Challenge #224 - Happy Easter

Longer days, warmer days (at least in the northern hemisphere) and the first vestiges of nature emerging from the rest of a long cold winter.  It's also Easter and that means we are going to ask you to create with all the motifs and inspiration of the season.


You can share a religious themed project or a secular one with bunnies and colored eggs, chicks and egg hunts.  Just share that creativity with us.

The Poobahs were busy and have made:

You can link to your blog post in the comments below by April 10.

Be it the Circus, Carnival, Mardi Gras, Animals, Rides
Heck, perhaps you can get all creative with this and think of a project you made for a friend or loved one going through a tough time (you know, walking the tightrope of stress and responsibilities)

What were the Poobahs inspired to create with this theme?  Let's see...

nothing calls out circus to me than the big top and tickets to the games and events inside that big red tent - hence the ticket card in all my favorite circus colours.
