Morning everyone

I am an early bird this morning.  I was wide awake at six o'clock so I snuck onto the computer, and the rest is history.

I have a large altered Notebook/Journal/organiser, whatever you want to call it, to share today.  I won't bore you with lots of photos today, but each divider inside was decorated too.  It took me forever!

I absolutely loved making this and went a bit over the top on the texture but I was so pleased with the finished result.

So, I have a question?  what is your favourite colour?  I am quite surprised how many people say blue when asking this question to my friends.  I didn't realise there are so many 'blue ladies' out there.

To be honest, this was made very much from my stash.  Being quite a large book I needed large paper so I dug out a pack that had been looking at me for simply ages.  You know how you buy things then think maybe it was a bad buy?  Then suddenly they come into use?  Well this was a case like that.  Because I decorated the dividers too I used a lot of the pack!  It certainly was not cheap to do.  But I got so much pleasure out of doing it.

I love using hearts and my heart dies are in constant use, as you will see here.  There is lots going on with this book, I decorated two little pegs and attached them to the hearts, we have lace and pearls and lots more besides.  I could go on and on but I won't.

I was really inspired by the colours of the Photo Challenge at Live and Love Crafts 
so would like to enter this into the Challenge.

I would also like to enter it into the Challenge at 613 Avenue Create
The theme here is Anything Goes

In addition I would like to enter the Challenge at Crafting from the heart

  3. This is definitely going to become a treasured heirloom in your family. It's so detailed, with loads of texture and the gorgeous lace, trims, etc on this. Just totally beautiful, and easy to see it was a labor of love. Glad you got to use up some 'schtuff' that you had thought was a bad buy. It was just waiting for a specific use to be beautiful. TFS (and yes, I'd be a blue person too)

  4. Oh my gosh, this is absolutely stunning!! The layers and details are amazing!! Wow!! What a gorgeous project this is!! Pink is my favorite color but I do love blue, too!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)
