Casino Themed Memory Book

Hi friends,
Today I wanted to share the Casino-themed memory book I created for our school secretary. She loves going to the casinos so I knew she'd appreciate a slot machine as the cover! I didn't think to take p
ictures before I added the clear cover newt suit-- so sorry for the glare. I added 3 bling crowns -instead of the 7-7-7, because she's thought of as the "queen" of our school. I used my nesties to create the opening where the coins fall out of. I added the swirly bling on either side as a decorative touch. The lever does pull down, but you need to add your own sound effects!

Here are a couple of pictures of what the i
nsides pages look like. Everyone just wrote down their well wishes. I embellished it with stickers & ribbon.

Here's a picture of the binding ( a peek at the front & back covers) The book was rather thick!

Here's the back cover:

Let me say that I remember why I don't scrapbook now! IT"S A LOT OF WORK!!! I have a need to feel like I accomplished and completed something, which is why I craft & card-make. But everyone absolutely flipped out over it! Which made me very happy and feeling like all the work it took to put this together was worthwhile.

I wish I had better pictures, because it really did come out super cool. decompression sickness But I hope you get an idea of what it looked like, Thanks so much for peekin' today! I'm off to work on end-of-the-year school "stuff" --gotta go!
