The Greeting Farm -- Ivy Morning -- Easel Card w/ 8 Drawers

 Phew!!! I had a lot of cobwebs to knock down! Figured it was time to clean up around here, so someone could see my new project! lol Hopefully everyone hasn't jumped ship and still stops by from time to time. I don't know if I've been burned out or just lost my mojo but either way I'm If not, feel free to jump my butt!! 

The project I'm posting today was made for a dear friend of mine named Nancy!! She's an amazing friend and we've been challenging each other to find our mojo. So she had picked out a few digi images and I chose to work with this one from The Greeting Farm called Ivy Morning. I had wanted to try one of the easel drawers, and figured there was no time like the present. I hope I done the tutorial justice along with adding my own twists to it.
I made this Easel with drawers project with the help of the tutorial over at Ink Something from Kristine! I took the 4 drawer tutorial and made it into an 8 drawer project using the origami fold technique. 
I hope you like my project and I'll try to keep the cobwebs down to a minimum from now on!!  Thanks for looking!!!
