Here is what I created for today's hop.........
I really love Cocoa........Well......I like hot cocoa but this Cocoa is Cocoa the Mouse.  Korin, owner of Sweet n. Sassy Stamps has Cocoa doing many different and fun things.  I thought this image was just wonder for this little Table Basket.  It could hold a packet of hot cocoa along with a baggie of marshmellows.  I wanted to stage my photo with a packet of cocoa but, alas, none to be found in the house!  Cocoa was colored with copic markers and completely cut out to mount on the front of the basket.  I must confess that I didn't use the same dimensions that were in the CD for this project.  Reason?  Well......I don't have the Grand Caliper Spellbinders dies or cutting machine......so.......I just made it a little smaller!  Quite easy.  I used the largest circle and scallop circle I had and decreased the size of the holder between the two.  Other than that, the directions are the same.  Hope you like my little cheat!


Your next stop on the hop is Monika Davis, but just in case there are any hiccups, here is the whole list of celebrants on this Blog Hop!
