Going on a Picnic! LOL!

Just a quick post to share a picnic basket that I made yesterday to my bloggy buddies that don't have FB.   I seen a picnic basket yesterday morning that my bloggy buddy Nana  from My Crafting Channel posted on FB and I really love  how cute it was.   So I quickly googled around and found a tutorial to make one.   I love doing my own cut outs and figuring out things, I don't need a Silhouette or Cameo to do it for me.  LOL!  I'm old school and will never part with my Cricut, she is to precious and I really take good care of her.  hehe!  So back to this picnic basket, I couldn't believe how quickly I had this cut out and put together.   I say within an hour my basket was done.    It was just the perfect timing too, by bestie called me early yesterday morning and wanted to take me out to lunch.  So this is how this picnic basket came into play.  I've never been to Spoonful Cafe, gee I was amazed how tasty the food was.  Now, mind you I bought my digital camera with me, but without double checking my battery life on it, as soon as I had  snap the picture of our dishes the camera went kaput "low battery".   No pics to share.... how disappointed I was.
But we had a nice chat over lunch and I surprised her with this picnic basket in between of our lunch.   She was stoked and gave one loud laugh that the owner of the restaurant came over to our table to see what was going on.    She asked me next time you come back here to eat, can you make me one.  I will display it on my counter....  That was so cute of her to say that.... 
Well here is that picnic basket~ 
Is this a cute gift to make some one smile or not!
