My Pink Designer Post

Hi Everyone!  I hope you're having a nice week so far.  Today is My Pink Designer Post day!  This month our challenge was...

Theme: How many can you use???!!!!
Use as many My Pink Stamper stamps from any set(s) on ONE project. It can be a card, scrapbook page or mini book. Let's see who can use the most stamps! 

I have to say...best challenge EVER!  I had so much fun with this and immediately knew what I wanted to make.  I've had this idea for awhile now, so this gave me the perfect motivation to create it. :)  I must warn you though, there are a lot of pictures and details to this project, so I apologize if my post is long. I used eleven My Pink Stamper sets for my book.

A little background:  When I was a little girl, I used to attend AWANA (which was a wonderful children's program at church). During our singing time, there was always one song that was my favorite....maybe it was because of my own situation of being in a wheelchair, but I loved the idea that we are all created special.  Each time it played, I would sing my little heart out.  It was called "The Butterfly Song".   Here is the link if you'd like to hear it...
So, I decided to make a mini children's book.  The words to each part of the song are in pockets between the pages, and then I found the perfect My Pink Stamper sentiments to go with each page.
