My 15 minutes of fame?

Hi all,
I hope you are having a good weekend. After Martha recovered from her bug, Daisy got it, so I spent all of Friday trying to keep her sat on the sofa to recover, but as soon as she felt a little better she wanted to be up doing things. She isn't one to loaf in front of the TV all day, but I actually wished she was yesterday so she could recover completely. She seems to be better today, which is good.
On Wednesday, Daisy went to her dance class and I went to have a coffee with a friend and Martha while we waited. Anyway, a film crew approached me to interview me about the government's new idea to publish information about possible GM food in baby and child food. Well, I knew nothing about it, but managed to to talk about it for a while! So, Martha and I might be on our local news and current affairs programme soon. Hubby is now watching it every night and I am desperately trying to avoid it.
Onto my make, at Stamp Fairy this week the theme is anything but a card. I decided to make a popcorn style box with a handle to give Daisy for Easter with a couple of eggs in. The front and back are decorated the same. The images are Easter Clementine from Stamp Fairy. I love this cute bunny! I pleated ribbon around the images to frame them. The daisy paper is by Allison Ellis design. I also made a tag which has a homemade lace flower on it. I really enjoyed making it and will now have to come up with a little Easter box to hold a soft toy for Martha as Daisy has a great sense of fairness and will want Martha to have something if she has eggs.

Awww! This is super cute and a a wonderful idea! I love how you used two different Clementine images for different areas on your Popcorn Bag. Now, for some reason I am craving popcorn and think I may have to make myself some for a little treat this afternoon.

Thanks so much for taking the time to create this fun project and taking part in our challenge!

I wish you good luck and was happy to read your that little ones are feeling better!!

Good Luck !!

Well done you for managing to talk to the film crew, I think I would either have clammed up or babbled like a mad woman!
