FOLLOW ME TO
MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Mother and Daughter book

I had lots of fun making this little book... it's about 3" x3" and has lots of places to add tags, sentiments and pictures inside.  I used some double sided rose pink and cream scrap booking paper that my pal Chriss kindly shared with me.

I punched a lace border for underneath this gorgeous image from Crafty Individuals and also made a flower from punched hearts.


I wanted the book to look aged so grunged  the spine, lace border and flower edges with black stazon.
I love creating something pretty and this ticks all the boxes for me as I am soooo into 3d and paperfolding.... like you didn't know...lol
I am entering this book into two challenges:-

Sir Stampalot challenge.... which is 'Punches'
Anything goes challenge .... which is 'Pearls and lace, pink and cream'

Thanks for looking
hugs
