Easter Basket and tag

Easter is just around the corner I can't believe it. This year has gone by so fast already. I made this darling little Easter basket with the instructions over on SCS here. Man I had a hard time getting my fingers to work right doing this. haha But I did get it done and its totally cute.
I used this little guy from the Pippin Mouse Family for my tag. I punched out a spellbinders label for a tag and then layered it on pink paper and cut around it. I need to find a way to put candy in these baskets without the parents getting so mad that its filled to the brim. lol
On side note... I borrowed from my friend Heather this Wii game/video called Just Dance. Oh my goodness... Talk about a blast. It has some fun songs and we danced off with the twins last night for about 3 hours. I know I can't dance and well that game proved it. HOWEVER I did beat the pants off DH and the twins. So maybe I can dance. LOL
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

What an adorable basket, Stacy! Love that darling little mouse holding his Easter basket, too. So, you're the Dancing Queen? Sounds like a good workout!

Beautiful basket and the mouse is so dang cute!! I got the Just Dance game after seeing Julie's video from Cosmo Cricket. I don't have a lot of rhythm but have a blast anyway!!

I just love your basket, Stacy. I made one of those last year, and it sure was fun. I'm sure the dancing game would bring a lot of laughs in this house, considering none of us can dance either ;D
