Happy Easter Weekend........and a little book that has nothing to do with Easter at all!

Well hello there, I hope you're all enjoying the start to your long Easter weekend?

My other half has actually had to work much for 'family time', but can't be helped so we'll be painting eggs, baking and snuggling up to a movie later........probably everything he wouldn't like to do anyhow!

Thought I'd post today because I've been slacking this week I know.  I've had a valid excuse with my stitched hand at least, but still there are things to post, nonsense to say etc.

I'm way behind with posting today's creation, as a couple of weeks ago the Two Scrapbook Friends DT were issued another '5 For 5' know the ones where all 5 designers are given 5 items to work their magic with.

Here are the 5 items we were given this time around:

.....a couple of brads, a tag, some twine, kraft heart stickers and one sheet of 'Photo Freedom'/'Project Life' type of patterned paper.

So what to do with this little collection?

I intended on a layout but the paper stumped me right off, as I'd just worked with this type of collection for my last DT kit and felt I didn't really have any more photo's that would work that well.

So Plan B.....let's do what comes naturally......ramble!

A few ramblings actually, all put together in a neat little book.  Here goes:

Most of the product went onto the cover of the canvas book which was a super cheap Michael's bargain bin buy.....(phew that was a mouthful!).......$1.80 I believe.

A brad is added to a flower and a few of the heart stickers added to the circle tag, which is cut from the sheet of paper.

I inked up an embossing folder and ran the tag through, then added a little doodling to change up the appearance.

I then proceeded to cut the rest of the paper to pieces, and use throughout the book.

Pages 2 and 3:

The Dymo labeller was put to good use together with Washi tape, and there's also a bottle cap that seems to fit nicely.

Pages 4 and 5:

Photo's here were found on my phone and were taken using the 'Pocketbooth' APP.  I think I've mentioned before how much I love this APP......obviously my kids do too!

I added more Washi and a few different wooden veneers to finish things off.

Pages 6 and 7:

More wood veneers and this time some are glittered too!

And that's about all folks!

I hope you get a chance to check out what the rest of the DT created.......yummy as always......the links to their blogs are over there on the left.

Have a wonderful weekend.  I may make an appearance on Sunday as I still have one Easter card to post, but I guess I actually have to make it first!

Take care,
