Movies, Songs or Books Challenge! and an announcement

the kraftjournal is having a challenge this week, like every Monday, I just haven't been able to play, but this week as I am setting myself to participate, this happened:

If you thought I was behind it, you thought wrong, LOL!!! there is someone else taking my place in this challenge.  Remeber Little Miss M, this is totally her idea.  I received a huge box yesterday, I heard her asking me for some scissors, not  any scissors but ones that could cut cardboard.  She has been trained on the proper use of scissors , never touch the fabric ones....Then she comes to me with this idea, that she wanted to do a notebook with the piece od folded box and that she had an idea for the closure, hummmm  Then she needed to "borrow" some papers to cover her book, you know, pretty papers.  So I gave her some Basic Grey...
see the begginings of the closure on her right side?

here's Diego sneaking a peek!
testing the closure before covering it up

And here is the finished piece inside and out

My only contribution was to use the sewing machine to sew some velcro for the closure
the back cover

The front cover, so  I am entering, now 7 year old Mercedes into the challenge!

The mall where the store is located has a Breast
Cancer Clinic, where they do mammograms . 
Wed.Sept 28, 2011@ 10:30 AM
Saturday Oct 1st @ 1:30 PM
