WHEW finished CHI-OMEGA Book!

I finally finished my God Daughters word book! I probably made it harder than it was, but I do that a lot! She was initiated Chi-Omega in January. This is her first year of college and I am so proud of how she is doing! She hasn't seen the book yet but knowing her she will squeal and maybe even cry, very sentimental that one is! You can click on any of the pictures and they will open bigger if you want to see better details.

Of course I had to use Stickles! Love those things! The patterned ribbon is Bo Bunny. I used Basecamp for the letters. The yellow and red paper is Bazzill card stock. The patterned paper is probably a mixture of papers, all purchased at my LSS. I used binder rings to hold the book together. I can't wait to get a Bind It All!

Here I just used some stickers as there wasn't enough space for a picture. The clear stickers came from Wal-Mart. I got the epoxy stickers at my LSS. They were a set of Chi-Omega sorority stickers.

Since I didn't want my God Daughter knowing about the book I had her add me as a friend on her FACEBOOK page so I could nab her photos! All of the photos came from what she has on her FACEBOOK. She will really be surprised!

I tried to leave places where she can journal on some of the pages. That way she can remember more about what was going on. Knowing how she is she will probably tell me what to write (but I will use the printer!) because she will be afraid of messing it up!

I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the hanging picture, it opens and has a pic of her and some of her friends. I don't know why she was dressed as a ladybug in the other page, but of course I was diggin that! *LOL* I cut the ladybug with Cricut, had designed it with DS *of course* and the George Cart.

I just used some stickers on these pages also. The flowers came from the LSS. I think they were only 10 cents a piece. I used glue dots to attach the flowers on the page. I got to use my new ATG gun on the project! HIGHLY RECOMMEND ONE!

I tried to tie these two pages together. I used transparency for the title on the two pages. I never knew MS Word had so many features! I think I am going to like using transparencies for journaling and such! It dried really fast also.

Finally the last page. I believe this picture was the night of her initiation. I looked on the internet for a Chi-Omega motto or something to do with this one. I did find their song and printed it on transparency. The ribbon is again Bo Bunny, some I had left over from a LO. The embossed vellum is with the cuttlebug Stylized Flowers. I stamped the swirls on the last page.

Overall I am pleased with the book. I did have my DD's input on a lot of it. She is great about telling me "that looks awful" "it needs something else" "you are putting too much on there", etc. She is a very honest critic! *LOL*
