I was brave when I used my sewing machine to bind this book together. I broke my last machine binding a book together. Eeek!!! I was feeling risky! Lucky for me, it worked! But I love love love the colors in this line. It is a crate paper line from last year, but I'm trying to challenge myself to get through some of my "older lines" I talk all the time about how hard of a time I have using my cute products. I just let them sit there and every once in a while pull them out and ooh and aww over all the cuteness (insert awkward laugh)!
