My Favorite Peep

Happy Monday and Welcome to another week of AMAZING challenges!!!

I just got back from a FABULOUS weekend getaway with my besties from High School...
went to Chicago and had an INCREDIBLE time!!!
Ate a TON of food and walked a couple (more like 10) MAGNIFICENT miles!!!
Saw some FANTASTIC art and all American landmarks - it was an AWESOME trip!!!

But it's time to get back to life and crafting :)
So today over at 
a new Linky Party has started up...

Bitten by the Bug 2
We want to see Easter Projects!

My Project:
I used Create A Critter for this cute little chick hatched from her egg and Elegant Edges from the fun border behind it.  The twine is from American Crafts and the paper comes from ki (Wal-Mart) Bright Geo 6x6 pack. The sentiment is from a $1 Studio G stamp set, and I LOVE it!

I hope you will join us over at Craftin' Desert Divas, FCCB, and BBTB2 for the challenges this week!
