Buzz Brag and Bee Happy Friday April 1

Well, I finally got a project done!! It felt good getting into my scraproom and playing with my stash. I have been wanting to use my Imaginisce magnets that I purchased and never used. While visiting Target, I found the cutest journal on sale for under $3.00. The book is canvas and such a cool print that I didn't want to cover it up. I did a search and found the idea for the flower magnet book closure, but no matter how many times I looked at the YouTube video, I just wasn't getting it to work. So, I came up my own method and it works!..The flowers are glued to the magnet and then the magnet is glued to the book. It took a few tries with ribbon and found the lighter ribbon works best. I did a decorative cover inside to hide the ribbon and everything is secure. So, do the Ns look a little funky? They should. I didn't have any Ns, so I used a couple Ms and cut them..I think it works with the album..lol..

Inside the journal I will help Nina set it up to be more than just a journal. When we were at the Mall, she found a journal that had comments for her to answer..Cool and very fun. So, I cut a few mats for photos. Example would be her photo on the first page. She can write 'me' and give the color of her hair,eyes, etc. There will be a page for anyone she wants listed and also questions like her favorite song, book, colors..whatever..This should be fun working with her to get it started. Hopefully, I can get a photo once the pages get filled in some.

Stop by Betty Bee's Buzz and share with us your crafts, something fun and exciting happing in your life or just to say hi!!
