book and box...

Every year I make a book to keep a record of the challenges I take part in and also the dt pieces I have to do, helps me stay organised, to some description!!! - last years book is so special it has my hero's autograph in it, Tim Holtz is the most patient person I know, he always smiled and signed something for everyone in that room as well as having his picture done with us all - can't believe that that class was nearly a year ago!! time flies hey!

anyway, here's this years book:-


Its very similar to the one for last year...the base is stamped from a creative expressions set of stamps by Sam Poole, the covers were covered with Graphics 45 papers and different elements from the same pack also added, bling and a resin flower, beaded head pins all finish it off....wonder if I'll be able to get someone to sign it this year??

I've also been decorating some of the wooden boxes I've amassed - this one is used to store my Ten Seconds Studio metal tools...



did you guess that that was the contents?? lolxx  The grungeboard blocks are usually inked after this stage but I liked the look of the "au natural" on the black....
