Getting the most out of your build a book..





What does the fall season bring into your life, for me it's the beginning of changes. First it's school then like the trees we also have changes it may not be the color changing but ours are from dance school to guitar lessons what ever that may be for you. So I have decided that I would incorporate and share one of the changes in my home. My 4 yr. old just started dance school, and that is a big change not only for her but for us. My first thought was I have to take tons of photos so I can create a mini album, but then I took the one good photo and thought OMG this has to be on its own but how?

So even though I enjoy creating mini albums, and being able to choose one style or combining from the different build a books is pretty exciting. Today I wanted to use just one sheet of MOSD square scallop on a layout. I knew this would be easy peasy as the MOSD chipboard is so easy to use. I covered the MOSD Build a Book with Pattern Paper and used it as my matting for my photo. I added some stickles to give it some glitz and viola a new use for using the MOSD Build a book. I also used a Stick Ons Picto Grams to bring my layout together with the photo. I thought it was perfect for my daughters first week of dance.
