Simon Says........Anything BUT a Card!!!

Anything other than a card is this week's challenge and  we (the DT ) are using either 7 Gypsies or Maya Road Products  - I chose  7 Gypsies Album Book Journal to use to make as a Birthday Book - mine lost when I moved house and have been managed with note books or little noted in the computer - so - I decided it was time I treated my self to a new one.


I decided to deep the very simple of the 'Book' it will kept on the shelf and will be used regularly so doesn't need anything that will catch.I just used Magnolia's Fairy Dust  and the Mini Edwin - sent by a Friend but I could't find to link!! I use Tim Holtz's Paper StackVintage Shabby and Spellbinders Fancy Tags, all inked with Distress.
I used a Stampendous alphabet and coated it with Glossy Accents.  Tim's Corners will used when I they have gone into hiding whilst I was having my Craft room been blitzed and renewed.


       





I managed to colour one of pages - I really thought I was going to finished - HaH!!! I think I live at Cloud 1, Cuckoo Land!! Just 11 more pages to go!!!




The image for the outside image is the sweet Sarah Kay - Sweet Romance, I am coloured them with my
Prismacolors and the papers are Bo Bun.y - Welcome  and I used the borderI coloured the border by  Martha Stewart - Pansy and added  Magnolia - Swirl and Magnolia - Swirly Lace.
Memory Box Cherry Blossom and  Fancy Blossons - I love these as they don't take up too much bulk and are so pretty. Heart Doily used as   complete the page.

Hi Heather!!!

Thanks for popping by my blog today. I feel like I have been so out of the blog world for months; we recently moved a little further west in Loudoun County. We are still getting settled in our new home and we love it. We are mostly unpacked, but the house needs some work (nothing major) and we work on it a little bit each week. Hopefully in a few years it will be exactly the way we want it :)

I perused your recent posts; your work is impeccable and beautiful as always! Have a great weekend, Friend!
