MM Idol Round 4 challenge now up for voting

I know, you are probably fed up to the back teeth of me harping on about this, but I am still hanging in there, holding the Union Jack up high and proud for British scrapbooking (and myself, obviously :D) and it IS your votes keeping me in there.

For this weeks' challenge, we had to come up with a party theme and then create three items for the party on that theme. Had me well and truly flummoxed cos the one thing I really struggle with is themes, they always seem, well, twee or at the very least forced (for me anyhow). Spent all day Saturday working on stuff which ended up in the bin and started again fresh on Sunday morning. Worked all through apart from around 6 hours for a dance show and meals and a breather to watch a bit of Peter Kay (great fun!).
Mia's birthday is 11th April and generally falls around the Easter weekend. I usually buy Easter eggs for favours, prizes and instead of goodie bags, so I just really expanded on that. She has always loved bunnies and likes to dress up in bunny ears (she went to the Easter Fair on Saturday with ears, tail, oversized carrot and ballet dancing costume as Lettice the dancing rabbit - one of her fave books).

The three items I made were a gift bag for her, a decorated planter to hold the treats that get handed out to the little ones as they are knocked out of the game and then a table centrepiece in the form of a paper/card cake, to display fairy cakes and an iced Easter egg on top.

As ever, there are some really fantastic entries, some very fun and original themes too. To check out what everyone has done and to make your own vote, visit the blog here
