Fave Book - TAAFOMFT

The new challenge is up -- what's your favorite book?  I decided to take a different twist on this challenge...instead of a layout about my favorite book, I decided to give my favorite book a makeover.*  This is the Bible that my mom gave me for my 18th birthday.  I'm almost 30, and I'm starting to feel like the student Bible look is a bit dated.  Also, I've been keeping it in a zipper cover for years now, and for some reason, I have this mental thing where if I zip something up, it stays there undisturbed.  So I definitely need to get my Bible out of there.  Plus, I love an excuse to put contact paper on something.  Anything.  :)




So I used a little woodgrain contact paper, some cute gaffer tape, a plastic doily, and a felt flower I made a while ago and made this: 


So head on over to TAAFOMFT and check out what the other DT members did.  And then join us!  :)


*Please, please, please don't think I'm being superficial when I say that I want to give my Bible a makeover.  I promise I don't mean for it to sound that way.
