Vintage altered book for challenge at Marion Smith's

This Vintage Book is for a challenge at Marion Smith "A Piece of Craft" Blog. Marion works for Prima and is an outstanding artist. So, I decided to join in the fun. I got this book at a good will store. It smelled so old when I was working on it....Reminds me of how my grandmother's house used to smell. Brought back some of the best times of my child hood. She was the most awesome Grammy that anyone could have!!

With this book I used Tattered Angel's glimmer mist, Prima flowers and Prima Bling,(I changed the color of the pearl's with some Tattered Angel's Glim Glam I think is what it is called...some ribbon bought at Hobby Lobby, Tim Holtz Vintage Photo and Black Soot Distress Ink. I made the book charms with glass beads and charms from my collection. Hope you like what I have created....I loved making it and will make more of these altered books.

Photo frame for my mother

Here is a photo frame is for my mother. This is a picture of my grandparents on their wedding day. Come to find out about 20 years after my mother was married to my father...she found out that she was married on the same day as my grandparents. Her mother passed away when she was 2 so she was in foster homes and did not know. How cool is that?? Hope you like!!
