I am now calm... honest *lol*
I've had a few days non-stop crafting except for the hospital trip on Wednesday - collecting my new walking sticks and wrist supports (hence no WOYWW for me this week) and the kitchen fire yesterday. Yes... the kitchen fire. Apparently I'm not the only klutz in the family, and my son is quite good at creating mess and mistakes too :) It's amazing that nomatter how sore and aching you feel, you can move like the clappers when your son calls out to you to say that there are flames in the kitchen hitting the ceiling. No harm done though - nothing a wet tea-towel and a bit of calm didn't control and dampen out the flames :)
So... back to the crafting...
I finished the book to go inside the book cover I altered. I used the Paris Night gcd papers, and a few MME loose sheets I had laying around. I used a full-length gatefold style... and here's a few pages for you to see how it turned out:
As well as the Tim Holtz Visual Artistry stamp collection (Urban Grunge - CSS25917), I used Art-Parts Limited Edition 'Captivated' stamp collection also (LE5533) and my usual La Blanche swirly stamp too :)
Each page (8 double-sided) is different and has a journalling spot, a tag, or both. The pages measure 7.25" by 4"... just enough to put a full size 6"x4" photograph and a description if needed.
So... as well as this project I have helped my daughter complete her year book - I was up till half three this morning! I've completed a Halloween Mini that I shall probably give away later in the year... AND... I have made the case for THE cutest mini ever. It's a Welsh dresser style box - all I have to do is put some feet onto it. It's full of crockery that is simply made from paper and smothered in glossy accents - though cutting out handles of cups that are only 8mm high is a bit difficult and not so simple *lol*
Wanna sneaky eensy teensy tiny preview...?
And that's all you're getting until later :)
Thanks for coming by... and I'm hoping to catch up with you all very soon!

Blogger has done it again! I've managed to post one comment, and I can't do anymore :(

And possibly a few more I've forgotten momentarily... I really have been reading your blogs and getting inspired, find myself smiling, wondering how you do it all, and a gazillion other things too... only blogger won't let me leave you a comment to say I've dropped by to say hi!
