Knock Knock Who's There?

Here's a mini album I designed for April class called "Knock Knock Who's There?"
and the inside...
Mini Album: "Home is where the Heart Is"
The cover is supposed to look like a door (hence the corny class name)....but somehow I think the 'vegetation' took over and you can't quite make out the door anymore....haha. Don't know why by I think my cover looks very 'hobbit' house like...

Necessity is the Mother of Happy Accidents:
Q: What happens when you don't have enough metal keyplates / keyholes to give to people in classs?
A: You engineer a happy accident and make one of your own!

Make Your Own Keyplate / Keyhole:
1. Find a chipboard circle/ small piece of chipboard.
2. Using your cropadile (or hole punch), punch one big hole in the chipboard, then one smaller hole below.
3. Using your craft knife, cut 2 slits joining the big hole to the little hole to try and make a keyhole shape
4. Emboss chipboard piece with metallic embossing powder and distress with ink - voila!

Just thought you'd like to know....the original chipboard covers I was assigned had pink and white polka dots on them....bleagh! So I covered them all up with cardstock and used the inside of the cover (which had nice woodgrain on it) instead - haha!

And before I go, here's a cute joke my son told me which seems to fit today's theme:

Knock Knock.
Who's there?
Peas
Peas who?
Peas to meet you!
(trust me, its very cute when he says it)
