Memory Box Thank You

I fell in love with this Memory Box Cozy Chair image that I recently picked up at Impress. I knew that it would be perfect for piecing or Copics. This time I decided to paper piece it with fabulous paper by Melissa Frances called Breigh. I went ahead and pieced the coffee cup with Stampin' Up Riding Hood Red...reminds me of fiesta ware :) Can you see the handle of the coffee mug? It is a heart...isn't that sweet?!! This is for the 2 Sketches 4 You Laura's sketch 17. Can you believe that this is my first time with a 2s4y?!

  9. That's very pretty. I ♥ the coffee mug. Both you and I ♥ coffee, so you know how much that heart on the mugs makes it super sweet. i want a mug like that! I collect coffee mugs from everywhere, esp. from Starbucks. I ♥ travel coffee mugs too. My favorite is this one I bought from Starbucks that you get to decorate with your own photos. I'll have to show you one day. It's too cute. Scrapbooking on a coffee mug.....now that's too cool. heehee
