Read with a grain of Salt...and a margarita

I love making sassy/snarky quote books for my friends, and they seem to love them too. They are meant to make you smile and laugh not to hurt or offend anyone!!


I picked out on of my favorite pages from the book to enter into 

I love tearing away the top layer of corrugated cardboard to reveal all that yummy texture. I added some tissue paper, a little bit of torn gelli prints, washi tape, stencils and a cutout from a magazine and finished it off with my own handwriting. The other page has the exact same elements except it uses a stamped image instead of a magazine image.

IF you want to see the rest of the book: I made a short slideshow of it.

This is awesome, Sandee. I have a whole journal dedicated to the snarky and sassy "quotes" -- you know, those things we think but won't say out loud or online. Sharing these sentiments with your close besties in this way is a wonderful answer to "getting it out" without offending. Great job!
