A Smash Book

Hi, I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. My weekend started with the best news. I made it on the LESSology design team.  Thank you so much to all of you who took the time to vote for me. They are having their very first challenge this week. The challenge is to alter an old board book or an old dictionary. Or make one from scratch. Be sure to check it out. 
I have been working all weekend on smash or grunge books. They are so much fun. 
I started with a 10 cent book from a garage sale.

This is how it ended up.

If you would like to see what is inside you will have to watch the video. There are a few surprises I know you will like.

Altering an old book is so much fun I hope you will join the challenge over at LESSology.

Thanks for stopping,
