One sheet wonder!!

Boy are we spoiling you all offers...and now.....ME lol!!!

My offering for today is my *one sheet wonder* a maze book, created from one sheet of 12x12 (from the October 2006 PS Kit), and a few random left overs (also from this kit).

The cover of the book was made by literally covering 2 scraps of chipboard (the back of a notepad actually!) with the green patterned paper, adding a photo mounted on a scrap of the blue card, punching 4 flowers from the dark green paper and writing on a title.
I then covered the whole thing in a glue based varnish to make it a bit more durable in Nana's handbag! Ditto the back cover.

The inside pages use lots of photos,
doodling and a few more punched flowers.
I also created a couple of pockets (in the pages which were originally the paper's corners) and used a round punch to cut a notch. This makes it easy to slide the extra photos in and out of the pockets.

I'm sending the book to the *Nana* in question as a thankyou for bringing the little monster to see us.

I bet you can think of someone who would love a little reminder of a weekend they've spent with you...or of thier own *special monster*...
Have a good crafting week and I'll be back on Thursday...but do check out all the other DT members in the meantime...we're not called *The Magnificent Seven* for nothing!! hee hee

PS...if you don't know how to make a maze are some instructions!
