TIOT - Spring Gift

Happy Tuesday~ I hope you are all enjoying your week!  My week is not so cheery....it's dreaded FINALS week at school!  Two Exams today and one more on Thursday!  If I make it through today I should be doing pretty good....my hardest exam is today!  Eeekkk!  Please send some good wishes and prayers my way! :)

The good thing about today is that it's TIOT over at the SCACD Blog!  Today Suzanne has challenged the DT to create a Spring Gift....I didn't have a whole lot of play time in between studying and my cousin's bachelorette party this weekend so I did take an hour yesterday to get away from my books to whip something up.  I couldn't find what I wanted to make....I'm sure the "something" I was looking for was in a tote buried under something else....I guess I will just have to keep that idea for later! :)  Instead I decided to use You Have Mail from the Sampler Edition #4 by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD on my project.
I thought this cutie would be perfect for a little notebook to have by your computer to write down blogs or websites that you like to go to!  I know I always need paper by me when I am on the computer constantly coming up with new ideas while I'm blogging!  Papers are from the new Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage Collection. I wanted to use some bright colors for our SPRING theme!  Bottom corners were punched with a MS corner punch.
This cutie was of course colored with my Copics (what else huh?!) and then accented with my white gel penButtermilk Spica was used on her hair to add some sparkle.  I took a piece of fabric, cut it, and then frayed the edges to make it look like she was laying on the rug of her room blogging away!
 The sentiment was created with a PTI set that I purchased and haven't had time to ink up yet.  Stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa.  Then I took my Viva Decor Kiwi Pearl Pen and accented around the bottom of my circle.

Susana has some NEW PRODUCTS in over at the store, they include Crafters Workshop Stencils/Templates; NEW Prima Fairytale Roses, and Susana is now carrying the Copic Blender REFILL!  PLUS she just got the NEW Basic Grey pads in...they include Cappella, White, Kraft, Manilla, & Max & Whiskers along with some new colors of Viva Decor Glitter Paste...you need to check out these awesome colors!!!  Those new paper pads, primas and stencils look awesome (may need to do some shopping myself) and I always am using my Copic Blender Pen on my colorings...the refill is a GREAT thing to have around!  Happy Shopping to you!

Make sure you head over to the SCACD Blog to check out the other TIOT samples the DT has created!
