Binder Mechanisms, where have you been all my life?{photo heavy}

Forgive the photos, they were taken in the basement because I was too lazy to take them anywhere else. Hey, I've been creating all day, I haven't even showered, and I am still in my pjs.  But when the creative juices are flowing, you have to squeeze the fruit.
 I picked up Tim Holtz's binder mechanisms on Monday, I've been wanting to my hand at altering a hardcover book. I found a few hardcovers at thrift stores. I had to cut the pages out of them, which wasn't easy because I don't like to hurt books. But after the initial discomfort, I got over it. I found this book, The Men in Your Life, I didn't even see what it was about, but I thought it would make a great book about the men in my life. I used my For The Record kit from Echo Park. Love it!



 And I made this flower with some ribbon.
 I also picked up this book, because I loved the cover. The couple dancing! So cute!

 I used a House of 3 digital kit, I printed the papers myself. For the pages, I used one of those chipboard scalloped square albums from the dollar section of M's. I embossed on them and then sprayed Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and homemade mists on the pages. You can see a close up farther down.




 And when I am all cleaned up, I will have myself a little snack of Easter Bark. Made with milk chocolate, peanut butter, white chocolate with green colouring, mini eggs, and star sprinkles.  Super easy to make, super easy to eat!
