Composition book and good riddance!!
My new favorite project is to make altered composition books. I made like 5 of them this week for my daughter and her friend and my nieces. They are so fun and unlike the chipboard album, I haven't screwed one up yet! Seriously, I cannot do those mini albums. I am so aggravated! I got a Mystery Box that I ordered last week from Maya Road and they were in there. I am sending them to Rhonda at Scrap Happens. Have you ever seen her work, it is so beyond awesome. Check it out! I am sure she thinks I am a weird stalker since I sent her an email asking her if she would please take these darn things off my hands! I dont know her, just found her one day and am so impressed with what she does I know she will have better use for them than my trash can will!!
My 4 yr old son always asks me, "Mom,did you make me something today??" Usually, its a no! Last night though I made him a composition book. He is starting pre-k on Monday!! So, I decided to make him his own book to doodle in while we drive up to take the oldest to college!
I made it pretty simple for him. I found .25 book at Office Depot and used some paper from DCWV Grade School, red ribbon and some cuts from Simply Charmed. I got these great EK Success yesterday at Michaels for $4.99 perfect timing!! I am entering this into the Altered Composition Blog Hop. Abbey from 2ndhandstampsblog is having a challenge there.
