My Promarker Solution 8o)

I woz so fed up of not having my Promarkers handy when I needed tham that I decided to create my own storage space for them... this unit is all made from card... wont tell ya how much card tho  ... but it took me almost 4 days to make... so much back pain I almost gave up a few times & a alot of heated words ... coz I needed more than one pair of hands really lolol &...NO TEMPLATE WOZ USED EITHER  !!! I created it all from scratch outta my head  ... am annoyed that one element each time let me down.... for example... I had none of the red card for the red drawer lolol..... no purple spotted card candy for the purple drawer & NO brown polka dot ribbon for the brown drawer  ... but apart from that.... I LOVE IT!!! hehehehe
I even got to use my new Crop-a-dile  

what do ya think??? do I deserve a Gold star??? lolol TFL
