Love notes meander book!!!! Tag-a-riffic team 2 march challenge entry!

Hello everybody!!!I have had such a lovely sunday, the weather has been gorgeous today. I spent the day playing with my boys in the garden and finishing off my entry team 2's march challenge on the cricut mb, we are called Tag-a-riffic Team 2. Here is the link where the gorgeous entries from the team I am on are going, please check it out as there are some beautiful cards on there already!

And this is my meander book for my entry towards the team!! I am calling it love notes because of the way I wanted to decorate my alternate pages!!!
The pages of the book are made out of my 12x12 sheet of double sided cardstock, I made my covers with ceral boxes cut to 4x4 size. They are covered with my find at my local d.i.y. store (B&Q) and got a scrap of leathery looking wallpaper to cover the cereal box squares!!! it even had false stitching on so I used that for a 'ribbon' to go across the outside of the book.
The tags inside are made out of some left over burgundy pearlescent card I had in my box of cut offs, I inked the egdes, added a bit of leathery string for the pulls and drew journalling lines on the backs with a gold pen.
The heart stamp came free on a magazine and the embossing is my cuttlebug script embossing folder. I inked over the embossing with a charcoal ink pad to bring out the detail.
I don't know what I will use it for yet but my almost 9 year old has his eyes on one being made for him now!!!!
I have 4 birthday cards to make for the weekend and my uk crafters thread challenge on the cricut mb to do for tuesday so I will be a busy bunny!!!
Thankyou so much for popping in xxxx
