When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

A quote from April Green's - Bloom For Yourself Journal

Good afternoon - I'm a little late posting my Crafty Boots project due to me visiting my friend's little girl who is 3 today. I told her due to my red hair, funny legs (Auntie Zoe has funny legs you see cos I can't always walk properly) and bubbly fun-ness I was being Ariel (Little Mermaid) Disney style just for her! I also coloured a mermaid and made her look like Ariel - though  I'm not sure that I look like Ariel really, but little one liked the idea anyway!!

Right so the theme over at Crafty Boots challenge blog is 


Chosen by the lovely Bev. So let's see your interpretation, longs it involves animals somehow you are more than welcome to pop over link up and join in!

My card is a CD crafting project, not something I've done for ages but it has the most gorgeous animals I'm sure you will recognise if you have been watching crafty TV lately!

Everything is printed from the CD other than the sentiment, card candi and Epiphany epoxy.

I printed everything on to watercolour card - this gives a lovely effect and makes some images look like watercolour.  I also printed the small image to put in my scallop circle Epiphany tool (green round things seen on my desk often!) and also I punched the pennant from my other Epiphany tool.

I love these images and accents they look so pretty and textured.

CD's are a great way to access many crafting resources, save on storage and I highly recommend buying the best papers you can because the images do look better on the better papers no matter what printer you use. I say it's the paper not the printer that dictates how it turns out. I've got a £40 Canon printer, but it takes the thick watercolour card and other 300/350gsm card no worries. 

Take care Zo xx

Lovely card Zoe. Love the cute little image, although I have to confess I do not recognise the character.

I must have dozens of crafting CDs which I have not even looked at for a couple of years. I had been thinking about throwing them out but perhaps I should dig them out and use them!
