A blog friend of mine; Gerri from It's All Treasure, posted one day and said "Do you want to play"
well this intrigued me to say the least.
Gerri offered to send ten of us a package full of goodies (see at end of post) and asked us to play making what ever we wanted with 4-5 of the items she was sending along. We were asked to email her a picture and she will post what we all created.
I am always up to a challenge so I emailed her right away.
A few days later the package arrived as promised.
I headed to our local auction house yesterday with my package full of goodies from Gerri, my scissors, glue, double sided tape and some goodies of my own to create a cover of a journal.
I used a piece of linen that was given to me by my friend Betsy, it was her mother in law's and also the butterfly.
I tied ribbon and trims in the binding rings.
The background is an interesting piece of paper that was machine sewed with silver thread, the camera doesn't pick this up very well.
Notice the image of the little girl holding her journal or perhaps her diary...
This is the package of goodies Gerri sent.
Thanks Gerri for the goodies and the challenge.
Well, I played and had a great time making my journal not to talk about my visit to the auction.
I purchased some small crystal bowls and some cut glass larger bowls for my granddaughters blessing party in early May. My thoughts for the party is crystal, sterling silver, and antique bottles to start. More on this at a later date.
Thanks for stopping by.
