Scrap A Book (5)

Today I’m bringing you my 5th and final post in my Scrap A Book series.

Today’s book is super special to me. It is the first time I was a beta reader and the first time my name went into the acknowledgements of a book. It will forever be a milestone in my blogging life. This series is one of my favorites and the author is someone I am happy to call a friend.

Breathe, Annie, Breathe is my favorite Miranda Kenneally book. Not only do I love Jere with everything in me, I love the struggle that Annie goes through and the changes she makes to help herself deal with loss and fear.  It is such a strong story and one I think every one should read. (It also just so happens to be only $2.99 for the Kindle right now.)

Fun fact…A line from my review is listed under the Editorial Reviews on Amazon.

Scrap A Book (4)

Today I’m bringing you my 4th edition in my 5 post series…Scrap A Book. Today’s book is one of my FAVORITES for a few years ago. I have read it multiple times and have loved it every time. It is such a great book about friendship and falling in love and finding yourself.


Open Road Summer by Emery Lord was one of my favorite reads of 2014. I not only got to fall in love with Matt Finch but with Emery Lord and her fantastic story telling. Not to mention the perfect friendship depiction found in the pages. Because of all of that I was so happy to be able to some up with my “Scrap A Book” creation for this amazing book.

Have you read Open Road Summer yet?

Scrap A Book (3)

And I’m back with the 3rd edition of Scrap A Book. (You can find the other two editions HERE and HERE).

When coming up with another book I wanted to do I thought back to books I love and things that have stood out to me in those books. My mind kept going back to one book that I read a long time ago but I still remember some of the descriptions and the cupcakes. Oh those cupcakes. I have never craved cupcakes more than when I read Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler. So today I give you my “scrapbook” page for Bittersweet. With winter fast approaching (ALL THE TEARS) this is the perfect book for you to pick up. Plus there is a cute hockey boy in it. 🙂

Scrap A Book (2)

Welcome to my second edition of Scrap A Book, the post were I do a digital scrapbook page of books I have loved.

In Scrap A Book (1) I of course had to do Anna and the French Kiss because DUH! Well this time we are switching it up and doing one of my fave reads of 2016, A Court of Mist and Fury. This was a really fun book to scrap. There is so much beauty in this book and I had so many option to go with. I decided to stick to what I thought was the important parts, but really I could have filled this page with SO MUCH!

With further a do…

Scrap A Book (1)

It is no secret that I am currently huge into paper crafts. Pocket letters, card making, flip books, post card making, all my things. But I also used to be into scrapbooking. It’s been a long time since I did one and since I’m not a huge picture taker it isn’t really in my wheelhouse anymore, but I do get inspired for my other crafty projects by it. And it has now inspired me to use it in my book world. I give you the birth of “Scrap A Book”.

I started to think about scrapbooking and how it really about a focus element, whether it be a picture, a patterned paper, a piece of ephemera. You take that one element and you make it shine. It made me wonder how I could do that with a book. Make that book shine with all the little things that make it so great,  and I came up with this idea. I don’t know how often I will post these (of if people will even care), but I’m starting off with the book you all know I will start off with.

Without further ado, my first Scrap A Book:
