The Use It Up Pledge ~ Finished Book!

YAY!! I made it 🙂 If you had asked me yesterday afternoon if I would get this finished on time, I would have said no way!, I really didnt think that I would get this book finished this weekend.     I worked like a Trojan, last night and it all came together so quickly that I was able to get it all finished 🙂

So… what now?   Well I have recorded a video over on Youtube which details all the pages and the thought behind the creation of the mini and i’m also having a bit of a giveaway, as promised a few days ago on THIS post!
