C A Splash of Colour!

Well, this is certainly a splash of colour hahaha!  The DT were given 3 colours each to use and I was given YELLOW, ORANGE and RED...real sunshine colours!!!!!  Now...have you ever had one of those days when everything seems to go wrong????  This was one of them...gggrrr!!! My main cock-up was that when I had glued all the book cover parts together it wouldn't fit through my Bind It All so I had to ask hubby to drill holes in it, took him ages !!!!   But I got there in the end...here is the cover before Hubby got to it...


I have loads of unused 12x12 papers so I tore them up to make pages to go inside...perfect for journaling on.  Here it is all complete with some words on the front (The Earth laughs in Flowers).


Very bright isn't it but for all its hassle I love it!  For more instructions please visit *The Craft Barn Blog* as its my turn to do a tutorial.

Thank you for taking the time to pop by, take care always, HUGS xxx

Karen I really love, love you book using this combo of bright colours on it !!! Fab use of JOFY stamps and other products in complement, and a great way of recycling our old scraps of papers LOL !! I was well worth implying your Hubby in the process to put some holes in it LOL ! xx

It's absolutely bloomin' gorgeous! But I had to laugh at you getting your knickers in a twist with the bind-it-all; I can so relate to that, well not with that machine, as I don't have one but with other machines going wrong. At least you have a knight in shining armour to rescue you :-) xx
