sneak peak inside RR book

Hi all! I'm workin' on a round robin altered book. I'm doing a "retro homemaker" kind of theme. It is way fun. I'm still learning. I started out doing another older book I got from an antique place....well, I ended up scrappin' it as the pages were coming unglued (my see..."Lucy" (that's decided she would freshen up the book by putting in softner sheets here and there and letting it set for a day). I started to work in the book a few days later and started gluing stuff down. then I would go back and it would peel away. I then used every glue in my "arsenal", even went out and bought PVA, the only one I didn't have. well, it happened again. then while talking to one of my RR friends it dawned on me that I had softened the pages with the sheets! I thought it was the humidity...(well I'm sure that didn't help), anyhoo, I was so stubborn about staying with the book until I figured it out. Well, anyway, I learned something,and I really like working on a clean slate (although I love the altered book look with the words in background). Oh well, more to learn, more to learn.

MOM update, all is well, took her for her check up yesterday and she is getting cast off tomorrow. WWWOOOOOHOOOO!!!! I am beside myself that she is well and happy. Hug your MOMMA today or call her if you can. I thank God that she is doing better. The doc called her the "bionic woman" yesterday, lol. Bless her heart!

Happy Day all!!!! I don't know how much I can post for rest of summer, but I will be poppin' in from time to time. I am thinking of all of you though! xxoo Lia
