Hope everyone had a safe & happy new year's celebration last night! We managed to stay up 'til midnight, which is something of a miracle around here! The hazards of working full time... up early... to bed early... hard habit to break...
This week's theme over on Simon Says Stamp & Show is to show something from yesteryear. My current project couldn't be more perfect for this!
I've been spending lots of time over the Christmas/New Year's Holidays on this mini book, which I started when I took a class with Jenni Bowlin last week at The Queen's Ink! We were able to select from an assortment of antique book covers (front & back, hardback variety), and then created pages to insert into the book during class.
Since then, I've been embellishing and adding photos from my trip to England! Here's a few pages that I've completed to far...
|The train platform in Hels' town of Wellingborough - I've arrived!|
|Gates of Buckingham Palace|
|Class with THE Linda Elbourne - photos of our finished cards in top section, and me & Linda below - I'm all bundled up in my most bulky warm sweater because it was FREEZING!|
Best wishes to everyone for an awesome 2011! I'm so fortunate to have met so many incredible people through the blogosphere - what an amazing gift! Thanks so much to everyone who has stopped by to check out my little corner of the world, and especially to those who take the time to leave a comment - they really to mean a lot to me, and it's how I get to know you! Keep 'em coming!
