A new Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge today!

Hi all! Today's challenge is an awesome one! I loved every aspect of it...
I even tried something new--so be gentle--I am sure my next book will be better-but I am quite happy with how this one turned out-being it is my first one!
I got inspired to try making a book from over at Emma's Creative Time for Me. She made the most adorable little "boo" book! So I made a "fall" book to go with todays challenge at Fresh Brewed Designs!
What is the challenge?
Sept 15 Challenge DARE
D-Distressing
A-Autumn
R-Ribbon
e-Embellishments
I know it is hard to tell-but I did do a little distressing--and I even did lots of STRESSING! Heehee! So here is my book-

Aren't these digital images just the cutest?!! I love fall--and these are just so much fun!
For more info on how to make books with your cricut--check out Emma's blog! I found out that the cardboard I was trying to use needs to used with deep blade attachment-which I do not have --YET-(so I had to cut out the cardboard by tracing, which is why my letters are not at the end of each "page" as they should be! )but she has another alternative to use cereal box cardboard--which I will be trying real soon! 
Thanks Heather for the adorable images--and Emma for the cricut and gypsy info!

I love your wordbook, it looks great! The images are super cute. I like this idea of making a little book that is for a season or even a holiday. Now you have my wheels turning. Anyway, great job and thank you for sharing.

Fabulous book Rhonda! A friend of mine made me one for Riley. The book spells out her name and each page is decorated and has room for photos.
I think you did a fantastic job for your first book!
