
Add jelly beans or any other treat!
