Altered book challenge

Hi everyone! There's a new challenge site in town called LESSology where they give you challenges in which you use something 'recyled up'. Their first challenge is an altered book challenge. When I saw this I just loved the idea. For my book, I purchased an old book and then I started to fill it with random stuff about me and or that I like. I decided to stick to a certain color choice because it's what I like creating with at the moment.  On my first page, about drinking coffee, I used the coffee filter that I had that morning, as one of my upcycled items, rather then throwing it out. Hope you like!

As always, thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Hugs!
