Distressing #149

Well, once again it Thusday which means it's time for Mo's...This week we decided to use distressing as our theme, now how easy is that... So I took out my trusty little blade and distressed the edges of all the sides of my papers and make this adorable little journal book for my little nephew James to start off the school year just right.  But knowing my niece, I think she'll put it away for him.

I started my project off with one of those $1 books I found at Michaels but alas it was my last one.  But well worth it for James as he is such a sweetheart.  Hopefully they will get some more in as I love making these books and still need to make one for myself.    I used Super Duper Boy which you can find in both the Old Store HERE and the New Store HERE.

I will be entering this into the following Challenges:

1. The Crazy Challenge: HERE Anything Goes
2. Lollipos Crafts: HERE Anything Goes
3.Simon Says Stamp and Show: HERE No Rules
4. Make it Monday: HERE Always Anything Goes
5.Simon Says: HERE Back to School
6. Divas by Design: HERE Anything Goes
7. Paper Pretties: HERE Cards for Kids

I hope I inspired someone to join in on the fun, I can't wait to see what you come up with, just don't for get to use one of Mo's images. If you need more inspiration don't forget to visit the rest of the teams blogs they really out did themselves and came up with some great ideas just click HERE to see what they came up with and as Pat always says, don't forget to leave them a little love.
