Achoo ... pass the Kleenex please!

Welcome to my PaperWorksCo postings for the remainder of June ... you will see me on Sundays featuring 'Anything but a Card' challenges.

This past week has been brutal for me with regard to my seasonal allergies so I thought what a fun little project this would make to have sitting on my desk as I constantly pull out the Kleenex ... my nose has seriously given Niagara Falls a run for its money lately!! I found this tutorial in the Christmas Edition of the Magnolia Ink magazine. These beautiful cheery papers are Euphoria from BG and I used the lovely Harriet the Hippo who always puts a smile on my face. I coloured her in blue to match the papers. I used a Viva pearl pen to create the pearl drops around the square border. The MS Doily border punch adds a nice feminine touch too!

A close-up of Harriet for you ... isn't she sweet!!

Well, that's all folks! I hope you're able to pop over to PaperWorksCo blog and check out what Tanya has also done for todays challenge. Thanks for stopping in and leaving a comment too ... they are always so much appreciated.

Right, I'm off down to my craft room ... I've been asked to prepare a Father's Day craft for a class of 21 kids in a Kanata French Elementary school - I'm so excited but I have lots to do! See you soon!
