Isn't it difficult to scrap for teens, tweens, and whatchamacallits? Yeah. Sigh. Spoken by the mother of a 13 year old.
 
My daughter went to Disneyland for Girl Scouts and I thought TWINE is a great way to make a cute book for her about her trip. Twine and neon. Yay. Yay? 
 
 
I am not sure I like the whole 80's thing coming back BUT it was pretty easy to make custom embellishments with my Epiphany Crafts shape tools to match the Heidi Swapp Neon stickers I got for the book. And black and white are always a winner!!!!!!
 
 
I made a little video showing how I did all that I did — enjoy! I also added gorgeous blinged out Connie Crystals to the spine of the book and a couple small Want2Scrapcrystals to make mickey heads on my Square 25 Epiphany Crafts charms. Easy peasy!
