...which made Pattyo our winner! Congrats Patty!!! Email me so that I can get your prize package to you. ;)

In other news, I have a sweet Webster's Pages project to share with you today. A while back, my mom asked me to make a card that all of her classmates could sign for their instructor. (She attends what's called the Academy of Lifelong Leaning through UD. It's for people 55 and older and they offer a ton of different courses. My mom loves it. At 81 she's going strong!) Anyway, I digress.  :) Since there were over 30 people in the class, I decided to make a mini book for them to write their thoughts in.

First, I took an 8.5 by 5 piece of cardstock. I scored it at 4 and 4.25 inches and folded it to create the book.

Cut several pages of white cardstock, 8 by 4.75 inches. Score them at 4 inches.

Lay the papers onto the cover and zig zag stitch them down the middle to secure them.

Now your little booklet is ready to go! I covered the front with the sheet music paper. Then I added a doily, layered on a transparency frame and added the door cut from an Everyday Poetry paper.

Then, I embellished it with a princess petal, some dazzle me gems and a stamped sentiment. I added some lace to the spine and tied some twine around the spine, as well.

Here’s the finished product!

I love how this booklet can be so versatile. You could use it to jot down favorite quotes. You could make several and place them on tables at baby showers or weddings for guests to write their comments. Or, you could add your favorite photos and make a brag booklet. Whatever you do, it’s bound to turn out lovely!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day!
