A Little Book of "Inspiration"

Happy Wednesday!!! 
I almost started to giggle, because I think of a TV Commercial of a Camel walking around an office building just dying for someone to guess what day it is.... "Happy Hump Day".... LOL  Alright, enough of that silliness.
It was my turn to post over on The Digi Bells Blog today, So I thought I'd share the "Inspiration" here as well.
I've been playing around with different handmade "Smashbook" ideas, and while doing that, something crossed my mind, and I thought how fun it would be to create the prettiest coffee table book.  And So that's exactly what I set out to do.
On the front, I used Elisabeth Bell's adorable Digital Stamp called
"Miss You Love You" 
of course you can find here in Elisabeth Bells Digital Collection.
I've really enjoyed working with so many fun and inspirational quotes. 
Here is a view of what I did with them on the inside.  There are a total of 100 quotes inside.  =)

It may be a little time consuming, but I have really been enjoying the fun of this project.  I just may make some of these and give them as gifts. 
The pages of this book were not inked to be this color, but instead, I used Pink cardstock, and sponged them with bleach.  Once that was done, I wrinkled them up, and then opened them up flat to dry.  It really looks cool I think. 

I've also colored this darling little girl using both Copic Markers, and Prisma Colored Pencils.  I've even colored her shirt to have a similar marble effect like the paper, (but without the bleach)

Challenges I've entered:
