Well as promised

Well as promised I would play with some of that chipboard. I did today since it was so rainy. I made a mini book I plan to send to my mother-in-law for her birthday. I am a little late but I know she will forgive me once I add the pictures in the book. The book is the perfect size to put in her pocketbook and take it to church and brag about those grandkids.

Don't you think it's cute. I used the Woodland Cottage from Stampin Up's new winter mini and colored it in with Prisma color pencils this time. I used some of the enchante paper also from the winter mini to cover the two pieces of chipboard I needed for the cover. Then I took some sage shadow and almost amethyst to make my pages inside.
I also took some more of the enchante paper and used my circle punch to make tabs on the pages. I hope she is going to enjoy this.... I found out how to make this book from Beate on Splitcoaststampers. Her ideas are so great. She shared this idea on a thread in general stamping because everyone was wondering what the excitement was about these great coasters.

I think I may make a few of these for my son's teachers for christmas...
