Roomie Gifts for Convention 2013

Hi, I just wanted to post the roomie gifts I made for the CTMH convention we had in June.  I used the Dream Pop paper pack.  I love the bright colours.  It was a little magazine holder for cards.


  I also made four cards to go with the holder.  I wanted to use some of my kraft paper up so I popped the kraft paper with the bright dream pop paper.  I love how it turned out.

Thanks for checking out my art work.  Until next time, Happy Scrapping!
