More of My "Happy Little Moments" Altered Book

Happy Monday, my friends! I'm back with an update on my Happy Little Moments Class! After putting my kit together and cutting into my old book, I was ready to keep going with my pages. Then I realized that I had a couple of other projects with deadlines that I really HAD to finish first. So I was a good girl and did that! lol Then during my time on the treadmill on Friday a fun theme for my book suddenly came to mind. Yes...I am happy to say that I have now bonded with my new treadmill and I'm actually doing a lot of productive thinking during our time together. A few of you will understand what I mean when I say that it's quite impossible to nod off and have a nap while using it! lol
Sorry...back to my book :o) So, instead of Happy Little Moments, I have entitled my book "Happy Little Collections". In it, I will document several fun little collections I have gathered. Most of you won't be very surprised to hear that I don't have photos of these collections but that's never stopped me, has it? I will just put in photo mats where I intend to put photos. One of the fun things I discovered is that some of these collections are well represented with my die and stamp collections. You'll see what I mean as we get further into the book. I'll also make a real effort to get some photos finished and included!
For those of you that want to continue to follow along, I have created a new Label in my side panel called "Happy Little Moments Class". You can just click on that to take a peak at the progress after these posts are lost among other posts. Okay, so here are a couple of photos of my front cover. I hope you like it! :o)
