binding together

This week Deb, Vicki and Vicki's mom Glenda, were in New England for MQX.  SueB planned a get together at her studio and showed us how to make books.
Kathleen and Susan also attended.
You can see photos of all of our books by visiting SueB's blog site.

The outside cover of my book is shown above.
I used plain white signatures in my book and will use it as my new take with sketch book.
 Randomly, a few decorative papers were added throughout and I love how it looks.

Using the scraps from the cut down pages, envelopes were made to collect treasures, add notes or small drawings.

I stuck several throughout the pages of the book.
 I think it will be fun to go back and flip through and find all the hidden secrets.

On the inside cover there are two pockets. 
One has an ATC that I've already decorated, on the reverse side of it has my identification... just in case.

Below, a sketch and a doodle already added. . .

I don't want to rush the process, but I'm going to love it when it is completely filled. I know I will.
And the best part  -
I made it from the start to the finishing lines!

Happy Creating!
