~Brrrrr it's cold Outside at Craft Us Crazy!!~

You notice I said at Craft Us Crazy! Here in Arizona, it's a bright and sunny day! We're sitting at 72 degrees right now, so I'm going to enjoy it while I can! And what better way to enjoy any weather...well in my opinion, since there's really not anything around us to do...Craft the days away!!! 
So for our challenge at Craft Us Crazy this week is something that makes you think of WINTER!!!! And nothings better during the winter than snuggling up with a warm blanket by a fire if you have one, with a good book and a hot cup of chocolate! 
So that's exactly what I came up with for this challenge using an adorable image donated by our talented sponsor Meljen's Designs!!
For this project, I chose to use the Yeti Cocoa image and some fabulous papers I had won in a blog candy giveaway from the talented and my dear friend, Wendy Ramlakhan. I think he turned out adorable and screams winter, with his little cup of cocoa. I also used the Corner bookmark Tutorial found HERE. Super easy and fun to make!
