High Hopes & CBCC Challenges

This weeks challenge over at High Hope Challenge Blog is to create anything but a card. I have made this image folder. I found the tutorial while blog hopping and you can see it here. I used the High Hopes Mermaid stamp and coloured with Promarker and used Sakura pens on parts of it. The paper is double sided from Imaginisce and the rub ons are Bo Bunny. I've added 2 Prima Flowers and added yellow Stickles to the centre. This also fits in with the CBCC challenge that Catherine was kind enough to pass on, go take a look, this weeks theme just happens to be pockets! This is very easy to make, takes less than a 12x12 piece of paper and makes a nice change from cards.

This is the folder when full of images, its on its travels very soon to a friend!!
