11.11.11 in Holiday Altered Book RR

Hard to believe a year has gone by already, but I just completed my last spread in the last Holiday Altered Book Round Robin. I chose Veteran's Day, because really, how could I not! The whole "11-11-11" thing, plus, it was my son's birthday. Plus, I enjoy doing patriotic spreads so it all works! :-)

Karen's book was notebook style so I was able to remove the ages and work on them individually, which is nice. No worry about messing up someone else's pages, or working in a really FULL book (though really FULL books are fun to caress...LOL!) At least this way you can lay the page flat and work on it with ease. :-)

I painted the background, then filled the page with papers, sparkly stars (though the sparkly really does not like to photograph well), and stamping. I had to take the pic at an angle because of glare from the flash and lights, but you get the idea!

A "Daring" Inchie!


He flies through the air with the greatest of ease, the "daring" young man on the flying trapeze! ('nough said;)

(Last) Monday's "Life"

A teeny bit behind in my Inchies again...mainly because I was stuck on "life"! Nothing and everything ran through my head but how to put all that into a mere Inch when Life is certainly bigger than an Inchie could possibly hold!

So my Life Inchie represents a certain blue-eyed someone (Read: Ava!) who, by simply coming into this Life, completely changed mine...

This one's for you, Baby Girl :)
