I finished it!!!!

It took FOREVAH but it was SO well worth it. I cased the book design from Leigh O'Brien who makes those fab books for the SCS 100 color challenges. I was searching for ages for the PERFECT paper to cover my Bella Book with. I swear I went to 100 different scrapbook stores within a 50 mile radius and I still couldn't find anything I wanted. Then I was checking out the photos of how she covered her SU ATC books and I gasped at this gorgeous hawaiian style paper in my favorite colors!!! I HAD TO HAVE IT!! So I emailed her and she was such a doll, she tracked down the paper AND the website for me so I ordered it!!!! Next was getting my hands on the perfect matching prima flowers, the jumbo book plates and the ribbon. When everything arrived in the mail, I went to work!

Isn't it just adorable?!?!?!?!?! Ok so here is a looksie on what wonders await inside. :)

Oh I could have shown you each page but I think you get the idea. It holds 30 bellas!!!!! YIPPEEEE! So there you have it, my final Bella Book! Ahhhhh, now I must go stamp!!!
