The Squirrel and The Fox Challenge #35

Front View of Mini Book
Welcome to the first challenge for 2013, Anything Goes, at The Squirrel and The Fox!
We're sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and I'm using their Sunflower 1 image on the cover of my mini book. I love sunflowers and you might note that I've used this image before but what can I say, I really like it. :) A big thank you to Robyn's Fetish for providing the design team with images to play with! You can visit the challenge blog to see what my teamies created with their images or click their links on my right sidebar.

Now for my Mini Book which features some of my favorite quotes and Scriptures. It will sit on my desk and provide instant encouragement, anytime. I should note that I used black medium weight chipboard for the base and cut each one to 4.5" square. A Cinch binding machine made it a snap to put this project together and I opted to bind it at the top so each page will flip easily.

I used dp's from October Afternoon's Modern Homemaker collection and cs in my three main colors of red, yellow and black. All of the edges were distressed with Black Soot Distress Ink and black alpha's from The Paper Studio and red tiny type alpha's from Cosmo Cricket spell out the title on the front cover. Throughout I've used various stamps and dies and you can check the supply list for those details.
Super fun project that inspired me to make more of these to give as gifts. Everyone can use a little encouragement, right. Thanks for taking the time to visit me today! 
Congrats to the Winners and Top 3 of Challenges #33 & #34!!!
