Its a bugs life- Tuesday Taggers

This was inspired by a gorgeous piece by this lady. from last year. A stunning piece! Anyway the theme for Tuesday Taggers is Bugs so how easy it was to add a gorgeous butterfly and a bee charm to this altered egg box.

This is a gift for a friend who loves cadburys creme eggs - we went out together for the day last Friday and was telling me how much she loved them. So this will be in the post this morning as a little Easter gift for her and her partner.

Firstly I coloured the lid with pumpkin promarker. then used My minds eye papers, ribbon and lace from stash, glass patties pretties from Kirsty Wiseman - papermania flowers which I have coloured with promarkers and the ticket stamp from Hero Arts. The gorgeous butterfly is a Crafty Individuals one which is available from our brilliant sponsor this week the craft barn one lucky winner from "A bugs life" will have £15 to spend at The Craft Barn .Just remember to add the link in your post!

Sorry this last picture is so blurred but you couldnt see the bee on any of the other ones and I couldnt get a decent pic at all!
Hop on over to Tuesday Taggers - my team mates have gone bug bonkers which quite frankly is rather brilliant!
have a brilliant day!
