Sentimental Sundays Challenge

It's time for another Sentimental Sundays Challenge! This week Ann told us that "anything goes" - how much fun is that! Several years ago I purchased a Bind-it-All using some money I received for my birthday. It has been sitting on my top shelf gathering dust (really - lots of dust). I cleaned it off and decided that I was going to learn how to use it - I can't believe how easy it is to use and I have been letting myself be intimidated by it all this time. Anyway, I covered a couple of chipboard coasters with some BG dp and cut up some Naturals White to make the pages and created this little book. There is a page for each month and one spare for notes! I created the sentiment on the computer, used a stamp from an old retired SU set called Just for Fun. I added some charms and some ribbon and I think it turned out quite well! What do you think? Should I make some more books?

The cupcake image was colored with markers and mounted on one of those wonderful MS doilies that I sponged with Antique Linen distress ink. My stepmom has suggested an idea for the two newlywed couples in our family this year that I think I am definitely going to try out when I get home. This little machine has opened a whole new world up for me and I cannot wait to play with it some more.

Thanks for visiting!
