Bonibleaux Designs meets VLV

With MrP leaving for Vegas for a week on Sunday, I had to make him a little reminder of just how much I love him. I love tucking in a card and some snacks into his laptop bag, which I know he always carries onto the plane, so I used this cute Youth Football from Dude Time Doodles and colored him in Packer colors. I then used the VLV Week 4 sketch to produce this layout. It's hard to see the embossed stars on the yellow panel, but they're a nice bit of texture. I wish I'd added some chocolate chip satin ribbon underneat the yellow so it stood out, but's already made it's way into his bag and into his hands! =)

On the inside I thought it'd be funny to put "Be a Bears fan?"

I just loved our Christmas time trip to Green Bay and it was extra special to see the first game of the Packers 6 game streak to win the Superbowl. With no NFL in the near future, I was a little crushed by the idea of not seeing my Patriots as my 30th birthday draws near and I thought it was a shoo-in for a gift idea. Alas, at least I know there's a roadbike waiting for me on the 24th of April!

While I'm certainly no marker master, I would love to get my paws on some copics to see if I could develop the amazing coloring skills some of my sisters have. Check them out over at the Sisterhood of Crafters! Some of Boni's super cute images are featured this week.

Have a wonderful day. I think I'm going to Spin tonight and then having a friend over for some facial spoiling and Glee something entertaining that isn't reruns...c'mon sweeps...get started!!
