BFF Open House Link Party #97

The Answer Is Chocolate

It's party time again! Such fantastic ideas shared at last week's party so we'll start with a few of the highlights from that.

Looking for ways to repurpose plastic Easter eggs? Check out these chalkboard eggs from R&R Workshop. Is there anything you can't paint with chalkboard paint? 

Rhonda from The Messy Roost has another idea for those plastic eggs: 

Don't they look like real eggs? 

I am so in love with washi tape. Almost as much as I love chocolate. Bethany from Pitter and Glink has a great way to use it  in personalized stationery. What a great girlfriend or just because gift. 

I don't know what it is about things in jars but I love those too. Maybe it's how the glass gives dimension to whatever's under it? Like this adorable Spring and Easter perfect idea from Michele at The Scrap Shoppe: 

Or maybe it's that looks good enough to eat "chocolate" glitter lamb?  Speaking of chocolate , how about some healthy chocolate bites? Yes, I used chocolate and healthy in the same sentence. Lots of antioxidants!

Whip up a batch of these to keep your crafting energy level up. From Taste of August

Now time for this week's fun!

Yes I love the washi tape! I don't even have any, it's an extreme emergency! Love the features and what people are creating with those hideous plastic eggs! Ha! Thanks for the party,

Thanks for letting me join in. I just had to pin the painted apron's salad in a jar.

btw, the first party has a problem with her link. I hope you do not mind me pointing it out, but it is a shame to link and then you can't see what she intended for us to see.

You are a genius girl. Your guest book is incredibly awesome. How you figured out how to make that gorgeous book I don't know but you are very talented. So glad you shared this project and that I found your blog awhile back. Hope everybody appreciates all your hard work on that guest book.
