My favorite gorjuss girl...

So I wanted to make some personal items for the girls that won my blog candy that I just had going on for one week! It makes the candy a little more personal and I wanted to give them something special from me...so here is one of my other passions...besides making shaker cards...I love to make checkbook covers. I love this gorjuss girl too...she's sitting and she fits perfectly among the flowers =) this one went to Elena...who loves pink and purple! I love that new DP that I just got from J's. and I love my prima flowers...I use them on everything! I colored her with my copics...and added a sugar coated brad for the middle.here I wanted to try Jodi's image folder again, but I wanted to make it smaller so that it could fit in the bubble packaging that I was going to send their candy winnings in. so I came up with my own measurements...this folder is 8 1/2" x 6 1/2"...score it at 4 1/4" (horizontal) and score it at 1 1/2" (vertical) on one side...this is for the pockets that will hold the images in. decorate to your liking...I used the new in colors from SU and of course my favorite gg! I added ribbon to keep the folder closed...colored with my copics and added a sentiment!
here's what it looks like when the folder is opened...
I used pink brads to hold the pockets...
then I added images...the gorjuss girl set #3...
hope Elena liked her handmade items...
happy hump day everyone!
it's a pleasure to know you stopped by =)
