my top ten lists

Stop for a moment and think about all the Top Ten's you have in your life. Pick a few. Now make a mini. And date it, for sure. Because what's a Top Ten today might change in a few months. For me, I have a few that {I think} will never change. But, never say never. My, oh, my, how I've learned that one.

Using this Label mini book {which has 8 double-sided papers and two binder rings included} and some photographs, I was able to corral quite a few Top Ten lists in one place. And, if I wanted to add more lists, I can just order another Label mini book, saving the chipboard covers for another use, and have 8 more pages of lists to add. The Front Porch mini papers were used for the cover.

I randomly inked the chipboard heart with some Cough Syrup dye ink, added cardstock label stickers, a rhinestone studded bow and two sets of letter stickers. The flower embellishment was made by punching 3 scallop shapes. Use one as the base and adhere the other two back-to-back. Scrunch the double layer, then layer on top of the single {flat} layer and pierce with a brad. 

I'm using that super cute acrylic butterfly stamp as an embellishment on each page as well as these cardstock label stickers and alpha stickers in red, but they do come in several other colors.

This mini book was featured as a project during one of my hosting weeks at Write.Click.Scrapbook. and sponsored by Jenni Bowlin Studio.  I was in heaven having the opportunity to play and create and craft so many fun items using the papers, acrylic and rubber stamps, inks, buttons, pearl bling and chipboard. Thanks JBS!
