Expo Int is offering a giveaway as part of this hop, a beautiful assortment of trims!


be sure to visit their facebook page or view them on instagram for the details of how to enter to win.

i was given a lovely assortment of springy blues and aquas with accents of white and pearl…


the spring theme and a cute sequin bunny tucked among the trims were my inspiration.

i thought an Easter purse would be perfect for these trims, and i had just the right plain canvas purse stashed away.

in just an hour or so with the help of the fab Expo Int trims, some glue and needle and thread, it was done!

here are a few closeup shots of the details…
