I'm full of excitement and pride today! My daughter, Sarah and I just got back last night from the US Olympic Training Center in
. I'll share that story with you in just a bit, but first I'm sure you came to see Colorado Springs, Colorado ! Cocoa
The day before we left for
, I saw this Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge. I had hoped I would have time to play before leaving. Who was I kidding? So first thing this morning I just had to put the laundry and unpacking aside... I just love Colorado Springs . He's so cute, and it is the first Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge! Cocoa
The challenge was to make something for someone you love. The only requirement was to use a Cocoa Mouse image. I wanted something more than just a card, so this is what I came up with. It's a cocoa pocket card. My younger daughter, Katelyn loves hot chocolate and I thought this would be a fun way to let her know how much I missed her over the weekend. All though, she was very happy to stay home with her dad. She's not much of a traveler. Their plan for the weekend, lots of pizza and
and Hardy movies! Laurel
Here are the measurements for the pocket card.
Start with heavy piece of card stock 5 1/4 x 11 1/2. Score at 3 3/4, 4 and 7 3/4.
Turn card stock around and measure up 1 1/2 from bottom left corner. Then, with your paper trimmer cut from the upper right corner down to the 1 1/2 mark. Fold in on score line and tape to form pocket. I hope these instructions are clear. If not, please contact me.
As I mentioned above, my daughter, Sarah and I got back last night from the US Olympic Training Center in
