"All About Me" Blog-hop

This little hop around the blogs has been lovingly organised by Mel over at I Speak Melsh. She wanted us to have a look at All about Me at Big Picture Scrapbooking and see what we could come up with.
The class was an accordion book in a small tin but I didn't have a tin so I drew around an envelope I got in a Scrapagogo kit ages ago and made an accordion style book to go inside.

I've gone for" less is more" as the envelope will end up as part of my on going Book of Me. I've used the gorgeous Cosmo Cricket Early Bird paper in lime green and turquoise (two of my favourite colours), added a button as a fastener and punched some flowers with some bling added just because.
I've then added a few photos of me this year on the back along with some journalling.
I'm sorry about this photo but no matter how hard I try I can't get it to load landscape!!
Now you should have got to me via Rhinda at Gallo Organico who has a lovely little blog you should really take a look at. I'll now be passing you onto Ruth at Everyday Life of a Suburban SAHM
If you follow the links on each blog you will eventually end up right back where you started!!!
