When it was quiet in the store, I made this altered coin collectors book. Here's the Front, which needs a little something more...
Here's the back:
I found the book at an Estate sale 2 weekends ago, and couldn't wait to use it. I love that the circles are like little windows, each begging for a tiny collage inside.
So, the theme is love (ever so appropriate considering Valentine's day is coming up...). I made a collage on the left side, and on the right, filled the windows with tiny pictures, ephemera, glitter, pink pearls, posies and sweet, old-fashioned little phrases and words that relate to love.
I had a hard time reattatching the binding, and the tape got all covered with glitter, so I left it as is. Hope this gets you in the "mood". ..Er, for valentine's day, that is...
Also, here is the last of the 3 Petite Inspiration Boxes I got for the swap: This one is from Laurie. It is done in blues from the outside in... All the little embellies she added were in blue. My fave was the tiny matchbox of blue buttons...so sweet! Thanks, Laurie!
I LOVE doing swaps and so, I've decided to do one. Not yet, though. Stay tuned...(cue dramatic music and announcer with a deep, sexy voice) COMING SOON, TO A BLOG NEAR YOU (namely, mine!) ...a swap, AND a challenge!!!
I haven't ever done a blog challenge, so, I'm super excited to host one! Well, I guess I've hosted a swap before, either, so that makes me excited also...
