Small US chipboard word

Hi, it's Sharon here.
I have been playing with another chipboard word this week. This time I used this US word, which is 50mm long.

I decided to use it on the cover of a minibook about my two sons, which is full of photos taken of them in Orlando this year.

I kept it simple and painted the word with acylic paint and then stamped a grid pattern on top once dry.

I have filled the book with photos and included loads of journalling pages too. I have completed some however I plan on getting the boys to write things in it too. They have made a start but between writing Christmas cards for their classes and doing homework etc I can't expect them to do it all in one sitting. ( more to the point they probably won't do it all in one sitting!! LOL)

More photos of the inside of the book is on my blog here

This will be my last post until after Christmas so I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I hope that everyone wakes up to a stocking full of crafting goodies.

Great book and your overstamped word looks great on the cover! Perhaps the boys could do a page at a time with their advent calendar or something?

Good idea Joanne :-)
They only just got their Santa letters written last night LOL
They will hopefully write in it during the holidays.
