My first Changitos

Little C's has Changito's on sale right now
and Jen sent a couple of them to me to play with!

Here's what I came up with...
For the first card, I used SU pumpkin pie for the base and then sponged around the edges with the same color ink. I found this cute paper by Scenic Route in my scrap bin and decided to color my image to match it.

I used my Sakura glaze pens for the snorkel, inner tube and fins and then mounted it onto Tempting Turquoise cardstock. I finished it off with some yummy polka dot ribbon and a sentiment punched out with my Round Tab punch.

Here's what I came up with for my other little guy...
This one is mounted on a black base and layered over some
green pattern paper from a retired SU kit called "Creative License".

This little Changito is very excited about getting his diploma and he's jumping, so I needed SOMETHING for him to be jumping above. I decided to make some grass with some beautiful leaves and flowers by All Natural Accents.

This is what the leaves look like when they come
out of the package - and there are a TON of them in there!

I added some adhesive to them, layered them over the
cardstock and folded them over to the back.

I just continued layering until I reached the other side of the cardstock.
Voila - grass!

Thanks for stopping by today!
I'll be back tomorrow...

Those changitos are such cute little guys. Makes me smile. I tried your chocolate peanut butter dip from "fool your family" and my boys loved it. Thanks.

I love the bright orange inner-tube & flippers. Those monkeys are too cute. Great job on both!
