Baby is here - at long last!!

I decided that this fit better in reconstructed because I had this photo on printer paper that I printed by accident and needed to use somehow.  When the last Craftster challenge was going on, I accidentally printed on paper rather than fabric and ended up with a 8.5x11 inch photo of succulent plants.  I was browsing Etsy for a checkbook holder today and decided to play around with making my own.  So this is what I ended up with.  I used a base of cardstock and added scrapbooking paper and more cardstock and the picture on the outside.  I covered the whole thing in no heat self-laminating paper and added tape when I needed to (on the edges...I would do that part differently if I did this again).  I put in a pocket for coupons or cash and a button and ribbon for closure.  I'm so happy with how it looks, especially since I've never done anything like this before.  Grin

Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity.

Thanks!  My mom (who lives in Oregon) pointed out that these are Oregon colours..I didn't even notice that fact!  To make things even better, my hubby says he thinks it's the most impressive thing I've done craft wise.  I'm not sure if I agree with it, but it was a nice complement. Smiley
