Scrapbook :)

Hi everyone :)

Our latest challenge is live on LESSology and this time we want to know....

Are you a cover girl?
Get creative with covers....the cover of a box, the cover of a jar, the cover of a book....

So I decided for this challenge to spruce up an antique Scrapbook I found at a local antique awhile ago :)
I got my idea from Connie who altered a Hymnal book with goodies without adhering it to the book by using twine :) So I decided to do that too as I didn't want to ruin the Scrapbook :)
Here is what my Scrapbook looked like before I added to it :)



And here is what it looks like now that I have added some tags that I made for the front :)



 And just like Connie ... I added the tags using twine so I wouldn't ruin the cover with adhesives :)




I used Bo Bunny's Mama-Razzi 2 that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com :)




 


And we have an awesome prize from Yvonne this time!!!! :)



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
