This is for Tuesday's CRAZY FOR COCOA CHALLENGE # 21 - Thinking of You.
I used Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 319 - Concord Ivory Cakes for my color combo and Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 115 - Sketch Inspired for my layout since today's SC is not up yet. I hope all is OK with Roxie.
I used a just released digi from SWEET N SASSY STAMPS for my focal image of Cocoa with a bag of popcorn. My oldest daughter really really LOVES popcorn so I will give this to her just to remind her no matter how old you get your mama still thinks about your good will and safety.
I distressed the vanilla base with Crumb cake ink pad then colored the image with copics. I cut some popcorn kernels from my stash of Quickutz and popped them up with the focal panel popped up as well. I dry embossed the concord crush panel with Argyl embossing folder. My sentiment is from Three Little Words from Stampin Up and is stamped in concord crush ink.
ETA. Dawn just loaded the sketch and I think I am close so I am including this for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 329 with taking a slight liberty of a square panel and my popcorn kernels substituted for the 2 circle panels. If not someone bail me out of jail :-(

So darling. Like the out of the box.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
