Scrapbookers Anonymous Challenge

Hello to all my blogging friends! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far!!
Today I have a book I have been working on for a couple of weeks, it is for the Scrapbookers Anonymous    Challenge. This month the challenge was to use jounraling spots on your project - the more the merrier they said! Well I have used ELEVEN! 

A while back I bough several of the Making Memories Spiral Bound Journal books. I use them quite a bit, but there are a LOT of sheets in there! So I have a lot of them on hand. If you follow my blog, you know that my younger DD just graduated from college and I had a bunch of great photos that I wanted to put into one book. But after searching I could not find the right book - you know how that goes! So I decided the best thing to do would be to make my own. This challenge was perfect for that!
Here are a few photos
I have 10 envelope type pages, and 6 of them have a large tag inserted into the end for journaling. (That is 32 sides to cover in case you are counting!) I actually cut and made the book itself with an old ring mechanism that I had on hand. The paper that I wrapped the book in is a heavy Chinese hand painted paper.  Those papers are really nice and thick and have a very nice feel to them, they are almost textured - great for bookmaking. I buy mine at the Paper Source at North Park Mall in Dallas or from Paper Arts, also in Dallas. (this is a GREAT little paper store if you have never been)

The paper for this was Crate Paper - one of the mini stacks. And other than that I used a TON of stuff from here in my studio, far too many to list!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! 
I would love to know what you think of this, so please leave me a comment.
