Create a Book Blog Hop!!!


Hi everyone, welcome to Create a Book Blog Hop!!!

If you have arrived from talented Jin, then your in the right place, if you happened upon me by accident and would like to start at the beginning, then you a may start at Joy's Life!

Read Across America Day , I am so thrilled to participate in this hop with such talented ladies! Hopefully this will inspire you to get out those books and read or create one!

Now onto my book, it measures 5.00 x 9.00. I created it with my daughter in mind. She writes such lovely poems! (Sorry the writing isn't too visible, it's purposely done.) I put in several poems with room for more!!! The front cover is created using A Child's Year cart. The child reader is cut at 5.00, the monogrammed letters are at 1.22 and the smaller shadow is cut at 1.18 (created with gypsy) I think it turned out beautiful considering, I changed my mind from the recipe book I had already started. This took me just about 2 hours to create...maybe a little less.









I hope you enjoyed my project , your next stop is Amanda, she is such an amazing crafter!

Oh don't leave, lets face it, a blog hop isn't a blog hop without blog candy!

These are the items I am giving away as well as a 10.00 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble!


All you have to do is leave a comment on this post with a way I can contact you ! If you like what you see, please follow, not required, definitely appreciated! You will have until Monday 3/7 to leave a comment, I will use Random.org for the drawing!

Love that you made this for her poems. I don't write nearly as often as I used to, but growing up, poetry was an escape for me. What a nice way for her to share and display!

Becky Dunham said...

What a brilliant idea Melissa! I have a daughter who loves to write and another daughter and son who are artists. I think I might scraplift this idea and make them each one :) I don't have that cart though - since mine are teens and I have already scrapped their younger years I didn't think I needed it, but lately I am changing my mind - that specific cut in itself would make the whole cart worthwhile :) I am already a follower of your lovely blog and loving every inch!

Such a wonderful idea! I think I will start a journal for my husband's poetry. He says he will look for a publisher in a few years. This would put all of his poetry in the same place for that occasion.

Blessings!
