Explore Class 'Play Book' and some self portraits

Good afternoon everyone!  Whew it is HOT today.  I feel so bad for my Eric b/c not only is he out in the elements, he is a welder.  Poor guy.  He works so hard.  

I have some things to share with you about the Explore Class.  First is my 'Play Book' that I finished up today.  What I did was I actually took two mini books that are the exact same and glued them together to make the booklet bigger.  I then cut out some paper and pretty much made a book cover over it.  But I adhered that down to just to make sure it doesn't come off.
I didn't really get all crazy with it and go all out with the book, I used some stickers to spell out EXPLORE 2011.  Used a couple pieces of ribbon and then topped it off with a Cricut Paper Doll.  This was my first time using this cartridge and not having my Gypsy really messes me up size wise, but I managed to get her out.  
Here are the pictures of the book:
Can you tell that I made her shoes a weee bit big? LoL, well they were cut at 1/2 inch, the 1/4 inch was really way to small for this
 This is the inside flap in beginning of book and it looks like this in the end of book.  I just treated this like it was a book cover and worked really well.
 This is the back cover; as you can {maybe} see better from this view that there are tiny people on clouds on this patterned paper.  How perfect for this project/class I thought. 
I hope you like the book!

We were also supposed to take a self portrait which I did.  No printer ink at the moment though. Soooo, I am going to upload some of the pics I took.  Again, I hope you like...
 I am smiling behind my beloved Kodak 
 I have been leaning towards using this pic. {The one above this caption}
 I again really like this one too...ughhh
I like this one also, I look so serious though, but I like it too.  I actually can see that I 
am going to use this one when all is said and done.

I cannot pick out which one I want to use for the Play Book. The camera in the photo was supposed to be in there.  According to the directions.  This is me with 0 make-up on.  And you know what?  I don't feel embarrassed one bit to put these pics on my blog.

Please comment and let me know what you think of the album and other photos.  Take care and again thank you for stopping by.

Dropping in from Explore to say hi. Your book is cute and the SPs are great! I think the last one is the best as you are more in focus. :)
