And for my project....

I went just a bit Leere Aldrich crazy! I love it!

This project was totally inspired by and for my niece Talisyn! End of school year and she wanted to remember this school year and her friends with a book for them to write in - a sort of Autograph book for elementary girls :0) LOL I am sure she will add questions for them to answer and then drawings too - she is a real little artist!

I started out by getting a Bind-it-All he he just had to have the perfect reason to get one and this was it! Well that and they were on sale, I had a gift card in hand and well it was PINK! So I just HAD to buy it! I used two piece of scrap chipboard - and covered both sides with papers from DCWV Nana's Nursery Girls and sanded the edges to make them smooth. Cut white card stock to fit and then punched all my papers - wow like butter I might add!

I then stamped out nearly all of the Leere Aldrich images... and colored them with my Copics - I did this pretty quickly I think all of them were colored in less than 45 minutes! Cut them out roughly. Then used the Nestiblities Labels one and cut out a larger green print, then an smaller one out of white. My MM Slice was used to cut the "My Friends" out of scraps from the inside covers. I doodled just a bit - and the glued some of the Leere Aldrich images and the Label down.

This is the back... with one of my favorites from the collection!

This is one of the back inside cover corners -

And this is the front of the book inside - I doodled the edge - but I left the rest empty - you know how important it is to little girls to add their special titles and thoughts themselves!

The very last thing was the millions of miles of ribbon I cut and tied on the spring coil.. really wasn't that much, but I did want it to be really full and frilly!

I really had fun with this.. I sure hope Talisyn will love it too -

I do hope you are going to join in on our Blog Candy and sign up for the Stampavie Creations Newsletter! I am sure you are going to love the newsletter - and if you see your name as the winner you will be really happy you did!

HUGS and-
