Pink Saturday ~ Easter Confetti Eggs

Happy Pink Saturday. I've been visiting around at Beverly's place How Sweet the Sound. There are so many gorgeous items being posted, so many talented ladies. I am back home for the weekend, where I'm reminded of my childhood love for confetti eggs. They are called "cascarones" in Spanish. Growing up we would carefully break the eggs when we were cooking so we could save them for Easter. We saved them all year and started to decorate them a couple of weeks before Easter. They were my first love of crafts. They are so easy to make and fun to break on Easter day. After I had kids, I taught them to make cascarones. It seemed more work as an adult, but more fun for my kids.

I love the pretty pink egg with the flower mosaic. Some people are very talented. I will admit that my eggs were probably not the pretties ones on the block. Oh what wonderful memories.
Have a great Saturday!
