Happy St. Patrick's Day

Jaynie put on some bits of green to celebrate the day, little sequins earrings, a shamrock necklace, an elastic bracelet and a green carnation.

I've been playing with the basic Paint program on my computer, cutting, pasting and resizing scrapbook paper images to make book covers.

This is the easiest one that I put together.  Just resized a striped paper into a thin strip for the spine, pasted it onto a rectangle, picked a color from the strip and filled it in.

It's fairly simple but I think that it makes a nice looking book.

Here are some of the books that I finished for Jaynie. 

I have a lot more cutting, folding and pasting to do.

This is Jaynie's favorite, a journal

(ignore my fingers, it was hard to get at the right angle to photograph)

with pages that she can write on.

I cut the pages from the bound edge of a pad.

Thank you for visiting, Mary
