It's time for another fab/sassy challenge I do with a bunch of friends on SCS. This week our challenge was to create something using chipboard .... so I decided to get out my bind it all and create a notebook!

I created the lines for my paper using 'excel' and then printed it out and cut the paper to the size I needed ... I have kept some of the off cuts because they will come in handy for a future book or two. I cut my chipboard to the size to match the inner pages and then covered it using my DP.

Yes I am still having fun coloring bees in non traditional bee colors ... heheheheehe! this time round blue & brown to match the DP I used for this book. I used my rectangle nestabilities to create my layers I used for my bees. I also paper pierced the two top corners of this panel.

To Finish the book off ... I created the word 'Notes" using my computer and attached the book plate over it.

Recipe: Stamps: Bees - Stampendous
Papers: White; Cool Caribbean & Chocolate Chip - SU; Retro DP - DCWV
Other: Black Ink; Rectangle Nestabilities; Paper Piercing Mat & Guide; Hodgepodge Hardware; Bind It All; Foam Tape

That is just too cute. I love the colour scheme.
My bind it all came today so I am hoping to have a play and once I've got the hang of it, make a lovely book like yours !!
