The gals over at Ready, Set, Scrap asked me to create a project for them for their current challenge (as a guest designer!!!!) and this is what I have made! It's really cute, if i do say so myself :)

Minibook LOVE!!!
Most of the materials used are from the May Scarlet Lime Kit (yay - i used a kit!!!).
OMGosh i think i am obsessed with making mini books now - like a 12x12" sheet of paper just seems big and overwhelming and garish at this point!

And it was totally awesome being asked to be a guest designer - my first time ever! It made me think slightly differently about the project and challenge myself to come up with something as inspiring as possible but still true to myself and most importantly create something I'll want to look at a year or two or more from now.

The topic for this challenge is "This Moment" and I thought of dozens, if not hundreds, of ways to interpret this awesome theme - but i chose something that seems to be around me and in me constantly - music - that is the soundtrack of my life at this moment - the songs most played on my playlist and the lyrics most often quoted in my blogs. I think it'll be pretty nifty looking back next May to see what I was listening too and why!

"This Moment" is a very inspiring theme and I have even written it down on a piece of paper and adhered it to my inspiration board so when i get stuck in the future I can use it to jog my thoughtsicles (YES!!! finally able to work that 30 Rock quote in there!)


How CUTE and useful are these K&Company Brads? I need MORE!!!

Now for some of the songs on my soundtrack:
Had fun covering otherwise pretty bright paper with drippy acrylic paint and Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist as well as Merlot Glimmer Mist. That was a constant to bring it all together. But also i used a bit of neon pink duct tape and regular masking tape = LOVE. Oh! And the pink paper clips - i bought 100 for 50¢ at the scrapbox last week!

This is the inside back page. The pouch holds some journalling I have done about the last month and why these songs are so important to me. But that would be for my eyes only :)

p.s. - yes, i know i am obsessed with Muse and Depeche Mode.
