All righty, now that we have all that out of the way, are you ready to see what the darling little carrot patch looks like...well, my version of it anyway, lol??

It's a mini garden treat box!! How cute is this...I'm so in love with this little cutie :) It comes with the carrots, grass, fence, (dirt) inside panel and a little sign for you to embellish how ever you want. I couldn't resist running my fence posts through a wood grain embossing folder before I distressed it with a little ink. For the dirt I used burlap patterned paper and chocolate cardstock. Since my green polka dot patterned paper was only one sided and I didn't want white on the underside of the leaves I simply swiped on a little green ink with a sponge. I finished off my little treat box with some ribbon and bunny with sentiments from Paper Sweeties. 
 I can't wait to fill this up with some M&M's for my hubby!!

Even though I didn't make the little standing cross, I wanted you to see what it looks like, here's a sample picture...
There are soooo many possibilities with this file! I can see it done in wood grain using either patterned papers or an embossing folder,  make a little grape vine wreath to hang on it, a little sign to hang on it, add flowers around the bottom with a little vine wrapping up it...ohh the possibilities!!! I think this is not only perfect for Easter, but confirmation as well!

I hope you enjoyed my little Carrot Patch and the little sample that Adela from Creations By AR made of the Standing Cross.
