or rather, a book made from scraps.I don't know how I manage to get so many scrappy bits of paper OR worse still why I hang on to them! I mean, some of them are really the tiniest of scraps and although some do end up in the bin I often end up putting them into a little box until the lid won't fit!(if I'm honest I don't just have one scrap boxlol) Sooo here is the result of my latest clear out. No theme, just a folded book of scraps although I have done contrasting sides.

                      The front and back cover

The oranges and greens

The purples and pinks

There is room in the middle for some post-it notes - if only I can remember where they are! 
There are quite a few Crafty Individuals images here and I used a combination of Kaisercraft, Paper Artsy and Artemio stamps to help the scraps out!!
At least it's kept me quiet while hubby is still recovering, hopefully he will be back to work next week!
Thanks for looking, Chris

This is a brilliant idea. It is the kind of thing I love to do. I also save scraps and I have just cut 12x12s into manageable pieces; the ends get curled up in the drawer.
Scrapbooks are good for storing ideas and gleaning ideas from!
