5. What is the funniest craft disaster you've ever had?

When I made a ’Twas the Night Before Christmas Stamp Mini Album sugar box, I used many difference glitter and it spread all over the room even in rest room too… then I found my husband foot were sparkling with rainbow color...He asked me to clean the house.

Tricky glitter! It always leaves a trail. Thanks for sharing with us, Yumi!

I love the bunny wagon. So many ways it could be embellished and used.

This bunny set is just plain creatively adorable!

I seriously LOVE that bunny album. I sincerely mean it when I say it is just gorgeous!

This bunny Easter decoration is gorgeous.

These are so adorable! TFS!

Very cute and so appropriate for Easter. Nice work.

Just what I was looking for to give my nieces and nephews something different for Easter this year. Thanks so much Yumi.

That bunny album is so cute!

Delicate looking...very pretty. I like the combination of papers used...perfect for baby and spring. Lovely!

Cute is a word that comes to mind. Children would be excited to have the bunny filled with eggs. I am so glad I'm not into glitter. Lol. Tfs

LOL on the glitter story! And what fabulous Easter crafting inspiration. Thank you, Yumi :-)

I always love Yumi's projects. Such beautiful colors and techniques. Bunnies are adorable.

Thank you so much for the beauty and inspiration G45!
