Round Robin Altered book

Whew lots going on this month.
Makes me happy.
So far in March:
-celebrated Dr. Suess birthday last week at work/school with Read across America we had alot of special guest readers visit the library.
-painted street mural downtown
-mailed my wires and hearts glitter and glue GPS trade today
-making charms for Madhatter charm swap
-working on my art saves Round Robin book.
Here is the cover I'm working on:

It will be green (art saves)because we are using what we have...
No buying new supplies for this book.
Plus art saves lives....
I'm making cover from old pair of levi's and will add some lace and things.
Inside: I recycled a used folder and sewed it inside the levi's...
added the canvas pages Carmen sent.
Having fun!
My muse is amusing me.
