New "vintage fashion" blank book I'm workin' on...

  a work in progress. this is a second one I started from a blank book I bought at $ store. The gorgeous vintage fabric came in from a round robin buddy of mine who I am also participating in a round robin with. I'm really getting into making these books! I worked on this one this afternoon. I've actually been pretty fatigued today...(it's been quite a week!) but it was nice to have something sitting there to work on while watching a movie with my hubby on sat nite. more soon! I really want to learn to "embellish" altered books and I'm reading up more on that. Oh, my youngest wants to do a RR with me! she wants to salvage the book that I damaged with the fabric softner sheets! can you believe it???? she's only 8!!! she made her first chunky book. it's on my flickr. she made a page in my friends book and then I did one last nite. now it's her turn. she signed in on the front page and everything! I still get a kick out of her asking me to use the "gesssso"....!!! she's my little altered art princess! ~L. Posted by Picasa

Your hurt toe looks beautiful! In fact your entire foot is a 10!

Hey you! I LOVE this. The black fabric looks so good with the photo.
Sorry I havent emailed you back. I broke my foot a week and ahalf ago and have been in bed in pain. The hubs took all last week off to play mother.
Anywhoo, I just missed you today and thought I would pop over and see what you've been up to.
Love the art fest with your girls. How very cool!
Talk to you soon,
Love,
a.
