Groundhog day?

It feels like it, here is the challenge book again (see previous post), this time with all its ribbons and with a couple of wings and a crown added to the front cover, I think the front cover is finished! I inked over the gold clock hands, and the cogs and wings, might take it off the wings and do something else.
I used the Time background to make the covers, and the Clocks full page background (both from The Cutting Cafe) to make the pages, which I creased to make pockets and lined with either clocks on purple or green card. 
I made some slips which are currently supposed to be one per challenge, you write the date it ends, the blog, and the details. When you complete the challenge you move it to the "DONE" pocket, when winners have been picked it can be recycled, or kept if won maybe in the spare pocket at the back.

I have collected a load of links to challenge blogs in my sidebar, I found a whole bunch of new ones yesterday too. I spent ages looking down the list to see if there is a new challenge, trying to remember if I entered the last one, or if there was a challenge I wanted to enter, then visiting them. When they post additional posts between challenges I lose the challenge, especially monthly challenges! So I thought this way I could keep track of challenges I hope to enter, and enter them in time, not have to hunt around for a blog that was doing ribbons and lace only to find I missed it, or couldn't find it again!
I am already thinking that maybe I should have created a page a day, and that would make the whole thing easier, and maybe not have a slip for every challenge but one for a blog, that can be put back with the new challenge so used again until full - I might have to try that!
If I start over with a seven day and one month book I will give this one away - if anyone wants it! Hmmm, would I have to make it 14 plus 2, for days of the week a challenge starts - or ends, and a done pocket for each day, and month? This could grow into a big book! I will just try this one for now and see how I get on.

Don't forget to hop over to Quirky Crafts and enter your make by Saturday!
