My entry for the Cropping with the Stars Contest...

Well I did it again...I stayed up late every night that I could and designed, cut, tape and toiled over another acrylic 3-D book©. I stayed up all night on the eve of the deadline and entered this bugger, had only 2 1/2 hours of sleep before I had to go to work the next morning...only to find out that the contest was reopened and I could have taken more time on it, had a good nights sleep and entered 10 days later! Bummer. I wasn't going to tweak my book and then resubmitt my project because of sheer principle, but then on the {YES} eve of the final deadline, I stayed up until 3:00 am to retake pics, spruce up my instructions and resubmitted. And BY-GOLLY...I didn't win again! Next time...maybe. I think Admin put a big black check mark by my name and it wouldn't matter. LOL But it was fun, and I love the results. And my peeps that I know give me all the encouragement I need right now. Thanks everyone...Huggs to the bunch of you!!!
The first three pics are what I entered in the contest...and the last two are a few others that I took (sorry for the poor photography...) It is really hard to capture what it looks like in person, and the background lights reflected horribly in the acrylic. You can enlarge the pic by clicking on the photo for a better look at details.
...and these two additional pics show more details of the first scene.
Thanks for looking!!!


  1. Kathy, Your book is gorgeous!!! I love it, I got a bind it all for Christmas and have not used it. You've inspired me, to get it out. Where do you buy the acrylic? I signed up to follow you, check out my blog if you have time. Shari (cricutrookie)

  2. Awesome book. I would love to be able to do something like this. Where do you get the acrylic? How did you bind it?
    I have finally admitted that I do enjoy finding a great sale( much my hubby)as I do scrapping.

  3. Kathy, your book is awesome! Your puppy looks like my li'l Bailey! :-)

  4. Your book is gorgeous! In answer to your question about the crane, he interviewed there and they said we don't have a position now in WI, but have you ever heard of Trussville, AL. This was the week my husband started his job in Birmingham, AL. The rest is history, we all ended up here in AL. I LOVE YOUR ENTRY and have become a follower.

  5. LOVE your book! I like the way each page overlays on the acylic and everything just goes together. Great Job and TFS

  6. wow! amazing! creative! clever! and don't fret about the contest, there are a lot of things PC can't get right and picking deadlines and sticking to them is just one of them! i thought i was the procrastination queen but after reading about this project and the autograph book, i relinquish my title to you!!!
