Easter Bunny and a Hot Air Balloon?

So maybe this is how the Easter Bunny delivers all of those eggs? ;)
Could this image from Crafty Secret's Digital Bunny Hop set be any cuter? I colored it in with my Inktense pencils and then cut using the Spellbinder's pierced rectangle die. I matted the image over a vellum envelope. The background paper is also from Crafty Secrets and is part of the Vintage Patterns collection.  I swiped the edges with a bit of white paint. 
I added a cluster of flowers, ribbons, deckled eggs, string, and lace. The large orange flower is a sticker from Martha Stewart.  I've been a bit addicted to them lately. ;)
Cortney's modeling journey is continuing to thrive, I am very blessed to say!
She was recently asked to be on the spring cover of Model Source Magazine. 
She was also featured on the blog and Facebook page of Handicap This! 
I also got an e-mail from an agent of a famous star stating that my original e-mail was forwarded to her.  I am crossing every body part I can in hopes that something big comes of it! 
She was bored on Sunday and asked to model.  So her and I spent the afternoon taking pictures. I love this time with definitely has become one of our favorite mom and daughter activities! These are just a couple of the shots I got of her.  
Unfortunately, today she is headed to the hospital for Botox shots in her legs.
  Because of her CP, her muscles tend to get very tight and spastic.  The Botox should help relax those muscles.  The stinky part is that she has to sit in a wheelchair that accommodates the knee immobilizers and the wedge.  It will be a bit cumbersome and probably irritate her a bit, but it will hopefully help her move her legs better!
So please wish us luck!
And one last thing.....if you would like to follow Cortney's FB page, she would love it! I would love it too!  Just click HERE!
Have a great day my friends!

How beautiful! I love the soft colors and the flowers. I did not know Crafty Secrets had digi images for coloring..... Your daughter is beatiful- hope the modeling session goes well and her legs tolerate the W/C!
