Wonderful Wednesday!

Today, my project for the Exploring Cricut blog is a composition notebook altered into a Prayer Journal:
I picked up a bunch of these composition notebooks when they were on sale during Back-to-School season, and this is the first one I've had the time to play with.  I covered the front and back covers with kraft paper, glued a strip of thicker cardstock (Bazzill Bling/eyelet punch) down the spine, and decorated the cover.  My church has a Secret Sister program, and I am going to give this to my Secret Sister as a gift this coming Sunday.

I used the New Testament Cricut Cartridge for the Bible and Dove cuts, and I used the font from Winter Woodland and welded the shadow on my Gypsy.  I used Glossy Accents on the Bible cover to make it look more 'book-ish'.  <<-- I love making up words :)

Too bad I can't sign my name to it... It is a secret, after all!

Have a crafty day!
