Happy Easter & Golden Ticket in Easter Egg

Happy Easter! 

Daisy ever so patient wearing the bunny ears for this photo. I sewed her the Snoopy Easter scrunchie Daisy is wearing. The sisal bunnies are from prior Easters that my hubby got for me. This year he got me the cute Snoopy Easter basket since he knows I'm a fan of Snoopy & Woodstock. He said they had several pink & only one blue and knowing I like blue better he knew I would like it. When you press Snoopy's paw it plays the Peanuts theme song.

Used concept of Golden Ticket (from Willy Wonka) to put inside Easter egg for a prize.

I thought it would be fun to give some Easter surprises to Home Depot co-workers. I colored plastic Easter eggs using alcohol ink. Made a golden ticket to place inside an egg. Crocheted an Easter bunny & eggs (flat kind that could be pinned onto HD apron, forgot to photo these but can make a few more for a photo update later). Had people choose an egg and if they found the egg with the golden ticket they would get the crocheted Easter bunny surprise and others would get crocheted Easter eggs. Much to my surprise the first person that chose an egg chose the one with the golden ticket inside.
