IT'S THE EASTER PARADE AND GIVE AWAY!!!

WELCOME ONE AND ALL TO THE EASTER PARADE!

1. You will enter the Parade by linking to a specific post that shares one of the following: Easter or Spring décor, Easter or Spring Crafts, Special Family celebration ideas for either of these, Recipes or Family favorites for this time of year, If you have an Easter Bonnet, please do post it, The first signs of Spring around your area, anything that relates to Easter or Spring. Pictures are great but just telling about a good idea is fine as well.

2. Feel free to cut and paste the button above and post it. The button is not required but please do link back to this post on my site so others can enjoy our fun.

3. Once your post is ready, come back to my site and sign up in the Mr. Linky box below. Please link to a specific post. You may link more than once if you have several posts that apply to the celebration of Spring or Easter. You may want to put your name and then a one or two word description of your Easter or Spring idea in parenthesis. For example: Sandy Babb (Easter Decor)

Did someone mention a give away?
Here are the goodies:

PRIZE #1:

What would Easter be without a cute little bunny? Here is a sweet little ballerina bunny accepting her bouquet, ready to take a bow. She comes with her own little stand and a set of three of my custom designed Tutu Tags! These are so cute on a package for special little girl, but big girls love them too!

PRIZE #2:

Well, we have the bunny so we must also have a basket! This is a darling little embellished basket filled with a sweet little fuzzy chick resting atop four ceramic Easter egg ornaments! She also comes with a set of three of my custom designed Springtime Nest tags!



PRIZES #3 & #4:

Since this parade is celebrating Easter and the first official day of Spring why not welcome them in with one of these sweet little signs? Both signs are my custom designs using wooden baby hangers, hand made embellishments, and lots of sparkle for that extra festive touch! (Oops, forgot to take pictures of the set of tags to go with each ~ I’ll post those later!)



PRIZES #5 & #6:

We have our bunny, our basket, and our décor now we need to take photos of our celebration! We need some place to keep and display those photos so why not a sweet little spring inspired photo album, matching tag, and ink pen to journal with?


Maybe you prefer to display your photos, so here is a nature inspired magnetic board, with vintage button magnets, that hang from a rich chocolate brown velvet ribbon. The board comes with a bonus of a custom designed, nature inspired tag!

All you have to do to be eligible to win is to stop leave a comment, invite your friends!

The winners will be announced on Monday, March 24, 2008!

I'm off to prepare my post for tomorrow so I can come to my own parade! Silly Miss Sandy forgot that it was her turn to host a luncheon tomorrow! I spent most of today preparing for that so I have not had time to get my post ready. Well, any good hostess always lets her guests go first anyway so if you get here before I do just parade away and I'll catch up with you along the route!

UPDATE : In case you are wondering about your hostess, she is MIA, and will post her entry this afternoon for your blogging pleasure. I promise you it will be worth the wait. I also apologize for being a bad hostess and not posting early but it is what it is when you are forgetful and have two coinciding commitments. Thank you for all showing up and I'll see you soon. I can't wait until this evening when I can kick back and relax with you all. Much thanks, Miss Sandy

UPDATED UPDATE: Your MIA hostess finally got her post on the list!!!! After everyone left yesterday I finished my post and guess what? Our network went down! After it got back up I tried to post and guess what? Blogger was down! Talk about frustration! I spent and anxious evening checking and checking until I finally got it posted. Relieved I thought, OK now I will visit the parade. Guess what? Blogger went back down and did not allow me to access it until late this afternoon. I am trying my best to get to every one today and view their post and then throughout the weekend I will linger over the blogs themselves. Thank you all so much for your patience and for participating!

Without further ado, I introduce our Master of Ceremonies, Mr. Linky!


If you are wondering, I am #28!

Blessings,

Morning, Miss Sandy! It sure came early today now didn't it?! :D

I may have done that wrong...the linky thing. I see that others actually shared what they're doing. Prolly best if I don't do that as I wouldn't have a visitor! LOL!

Good morning Sandy!

Vee invited me to your lovely Easter Parade!

I have a few posts appropriate for Spring and Easter in my blog -- today is spring poetry, yesterday was all you would ever want to know about PEEPS candy, and a few posts early I had quite a few fun links for Easter crafts and decorations.

I'm going to enjoy exploring everyone's sites.

Thanks and HAPPY SPRING ~ HAPPY EASTER!
Hugs, Pat
