The Bad Egg(s)

Anyone else's Easter egg collection look a little out of control?
This is my mom's stash.  When we were little, she would do this giant egg hunt for my family, my cousins, all of our friends, and neighbors.  It was a big deal!
Now she does an egg hunt for all 20 of her grandkids, plus us kids still.  I know, we are probably a little too old for it, but we still love it!
Anyway, she buys new eggs pretty much every year.  And she still has eggs from about 20 years ago.
They are looking a little sad.
So I went through her stash, took out all the "bad eggs", and got my craft on.
But this is about as far as I got before other duties called.
My sister brought her little boy over for an impromptu Easter photo shoot.
As I was setting up, Kota Bear and her sisters were playing in the living room.
Without warning, Bear broke out in a curdling scream.
And to make a long story short, we ended up at the InstaCare.
Where we waited...
(Sorry about the fuzzy picture.  I took it on my phone.)
And then we got the bad news.
She broke her elbow!..
By running into the couch!!!
Weird, huh?
Anyway, so we went home and tried again to take my nephew's pictures.  By then it was late and the lighting sucked, so the pictures were lousy.  I was frustrated, and had enough, so there was no more egg-spiraments for me on Saturday.
Sunday was taken up with family stuff.
So I finally got to finish my egg-cilent creation late last night.
What do you think?
I think it needs a little something more, but I can't figure out what.
It's not egg-sactly there yet.

Any suggestions?
I've got a whole carton of "bad eggs" lying around, so you are sure to see some more egg-citing crafts from this chick.
**And I promise to cut back on the lame egg jokes...maybe!  Ha!**
