Challenge Me Monday #77, Back to School!!! (PIC HEAVY)

It's time for another Challenge Me Monday over at FCCB! And since my LAST DT project was admittedly not one I made fresh for the challenge....I've been able to get back into my craft room (newly organized!!) and create this AWESOME number book that I think I will give to my nephew for Christmas!! The challenge this week is "Back to School" and we were asked to create a project with numbers or letters in it! I bought some Acrylic mini albums on clearance for a $1 apiece at ACMoore a while back, and haven't used them at all! I thought that this challenge would be PERFECT to put them to use!! The mini album is about 6"x6" for the covers, and 4"x4" on the inside pages, so I was a little nervous at how the characters would look at such a small size, since they are so detailed. I was extremely happy with the final result! Even though they are detailed, and some turned out better than others, I was impressed with the cutting action of my E, and YAY! they actually look like Sesame Street Characters!! :) For some things that were just too small to cut out (especially Zoe's jewelry...) I used some Liquid Pearls. Here you go!

Big Bird made the cover...he actually looks like he's counting his fingers!

HOLY WOW Maquel!!!!!! That's amazing!!! A friend of mine has the Sesame Street cartridge and I've helped her put some of those together before...the pieces are TINY...especially cut at 2-3inches, like you did!!! I am SO impressed!!! Your colors are perfect too!! And it looks like you gave your Gelly Roll pen quite a workout!!

You DO owe me a letter! Hurry up...I want to hear all the stuff you've been eluding to! haha!!!

Wow 10 times over this is fantastic. You put so much love into this. The child that gets this would be very lucky in did. Makes me think I should get busy and make 3 for my granddaughters.
