Pages must be 12 x 12" and contain the title and author of the book somewhere on the page.  It can be designed as a cover or contain parts of the story, using any techniques you like....altered art, stamping, die-cuts, etc. it's up to you and your imagination.

Dad's birthday

It was my dad's birthday yesterday, so I needed to make a card for him.  This has given me a chance to make a card for the Scrapbook Sisters challenge and use my new Cuddle Upz CD.

The giraffe images were printed on photo paper then cut out and mounted on beige A4 card folded into a gate-fold card.  Dark brown pearl card was used inside and then message and sentiment added on top of this.

Long time

  Well it's been rather too long since I've posted anything on here.  Main reason internet connection on downstairs pc....still waiting for eldest son to fix it....( won't be happening in the foreseeable future then!!!)
  Was busy making Halloween costumes for shop crop, which included not only my spider outfit, but also Karen's pumpkin one too.......still had some laughs doing so and also at crop itself........well worth the lack of sleep!!
  Have finished some of my 'in miniature projects' from Karen's classes which I only recently started and have finished several scrapbook pages from various classes, so my ufo's aren't as numerous as they could be. 
  Also attended Julie's altered art class which has again made me realise I miss painting and need to do more of it.
  Will add photos hopefully later today of finished items.....
