Remember This?

I recently showed you this picture of some lovely stash I received from S J Crafts:
Well here's what I did with it:
I inked the edges of all of the tags with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then stamped the tag with a music score background stamp. I cut the sentiment from the MME Lost and Found 'Fun Day' title, because the blue just didn't seem to work, and used that for the front page.
And yes, the book does feature my birthday! I used my Pogo to print the pictures because I think it's perfect for little projects.
Although I did use some of the Lost & Found label stickers with the sentiment on I also used them as accents and layers. I think it's a great way to use up the labels that have a sentiment on them that you know just won't go with anything else you have.
I LOVE swirls and the "Sweet" one was too nice to use on just one page so I cut it up and used a piece on each tag.
I finished off with some pearls and crystals.
And then bound it all together with twine.
It was fun to make and everyone seems to be enjoying having a look at it.

Well I'm dashing off to the seaside tonight because I'm spending Valentine's Day with Paul who, I might add, just spent the weekend in the romantic city of Paris!

I hope your week has started well.
Thanks for stopping by
