I'm so glad you like your pages WYOKrista. Smiley

goatgoddess' pink porpoise page is adorable!
I like the layers in Little Green Dragonfly's white pages... rather mysterious. Some gorgeous pinks and reds and blues before that (I'm a but out of it or I would have complimented them all!)

mub- I think they put mail on a slow boat across the Atlantic to keep us in suspense!

alteredmommy- I'd be happy to join another round and go monochromatic. Thanks very much for organizing!  Grin

I put my book together last night.  Those of you who haven't received all of your pages...please look the other way because I KNOW how hard that can be.   Tongue



I wanted to show this page so that WYOKrista could see that I saved her backs and fronts.  Yeah!  I think they look super cool!

I would love to but I'm not going to win any book-binding awards on this one Wink

I covered mat board with paper on both sides in different pink or pink/orange papers that I thought looked good together.  TONS of sparkles...I'm walking around with glitter all over me since yesterday.
Then I took each set of 2 pages and folded over the overhang part (the one inch)together and double-sticked them to each other and the first cardstock.  It looks like on the cover board and the end board, the same as the picture where I'm showing WYOKrista's page.  Then I glued and/or double-stick taped each set, the same way, to each other until the end. On both of the end boards, there was white to cover up so I just glued a pretty pink paper over the ends.  I hope that makes sense.  Let me know if it doesn't okay?

It looks awesome kiki!  Did you just stick the tags in between the pages that they go with? 

I'm trying to figure out how to make some little slots or something to stick them in at the beginning and end of my book.  I bought a book on bookbinding last night so hopefully i'll get started on making my covers soon.

let me play catch-up......very cool looking "spider lady" white pages you did LGD, I really like how you used the front and back of the lady!   And minuette, those green pages are totally awesome!!  Gorgeous papers/theme!!

Good job binding your pink book kikigirl-thanks for posting all the pages together!  It is so cool seeing everyone's different work with a common colour.

There appears to be some kind of secret message or image behind the ladies that I didn't noticed until I looked at the photos I took.

LGD, do you care to tell the secret? Its killing me!

good job on your pink book! love how it all goest together!

haven't thought about mine yet - leaning towards mounting them on the wall as a unit but if there is a round II maybe a book would be cooler......

I was going to make a little slot for everything too but I really liked how everything was looking together and decided to just stick the tags in their pages.  I love the way the tags look against their pages since everyone designed them to compliment the pages. 

Thanks for the compliment on the book...I can't stop looking at it!  I love books like this and can't believe it is mine.  Yeah!  Cheesy

It looks awesome kiki!  Did you just stick the tags in between the pages that they go with?
