Toadally in Love!!!

I made 3 of these for my monthly TAC swap. I just love that little froggie! He is stamped in Palette Burnt Umber on Mimi cardstock. I then colored him in with a mixture of green and yellow watercolor crayons. The heart is also stamped on Mimi cardstock, cut out, and then raised with a dimensional. I got the layout from Papercrafts Feb. '08, page 57. See I'm always on the lookout for great sketches! Since this was Valentine's month, I also made a quick little treat bag to include in with my swaps. I got the clear bags from Michael's, then made my own topper for them out of TAC paper. Once I decorated my topper, I slipped it over the top of the plastic bag and used a double rectangle punch. Then I just tied the ribbon to hold it in place. I love when M&Ms puts out holiday colors!!!
