tiny book...

i did it again.  joined a swap that was so outside my comfort zone.  and after i got over the initial drama of dreading it, i actually loved it.  one of my favorite swaps, i dare say, ever!!  it was a one on one swap, so we got a name of the person we were going to send our project to.  the thing we had to do was make a tiny book.  there were only a few rules.  one-had to be tiny.  less than 3 inches.  two-had to have six pages.  three-had to have stamping on it somewhere.  seemed easy enough.  right?  no way.  i thought about it forever!  (ok, not forever, but a while...)  and i finally quit thinking so much and just started making it.  then it just sort of ended up being finished.  and i think it turned out pretty good.  i love the colors.  and i have a good idea that the recipient (who i can't say yet!) will love it, too.  at least i hope she will.

it's friday ('bout time!)  so don't forget to visit the unity blog.  a lot of great projects to look at and you may have a chance to win some unity goodness!!   so go see what the friends with flair peeps have going on!
