Katie's Pen Pot!!

This week over at CES Challenge we want you to


the winner will recieve a £10 voucher to spend in store (P&P not included)

My baby girl has decided to take art at school (gcse) so she has been playing the last few weeks with different ways to colour & she has fell in love with my Promarkers!! Well we kinda thought maybe get her some for Christmas & then as her birthday is in Feb she could have some more!! But we both kinda think they are a bit expensive just to colour for the sake of it!! So I remembered Spectrum Noirs (SP?) so we are getting her some (shhhhhh dont tell her but, I've already ordered her the first set of 24) Well I thought she could do with a special pot to put them in, well until it gets full anyhoos, then she can put her pencils into it!!

This started life as a Hello Kitty tissue box (some what dented!) 

I am gonna apologise now for the photo overload!! lol!!
