LESSology September challenge - Reading Time - My Instagram Book!

Hi there! 
Today I'd like to share with you something I've been working on for ages.
But FINALLY finished for our 'reading' challenge at LESSology:
 Originally it was a book from a local church
It was a sort of diary as to the events on in 2014.
 I really liked some of the images inside, but I didn't need nor want a diary from last year.
For ages it sat. Then I thought how I ADORE my Instagram photos, but never print or scrap them.
So, this has become a repository for these photos.
They cover all areas of my life.
From our garden, to pretty things - just stuff I like to take photos of.
Like food!
  As you can see, it's not a fussy or fancy book. The focus is the photos.
However, I did 'switch' it up a bit on some pages.
 I even tried a bit of 'zentangle'. This book is all over the show. A bit like me at times!
 Even so, I love it.

  Hope this inspires you. 
I know you're going to LOVE this challenge.
The DT girls have come up with some brill interpretations of it.Can't wait to see yours!
Come join us at LESSology this month
&, as always ~
Happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  18. Lizzy I love this wonderful take on the importance of books in out lives. I have been looking at an online course going will I/won't I and realised that I really love to buy, devour and then look at again good old fashioned books. There's nothing like turning a page...a frisson of inspiration and then the tumble to experiment and play.
    Such a wonderful idea to personalise and give to those who are important to you!
