This is one of the first project life pages i did, it is very condensed i tried to put as many pics of it as possible (i still do this but in a smarter way now) it isn't embellished at all , just a starting place , but i fell nostalgic about it as it does so my progression.

Discription: I actually completed this assignment approx 6 or 8 months ago whilst i was was on my craft and craftster hiatus , but i have completed it. I managed to transfigure the supplies and photos i had available into a finished altered book. As it was awhile ago , i have misplaced the in the process photos i took of the stripping and altering the book and i would tackle it differently in the future if i was ever to do another. I did alot of experimenting with this project and did alot of firsts.
