All About Coffee and Me!

 Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is a fun one!  All About Me is the theme!  That means you can make a project for YOU or about YOU!  

I chose to make a book for all my coffee quotes and art journaling!  Seemed perfect as I sit and drink my 3rd travel mug full of coffee for the day... and it's not even noon!  ; )

This very fun, quick, easy little book is perfect for all my coffee journaling! It measures 5 3/4 inch square and has 10 pages of mixed media paper.  Get ready for some coffee themed pages in the future!  Check out the video below for a tutorial!
