Crafting With Cristina-April Fool's Blog Hop

***If you are looking for the Flaunt It Fridays Challenge, click HERE***

Good Morning Everyone and welcome to Crafting with Cristina's April Fool's Blog Hop!!
Get ready for some fun projects and awesome prizes along the way!! We have some super talented and amazing ladies on this hop who are going to blow your socks off!!  You should have arrived from the super sweet Christina.  If you didn't or you just happen to arrive and would like to join us from the beginning, then click HERE.

I have to admit, coming up with a project for this hop was a little challenging.  I was in bed last night, and it hit me.  It's actually kinda funny, but I do my best thinking at night when I'm trying to fall asleep (yes, it's a problem).  Anyways, this is what I started out with...

I got these supplies at Micheal's.

It is a styrofoam box and small styrofoam balls.  This is what I ended up with...

I cut these out using Designer's Calendar.
The cute lit faces are PKS Happy New Year.

All of these letters were cut with Robotz Cart.
I added acrylic paint for a little dimension.

This sentiment is also cut with Designer's Calendar. 

As a joke, I swapped some of the lollipops, and replaced them with the styrofoam balls.  
So later, when one of my boys or my sweet hubby go to open one up....well, lets just say
mom rules!!! lol

Ok, so your next stop is the very talented Lezlye.  Please go over and give her some love.
Before you go, I do have some blog candy for you...

I am giving away these cute sets of stamps by I-cling.
