Welcome to the first Ketto Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.
Instead of a card, I decided to make a cubby caddy. I found the pattern when I was in Myrtle Beach shopping at my favorite LSS, Artful Legacy. I get lots of good ideas from them! Want to know how to make one? Check out the directions they gave me...they're at the bottom of this post.
Here's a side view of delightful Kenya Ketto:
And a view of the top so you can see the four cubbbies:
Here's another side. I plan to store pens and pencils and an assortment of memo pads in my cubbies so I used this Stamping Bella sentiment and Kenya's Sparkle to decorate one side.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Lady Guinevere's Inky Faeries blog. Have a great day!
