Easter Jewelry

Most of you should know by now that I make and sell glass beads to support my crafting hobby. For Easter this year I made Seth's teacher a classic Westfield bracelet with a shamrock charm. Since our school mascot is the Shamrock we are Shamrock proud all year long. Perhaps even Shamrock crazy, depending on how you look at it. In this town we wear green and shamrocks all through the year.

I ordered an egg box from Papertrey Ink, painted in green and cut paper to match the sides and top. The top has a sentiment from Stampin Up on the lid and the flowers from Happy Harmony.

I put six white plastic eggs in the box. Three of the eggs have jewelry hidden inside, a necklace, a bracelet and a pair of earrings (not shown). The other three eggs have her favorite candy in them. I wrapped ribbon on the eggs and taped a small flower to the top. The flowers have a small piece of bling as the centers.
So, do you think my kid will be promoted to Third Grade at the end of the year or be held back?

Hi Judy,

I've been lurking for a while but had to comment today on the beautiful box and jewelery. Absolutely stunning! So clever. I should think you're boys will be graduating college in no time at all, never mind third grade lol!
