Look A Me Go!


Wow! Third post in one day - this must be a record lol. I really enjoyed making this little pen pot which was originally a tub containing herbal teabags. I was lucky enough to win 5 of Roberta's Prarie Fairy downloads & I used some of them to decorate this (Little Miss Mousey & Prima Ballerina). The papers are AGAIN from the Sweet Shoppe (but they do have soo many to choose from). The hanging charm is made by covering chipbord shapes with papers/images & I used my Crop-A-Dile for the eyelets. I finshed off with some lace around the top & glitter around the little mice heads.


I'm entering this pot for 6 challenges:
Tuesday Taggers - Let's Recycle
PaperPlay - Stamp/Digi & Bling
Lili of the Valley - Here Comes Summer
Prairie Fairy - Recycled
Whoopsi Daisy - As You Like It
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - Anything But a Card

Tracey, you are a busy girl aren't you. My blog is just a bore, I gotta get to work. Ah, school will be over soon and there's only one more soccer game so life will free up a bit soon. Well, I'd never be able to write again if I commented on everything here, but I love what you've got going on and this cup is just super cute! Have a great one,
Autumn
