WOYWW#114, WOTT#18 and an easy ABC book

Hi friends! It's time for What's on Your Workspace Wednesday and What's on Tap Tuesday, where I share the chaos that is my desk at the moment.


Around the periphery of the desk is the detritus that will eventually make another page in my mock Smashbook. I have little photos, restaurant flyers, a Playbill for the show we saw on Sat, et al. But in the center of the desk are the makings of a little ABC book I made for a friend's toddler. I found these K&Co playing cards on sale at Michaels and I soon came to realize why they were on sale. A couple of letters were misprinted, but I found a way to fix that. I punched holes through the cards, typed the ABC words on sticker paper then cut them and applied them to each alpha card. I had to customize the front and back covers with a little DCWV Grade School paper and Making Memories alpha rub-ons. Then thread all the cards through two rings and added a little monkey ribbon so that the little one could carry his book around with him more easily.





Thanks for peeking. I hope you'll share what's on tap by you today. If you are so inclined, link in below.

I wish you an A to Z great day!
