*Paper Bag Book*

I am not a scrapbooker. I never will be. But that doesn't stop me from liking some of the books and albums that others make. I can make them, but I can't make them beautiful like others do.

There is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that get together on a monthly basis here where I live. When I can swing it, I go, however the last several gatherings have landed on days I haven't been able to make it.

At the beginning of March I was very disappointed to find out I'd be missing the Paper Bag Books. I've been wanting to learn how to do these for a long time now!

Thankfully, I was able to buy a kit and my friend Jen (hi Jen!!) lent me the book she made that night so that I could follow it. I finally got the book and kit from my friend Glenna (hi Glenna!!) on the weekend and I got to play to put mine together.

I didn't have any instructions but was able to take measurements off of Jen's book.

I can't take any credit for the design of the book as I just kinda copied what Jen had done. I definitely need to play some more.

All items used (except the ribbon) are Stampin' Up!

I don't have much more to share that's already created... but today is the last day of school before spring break so I should be able to find some play in the next 10 days since I won't be at work and most of life's activities will be put on hold!

There is one new project on my stamp table waiting for photographing... will do that today to share tomorrow and will hopefully have some more good stuff to share soon!
