Blogger's Challenge

This week Lisa asked us to CASE one of our fellow members from the Blogger's Challenge group. Not sure how the heck she thought we were going to pick who to CASE. There is a ton of talent in this group. But then I remembered that quite a while ago Lisa posted a tutorial on her blog for this darling little 4 x 4 flip book using the Bind it All. That was actually the project that pushed me over the edge and had me running to the store to buy the Bind it All so I guess it was about time I tried it. HERE is the original post were she shows the tutorial! Very easy to follow too.

My mini flip book is using the new in colors so that it can be part of my DT challenge on Latenight Stampers and also the weekly challenge of weddings too! These are some of the pictures from my wedding! About time since I was married in 1997, lol.









I used a bunch of the rub ons from the Chit Chat collection to embellish my pictures. The front is stamped with the Together Forever stamps set along with the Friendly Words Wheel and the Razzle Dazzle set. All of the DP is from the Raspberry Lemonade collection. The base of the book is using Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo. I also used the Pretties Kit and my Bind it All.

Be sure to check out the rest of the crew by clicking on the logo on my sidebar.

Happy Friday.
I am off to go camping for the weekend with my son. I have posts ready to be posted if Blogger cooperates.

Thanks for stopping by today.
