Art You Eat #2 - The Round-up - Eggs & Egg Shapes

The round-up for Art You Eat #2 – Eggs & Egg Shapes. The Easter holiday has come and gone for those that celebrated it in March, Spring is here for some, almost for others and months away for even more.

I am so grateful to all of our lovely participants this time around for sending in your egg-y creations for all of us to admire.

Here are the entrants, in the order they appeared in my inbox. The entries with a red title are the three finalists for this round, as chosen by myself and Inge of African Vanijle, the winner of Art You Eat #1 - "Chocolate."

Please check-out all the participants and then email your vote for one of the three finalists that most captured the idea of the theme to me by March 31st and we will announce the winner and “host” of the next round who will choose the theme for April.

Oh, and here is my little contribution. Chocolate filled eggs.

I wanted to give a big thanks to Inge for her creation again last month, and for her inspired choice for this month's theme. I think it was a wonderful theme that proved to put a bit of a challenge to us all.

Thanks again to everyone who participated! I really hope you will join in for the next round too! We’ll announce the winner around the 31st and announce the theme for April as well. Please email your vote for your favorite finalist below to me by March 31st:
