Scrapbook Cover

First--a quick reminder to the Blog Love (aka Candy) giveaway winner--(in this case Terrie B)--remember, you need to contact me within a week of winning in order to claim your prize.  Scroll down to the giveaway winner post to get my email ; )  I don't want you to miss out!

Yesterday was a scrappy day.  I played with my new bind-it-all, and I have to say, while I love it, I DO NOT love the way they center their projects, so I developed my own system .  I'll have to do some more study to perfect my technique, but I guess that's the way it is with new tools.

I finally did my first scrapbook layout!!  I'm a card/home dec person, but I really want to do scrapbooking.  This is the cover of a little book I am making for my dd, LW, and her fiance.  The papers are from the May SEI kit-of-the month club ,which includes the album.  I really love Club Sei; they have a mini-kit one month for 17.95 and a mega-kit the next for 24.95.  You can skip months, and they really give a ton of stuff for the money.  The November mini-kit was PACKED.  Plus, I got the "back-issue" May and July kits for 1/2 price when they sent me a coupon offer after joining.  A great deal!  Highly recommend!

I know this is pretty simple (and hey, that's my style!), but it's a start ; )
I added ribbon from American Crafts, Lagoon brads from Close to My Heart, and the stamp, which says "Together Forever" in the little journal circle is from the Unity set from Close to My Heart.  Ink is Chocolate Brown from CTMH.
