Michelle Perkett Studio "EARTH DAY" BLOG HOP AND GO GREEN!

Welcome to GO GREEN Blog hop.. If you came here from Abby's blog you are in the right place.. If not then you can start here www.michelleperkett.blogspot.com

I made this cute little book, it has 6 inside pages with little Pockets to hold small things. I used a piece of cardboard from a cerial box for the base, the paper is American Crafts I RECYCLED it from a project that just did not work! LOL We have all done them!!


I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and added Prima flowers and ribbon to tie it shut..

Your next stop is Lee...http://stampingwithgrandmalee.blogspot.com
