House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

Hey all you House Mouse lovers! It's time for another Monday challenge.

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge # 56 - Double Pocket Bag
Our challenge this week is Janneke's idea. Click HERE for instructions. Create any theme you want...just make sure to include at least 1 House Mouse or Friends image on your project. Click HERE for all the challenge details and design team cards. I also have some sad news...this is Janneke's last challenge with us. We are going to miss her so much! :(

These bags are made with one 12"x12" piece of paper. I used a double-sided patterned paper so the inside looks cute too. I was going to stamp little mouse footprints on the inside -- but totally forgot before I put it all together!

Oh time.

The paper piercing along the top brown piece was quickly done using my Scor-Pal Board & Scor-Bug Embosser. I looooove having cool tools to make the job easier! The cotton ball is covered with White Sparkly Fluff. Doesn't Monica look so sweet sleeping on that cotton ball :)
I added glitter to the flower petals so they are nice and sparkly. To get a border of glitter around the oval - I used a 2-way glue pen with a chisel tip.

Here are a couple shots to give you a better view of the pockets...

You can tuck all sorts of things in these pockets. Pictures, letters, cards in 1 side and envelopes in the other(great gift idea), the possibilities are endless!

is that fun or WHAT!

Just gorgeous Lori - love the papers and how you've used the adorable image as the center piece for that fabulous flower. Thanks for reminding me I have a Scorbug tucked away somewhere - must get it out and use it I love the effect it gives.
