Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs Blog Hop

Hi all! I am so excited to be part of this really fun blog hop hosted by talented template designer - Kelleigh Ratzlaff. Here is my project:

Isn't this just so cute? I used Kelleigh's Candy Dispenser Template and papers from Gardenonogie for my project. Doesn't this just make snacking so much more elegant? =) I inked the edges with tea dye and vintage photo. The butterflies are punched with scarps from making this project using this punch. I decided to add a pearl on the bigger butterfly after I took the first photo.

I don't have the luxury of owning a large format printer, so I had to shrink the template a bit. This little dispenser is almost 3 inches tall and just a bit short of 2 inches wide. I put some yummy Easter color m&m dark chocolate in it. I think it's good that it's small since it will in a way limit how much I can eat in one setting. It's now sitting on my crafting table and performing its duty while I make cards!! =)

You can find all of Kelleigh's template here at The Digichick. Here is the blog hop list, please go and check out what other talented Hybrid Chicks and Kelleigh's DTs came up with for this fun hop!
Have fun hopping! =)

This is ADORABLE! I might have to make one myself and set it in the same position! Seriously, I am actually getting excited about putting something like that on my crafty desk! Though I'll probably have to refill it every day! ;) Thanks for sharing, and if I get the chance, I'll make one and link you to it. :)
