Little Peter Rabbit

You remember the song right? "Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose...." well I used to sing that to my kindy children all the time, they loved the hand actions and movements and I loved being able to incorporate my love of bunnies in anything that I do lol.

We're not allowed bunnies as pets here in Queensland, Australia.  They're considered a pest and there are huge fines if you're caught with one.  We even have a rabbit proof fence that spans the entire length of Western Australia with smaller fences along it!

Well I managed to spot a Peter Rabbit bunny in a Build-a-Bear shop and absolutely wasn't going to leave without one.  I can't wait for the movie to come out, so I thought I'd make my own Peter Rabbit/ Easter Bunny mix for Easter!

I used a template from My Scrap Chick and adapted it a little so that it had the same eyes as Peter, and of course his little jacket. I also added the furry tail.

What do you think? Did he steal your heart too - along with my Easter eggs?

So there you have them - Big Peter and little Peter.  I distressed the edges of all the paper elements on my Belly Box so that they looked a little furry and I added some wiskers.

Gorgeous treat box :-) the little bunny is adorable, such a cute little face and I love your peter rabbit too :-)

I didn't realise you couldn't have pet rabbits there, but I do know that there was a lot of problems with rabbits a while ago and they introduced a nasty virus to try to get rid of them :-(

thanks for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
