Sizzix Blog Hop - A Pocket full of Inspiration

Thank You for visiting my blog to see what I created
using the soon-to-be released
Sizzix Scoreboard Scalloped Box
designed by Eileen Hull!

The challenge for this "Hop"
was to incorporate a office supply into my design.
I chose lined paper and made my project into
a "Pocket Full of Inspiration"!
I wanted to create something that was as pretty
on the outside as it was on the inside.
I'm also a huge fan of Inspiration quotes
and wanted to "create" something that I could pull out
at any given moment....

I hope you like what I've created!
Have I inspired you?
I hope so!
Please click on the links at the end of this post
to see what all the other fabulous designers have created
and then vote for your favorite project
(please pick me!) on Eileen's Blog.
To vote, just leave a comment on her blog posting.
For example her current post is about the "Scalloped Box",
If you like my design best...please let her know on that post!

There will be 5 new scoreboard designs revealed.
One every 2 weeks, march 31st being the 1st.

Voting with close Monday April 5th at 6pm.
The winner will be announced on the interactive live web TV show,
cool2craft on April 19th.

Make sure you vote!
Because there are two prizes:
One for the designer creating the project that gets the most votes
and one to a random person (could be you!)
commenting on any of the participating blogs!
So please leave a comment "here" -
for your chance to win a Scoreboard die.

Michelle, I love your box! That cute little critter (I have to look at it again- thought it was a fox) is adorable and I also like how you did the closure- that always stmps me and I wind up using the same velcro every time. Thanks!

It has a vintage look to me, which I love. Like the idea for inspirational quotes.

You've created something truly wonderful! I love the idea of saving your inspirational quotes in a special box! I must say Michelle, I loved your composition.
Using the fox as your focal point is absolutely adorable! The colors selection is very complimentary
to the "mood" of your art. And I do have a favorite quote to share..."The essential ingredient to creativity
is wasting time." - anonymous. Love your work Michelle! Keep those ideas coming!

Very nice! It's really interesting to hop to each blog & see all the different ways everyone came up with to decorate that scalloped pocket.

Beautiful Box of indpirational goodness!!! That paperline is fantabulous too!

Here's my favorite quote:
When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.
