More mini-milk carton inspiration

Looking to make something different, I google Despicable Me and found some inspiration to make this card. There has been a few around on blogs, I wanted simple for the project I had in mind.  Now, to clarify, I have never seen Despicable me so know nothing about the characters or language they use.  
I did not have google eyes so I used a pearl with a dot from an alpha.  All product is Stampin' Up! (r) except for the alphas. 
What do you think?  Did I nail it?
Tank you! for looking, Margaret

Mini-Milk Carton Fun

 What "fun" it was to make these.  I say "fun" as I was mini-milk carton die challenged - it took me awhile to get the correct shape going.
 I used Stampin' Up! (r) die - it has been around for a few years now, however, this is my first time playing with it.  I am playing around with ideas for a youth group and items they could make.  And our Stampin' Up! group had a challenge to use items from the current Sale-a-bration (SAB) catalogue. In addition to the die, I have used current in-colour DSP paper Coastal Cabana and Whisper White CS. The white CS has been embossed with Decorative Dots Embossing Folder (SAB). The stamps are from the Banner Blast (SAB) with its matching banner punch (SAB), Butterfly punch and the butterfly is finished off with a tie of twine from Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack (SAB)..  The clips are non SU.
This shows the embossing more clearly.
I really enjoyed making these and I don't think they will be too hard for people of any age to make. They can be filled with Easter Eggs, chocolates, lollies (candy for my USA friends), a small gift - anything small would be okay.

A great beginner layout

I am teaching a lady this week who has never done scrapbooking.  I found this sketch on Pinterest, from myscrapsandmore.com (and do you think I found it again quickly on Pinterest - of course not!) and it is ideal for a first page.  She will learn about papers to use, cropping photos, matting, punches, design and much more.
I have used Stampin'Up! (r) papers Calypso Coral, Wild Wasabi and patterned papers from Sweet Sorbet and Subtles Designer Series Paper.  The alphabet/numbers are not Stampin' Up! (r) they come from my stash.
She will be making a double page layout as well, so I must get to work on this.  Thank you for looking.  Margaret :)
ps.  As you can see it has been awhile since I scrapped these photographs, but obviously just waiting for the right time.
