Bind It All Book

Today has been a busy day! Whew! First thing this morning Chloe and I headed out to my favourite Scrapbooking store to pick up some Liquid Applique. I really wanted to use it on a card at my SAS next weekend and if they didn't have it...I may need to drive around the city looking for it. Thank goodness she got a bunch in this week! After that we headed to Michael's and I picked up tons of the new $1.50($1 in the States) wood mounted Christmas stamps from the bin.
I had told Chloe yesterday that since her Dad was away hunting this weekend, I'd take her to see that new Bee movie. It was OK. I think all the funny parts are what we all see in the previews....even Chloe said she's not interested in buying it on DVD when it gets released.
Since next Saturday is my SAS, I had to get creating 5 cards. I feel like all my creativity is gone. All the cards I would LIKE to make aren't cards that we can do at a SAS. Too time consuming or too many details, layers, embellishments. You know the things that eat up your profit! LOL!
Yesterday Nancy Morgan at Paper Smiles had a challenge up for some blog candy. You were to create something other than a card using Designer Paper. The catch was that you needed to make it a RAK(Random Act of Kindness). I made this little book again. I love these things!! You can see how to do it HERE on Beate's blog.
Anyway, I made this for a co-worker and friend, Brenda. She'd kind of had a rough week at the school and I thought maybe this would help to cheer her up!
Well as it turns out I didn't read the challenge right and you were to use Stampin'Up! paper. So you know what that means? I'll do ANOTHER RAK using the right paper :) Then I'll submit it to Nancy...LOL
