The theme she picked to accompany the color selections was Birthday!! So I immediately went into my Paint Shop program and made these balloons to celebrate her challenge. I Love 'em!
So as always...on to the challenge. I DID NOT make a birthday card, but keeping with the theme chosen, made a birthday book.
I started by taking a composition book from the dollar store and used an x-acto knife and a metal ruler to cut off the binding. Then I FINALLY dusted off my Bind It All (that has never actually been used for a project) and covered the covers with Chocolate, then punched out the pages and covers.
Next I layered the Fizz and Lemon and included the polka dot parade paper that had the Plum pudding in it. Is that Cheating? No answers needed I don't care, it counts in my world...lol. I wrapped the saddle stitch Fizz ribbon into a bow and attached the whole thing to my book.
Last I took little pieces of fizz card stock and made tabs (which I mistakenly hand wrote, next time I will take a bit more time and stamp with simple Alpha) I also need to work out the spacing of the tabs. But over all I am very happy with it.
Don't forget to visit the ladies and link up your projects. I know there are many MANY of you lurking out there that would like to play.
