Frosted Designs...

Last Friday of did we get to September already?!  Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday challenge this week is "Office Supplies".  I know its back to school for my friends in the States so this challenge is a perfect time to repurpose those items for some crafty fun.

I found this binder in my mom's garage sale pile and knew it would be perfect for a project.  Aden had been asking me to make a book with his "model" poses and this binder was just right.  Aden is such a character.  This book will be an ongoing project for awhile.  As long as he is giving me model poses, I'll be taking photos. :)

I used patterned paper, twine, doily, tags, buttons, and a wooden boy for the front cover.

On the in covers, I inked it with distress ink and added some embellishments.  On the back cover, someone has done a math problem.  Just made me smile to see it there.

A few of the pages.....

Aden's personality just cracks me up.  This book is going to be a fun one now and to look back on.  Hope he never loses this personality.  :)

Many more pages to come.  :)

Hope you will join us at Frosted Designs for this week's challenge "Office Supplies".  Make sure you link up your projects to the blog for the chance to win a great prize and so I can check them out.

Happy Crafting!  :)
