$15 Gift Certificate 

For my project I made a little book to hold inspirational quotes. As a general rule I try not to work on finishing details of a project when I"m tired but it's been a crazy week so I quickly sat down to finish up my project late last night. This is supposed to be an inspirational book so why I made a sad little girl on the cover I'm not sure, I guess she was reflecting my mood at the moment. The little girl from Scraptastical Kreations she's in a set called Apple Blossoms. I ran out of room for her hat and replaced the apple with a pink cancer ribbon. 

Thank you for joining us for our hop, the next stop is Robin

Here is the complete line up in case you get lost along the way.

Cut it up challenge #26

I'm home schooling my 2 boys so I created a form to organize our lesson plans. When I saw the challenge over at Cut it up Challenges I knew it was time to stop procrastinating and finally create a cute cover for my lesson plan book.  

I used files from Scraptastical Kreations to create my cover. I love mixing files and this project is no different as I used 4 different files. The yellow "sun" came from Sophisticated Scallops , the dino is from Dino-mite Birthday , the books are from I heart reading and the apple is from Apple Blossoms
