The Patio Project!

As we all know some things end up being bigger projects than expected.  We have been putting in a patio at my daughter's house and what should have been a week long project has turned into a month long project.  I won't go into the details of all the set-backs but I knew for sure I needed a mini-book to document this long process so I made a mini book and attached it to a scrapbook layout.

I used a brick embossing folder on the cover of the mini book to give it the look of the pavers.  I then used one of the many wonderful cutting files available from "The Cutting Cafe" to embellish it.  I chose to use the "Garden Stand Ups" file.  There are many more cute components in the file but I chose to use just a few.  Here is the link to the file:http://thecuttingcafe.typepad.com/the_cutting_cafe/2013/02/garden-stand-ups-templates-cutting-files.html

If you are looking for a wonderful selection of cutting files head on over to "The Cutting Cafe"!
You won't be disappointed!
