Hello .....

WOW!!  It's been a minute since I was in here. I been sick and trying to catch up on things. I made a altered composition book and a matching photo mat and tag. I'm really happy with them.

Below is my tag and photo mat. It was for a swap and I had to make them according to my partners wants. She wanted one that went for a "black tie date". I had and still have no idea what a black tie date is or was, so I made it pure black and white.

Now here comes my altered composition book. I used DCWV adhesive backed paper to cover it. It was was easier then trying to glue it.The paper is white with black dots on it. I only covered the book and not the binding. I put a piece of black lace across the middle then topped that with a string of pearls. I also put the pearls along the binding. I took a piece of white lace and put it under the black lace. Attached a handmade silk rose and sheer ribbon. The flower has a silver leaf attached with 2 stick pens also. I glued a brad that says "believe" above the black ribbon and attached a charm that says "never never give up" with a black flower brad to the white lace.

 So what have you been working on ?

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I love how the tag especially turned out. Now I'm inspired to try making a similar ATC. Thanks!!
