Happy Easter! Plus a Yummy Bonus!

Happy Easter!

I'm just getting around to posting this now and the day is almost over! I was busy in the morning with my family, left my house around 1 pm to go to extended family, had dinner and am just getting home now! This is the mani I've been wearing all day. Click to enlarge if you want to see some larger rainbows!


Started with a base of two coats of FingerPaints Black Expressionism.


Stamped using China Glaze OMG using A35 (thumb), T21 (words on middle and basket on index), and XXL Big SdP-01 (middle, pinky and ring). (See the knick on my thumb? That was the "Easter Bunny" opening a bag of eggs last night to hide while her nails where still wet and the scissors slipped a little putting a gouge in her mani!)


Added a few random dots to finish it off using China Glaze DV8 and IDK.


 Topped with SV.  This morning, I took a pix outside in the sun with a Cadbury egg I borrowed from one of my kids baskets!


This was my mani contribution for the Adventures in Stamping challenge this week too.

For something a little different, I just thought I'd share the dessert I took to our family dinner. Yummy Brownie Triffle in my bunny bowl! Its not only yummy as can be, but easy as pie.


These are the ingredients you need...brownies, chocolate pudding, Skor chips and whipped topping.


 Make brownies and pudding according to directions. When cool, cut brownies into bite size pieces, layer in bowl. Add pudding on top of brownies, add whipped topping on top of pudding, sprinkle with Skor chips. That's it!  For a double batch, you will need one more box of brownies and one more pudding box, but the large size of Cool Whip is enough as is one bag of Skor Chips.  For a couple batch, do two layers of each in a large bowl.  It's best if it sits overnight, keep refrigerated.  I had a large bowl and was feeding a lot of people so did a double batch so used double the ingredients which makes a lot! But it makes a lot even without doubling it. And in a pinch, I've used those store bought bite-size brownies too.

Hope you had a great day! Thanks for looking!
