Art Swap 4" X 4" Chunky Book

My lovely pages came in the mail from Alaska last week.  Aren't they just fun and fabulous?  Each one is by a different artist.  I made several pages extra so I could keep them and make my book a little fatter. I want to make a cover for it.  The theme is the famous MOULIN ROUGE in Paris a time of excess and decadence.

Let us not forget our military today. They sacrifice everything for our freedom.  Have a safe week...........DIANE

For The Love Of Love

These are the pages that I am working on.  They have a long way to go but they are so much more colorful that the first up load I just had to add them. They seem to grow and change as I find things to add to them.  I know these pages are not done.  I will add journal later and when the pages are finished I will fill them with cards of LOVE...................Have a heart filled day................DIANE

I finally got started on my Journal/card-keeper.  I found this old old record album and thought it would work to alter and turn into a romantic card keeper for all the cards my husband and I have exchanged over the years.  It came with four records and pockets.  I have added several new pockets.  I wanted to keep the words "thrill of romance" on the cover.  Not sure how I will alter the rest of it but wanted to show it in stages.  I paid $4.00 for the album at a thrift store.  The pockets are a nice heavy brown paper. I added pages by using pretty card stock.  I am not sure if I will leave the inside cover with all the original people but I did add a little bling to get me started..  Have a bright and sunny week..................DIANE
