Woohoo.. Welcome To The Blog Hop! The Stylin Stampin` Bloggers!

Good Morning Everyone!! Welcome to the Stylin` Stampin` Blog Hop! We moved it a week later, due to the holidays. I needed to have some "catching up" time.. and I think I'm on track.. I *think*.

The project I am going to share with you.. means a LOT to me. I want to tell you that I did make this.. but I did not design it. My very good friend and upline did. I earned what she has calls "Diva" day.. I did some outstanding sales (yay me!), so I was rewarded with Diva Day. I had no idea what we'd be making, but I knew, it would be fabulous.. and OMG.. it was/is! It is beautiful and I just drooled when she showed me what we would be making. It is right up my ally.. as I do love altering things.. and I haven't had that side come out of me as much with my Stampin` Up! product.. I'm not sure why.. but I need to do it more often. She opened my eyes to what I can do! So, I am sharing with you, my very special book. I want to thank Jenny for this amazing gift/project she shared with me being a "Diva". I really really love this book.. it rocks!

We started with a paper mache "box" representing a book. We covered it in designer series paper and used the Artisan Embellishment Kit.We also used the More Amore Designer Series Paper. I am so in love!

When you open up the "book" .. there are cards inside. We used the notecards and envelopes and covered the fronts with card stock and she had the most amazing designs for the cards.. I love them all! Here they are:
