Tou-can 'Post It' ... so shake your tail feathers!!


Hello friends!

Another week gone by with so little crafty time!  The up side to that is that the sun has been shining gloriously and I've been out with my boys enjoying it to the fullest.

So today is my PaperWorksCo posting and there is a double clue in my title ...'tou-can' not only referring to Tiki being featured on my projects but also that there is a second person involved today?  Any guesses ... yup, my 9 year old son Joel.  He saw me colouring in Tiki and desperately wanted to colour in the second one so I said, "Sure ... why not".  Can you guess which is his Tiki the Toucan?  I gave him some pointers on how to use the copics and away he went .... yes, I let him use my precious copics!!  LOL

Here comes the second part to the clue 'Post It' .... I made a sweet little Post It Note holder.  This was so quick and easy to put together and I used the fabulously fun and bright Echo Park Sweet Summertime papers.


And to complete the set I made this little card to match so I have a nice little giveaway ready to hand should I need it!  I even found some real feathers tucked away in one of my embellishment drawers which I added to the card - I love the effect!


So did you figure out which Tiki Joel coloured in?  It is the second one, used on the card.  Didn't he do a great job!!

I hope all my fellow Canadians are enjoying a wonderful Victoria Day weekend!  Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my projects.  All your comments are so appreciated and I really love reading them .. I know how precious time is to stop and leave them so each and every one is very special!

Hugs,
Danielle x

I can totally see why your son had to get in on the action...he is soooo adorable and pretty. I absolutely love both of your projects.I LOVE the effect that the copics gave...beautiful colours of greens and oranges! Great job to both of you! I think your paper is perfect that you chose to go with your little fellow!!!! Your son has quite a knack for working those copics, as I find they are not as easy as he has made it look! Have a wonderful evening Danielle!
