wow, so awesome! i love the page racky made (i got a sneak peek!), and i adore the stamp on the back(she didn't show me that!)!

the page from phizzy is so fabulous! i love the book cover idea too - last week i acquired about 20 books for that purpose! did you cut it down to the square? that's the part i was worried about, i thought that edge would look wierd.... any tips are appreciated!!

Thanks, I'm glad you like it!

Yeah, I had to cut the book cover down which was quite difficult because since I only had one and I really didn't want it to go wrong. I loved the text and it seemed to fit well with the child's theme. I thought they looked mischievous so I wanted to have them with some toys and things. I've been using the images and text from the pages for about 14 years since I bought it at an antiques fair for my uni projects so I guess it's about time the cover was used too! Cheesy

I cut the cover into a square shape using a craft knife and then sanded the side and edges to make them the same shape and give them a worn look like the others. I guess you could also use a nail file for precise areas too.

thank you so much! i was wondering how hard it would be to cut, but if you can do it with a craft knife, it must not be too bad! i'll have to haul out my sandpaper i guess!

the theatre my mom's involved with just renovated, and found a ton of old books that they don't have space for... they were selling themas a fundraiser and i think i brought home at least 40 books, half of which are hardcover! i'm excited to play with them!

Hope the book-cutting-up is going well C_D! Cheesy

I have received another awesome page! From AR, and it's just beautiful!

My Grandparents wedding photo is printed onto fabric and then it has swirls and stitching and sparkly bits on top. It's sooo beautiful, and textural! I love it so much!





Sorry the photo's are so heavily cropped, I'm having to deal with different software since my old computer died and I'm having to use the laptop without the camera software...which must be around here somewhere but I don't know where!

Thanks so much AR, I love it!

Wow ARoze! All that on fabric! Beautiful!

Kaleesi, of course the kids look familiar, you've seen them before  Wink, they are just too cute to not have around more.

I only get one send this round so I won't be having any more photos to post for a bit but am very excited to be seeing more. I agree, Racky needs to get back here and post photos quick!
