A Mini Adventure

Have been working today on a mini book that I started last night with my March GoGo kit. In the kit was some journalling tickets which came wrapped around a dolly peg and tied with string. I've already used the string on two LO's so really wanted to find a way of using the peg so I decided to make this book and use the peg as a sort of spine.

I made the pages quite small so I could use up lots of scraps. I used the acetate overlay to make two of the pages transparent and used the metal tabs on a couple of pages. I couldn't resist turning the lacy ribbon into a little flower for the front cover and used a mixture of letters for the title and throughout the book. I am really pleased with it as I've been trying to think of a way of displaying the rest of my snow pics cos I've already done a fair few LO's of them!
Have had a lovely restful day today in preparation for school tomorrow. We will be slightly out of routine as the teacher is being observed so I don't know what I'll be doing but I have no doubt they'll keep me busy!
Have just realised that the pics in the slide show are pretty small but if you click on them it will take you to Picasa where you can see them better.
