The project I'm showing you today has been a work-in-progress. I started with an uncovered word bloom book by Bo Bunny. I then covered it with my patterned papers. Surprisingly, this wasn't as difficult as I thought it was going to be. I put adhesive on the blank letter and then used my Exacto knife and trimmed around each letter. I then used sand paper to smooth the edges. I printed out all my pictures in sepia and then added lots of buttons, ribbons, and rub-ons. I got my rings on Tuesday and tied all the ribbons and called it good.

This week's challenge at the Red Banana was "tied up with ribbon" so I think this project qualifies, don't you think? I'm totally loving this little album and can see myself making a couple more.

***Supplies***
Patterned paper: CTMH Life Delights
Other: Bo Bunny word bloom, ribbon from my stash, buttons from CTMH, rub-ons from my stash
