Woot Woot!!!

Oh!!! I am so excited to tell you all this!!!
I am on Moda Bakeshop today!!!
ME!!! LOLA!!!
Go see my Easy Peasy Thelma and Louisy tutorial!!
The inside has pockets!

You can get 5 of these binder covers out of a Layer Cake.
I think these would be great for School, Inspiration Journals, Recipe Books, Scrap Books, etc.

If you don't know what a layer cake piece is, it's a 10" square of fabric.
You really need to make one!!

Wheeeee!!! This is so much fun!!
I am in Moda Heaven!!!!!
To Celebrate
I'm having a Giveaway!!!
I'll Be giving away:
1- the Covered Binder from the tutorial,
filled with some Lola Love!!!
2- A covered notebook,
out of the Simple Abundance line of fabric with more Lola Love!
Leave a comment and Random will pick the winner on
Sunday Aug. 23rd
Now....gimme a hug!! I'm so happy!!
