CraftyCatz challenge 187.......



Good Morning, happy Friday hope your all ok.....
This week at CraftyCatz we have our lovely boss lady Carol choosing our theme, which is.............
                                               Lets Go Pink..
                                                              
Oh this is so exciting....guess who we have as our sponsor this week............

Yep...the one and only Saturated Canary...I was lucky enough to win a couple of Krista' images a few weeks ago and trust me, if you don't own any, you have to have some....so many to chose from to, you will be spoiled for choice....

I made a book for my sweet girl Mia, who goes through books like you would not believe, she writes and sticks things in there, and she is 'Smash' mad, so we made her a custom one..lol..
The image is obviously a SC coloured with Flexi and Promarkers, I must adnit to not being really happy with my colouring on this, maybe I was having an 'OFF' day....
The smash letters were cut by AuntySue and glittered for miss sparkle
Ribbon..Dovecraft
Hearts from Sue, everything else stash
As you can see, the book itself was put together by cutting two pieces of tough card to the size you want..
Then decide how many pages your going to need and cut those, either card or paper, up to you..
I put the pages together and glued the edges with some real tough stuff and also put a couple heavy duty staples in as well..
Attached it by sticking the pages to the back cover and then decorated and put a few pockets in and tag type ribbon for Mia to separate everything, believe me this is now a bulging wreck..lol....
As you can see I put a small spine on this one, I just thought it would make it slightly different for her..!!
Point is, my sweetie loved it, that's all I care about...lol...
Thats it from me for today, later on Mia will choose the candy winner and I will try and put the name up tonight if I get time as we are celebrating her Birthday today, 10yrs....where does it go....wow...
Thank you so very much for being here, 
take good care, have a fab week-end and see you all soon.
Janette
