A Crafty Little Place Color Challenge

Good Morning!  It's Tuesday and time for A Crafty Little Place Challenge.  This week we have a color challenge for you using these colors:

The DT got to use some really fun papers by Petal Pushers.  I got lucky enough to get the dotted papers...YEAH!  Love dots!
I decided to make my daughter a little gift box in honor of school starting very soon.  I was able to use one of  the newest releases from Claudia and Co ...School Time Lucy.  I made a matching bookmark to go inside this box that I plan to fill with some goodies for a girl starting Middle School.  

I decided to cut out the little pile of books separately and add them to the bookmark along with some punched out dots from my scraps of paper.  The letters are cut out from the Chicken Noodle Sizzix die and colored with my Copics.  I also colored that flower with Copics to match, as well as, the cream colored May Arts Ribbon.  See all the fun things you can do with Copics? You can find the directions for this box HERE.  I altered mine by making  a different handle.

Below you will find a supply list along with a picture of the Copics I used.  BUT FIRST....I must pass on this information.  Claudia is having a huge PRE ORDER sale on Copic markers.  It will be the last of the 2010 year.  They are priced EXTREMELY LOW.  Go check out all the details.

I hope you can join in the challenge this week and use those bright, fun colors.

I'm also entering my project into the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge to use Button and Bows
