Altered Book...

Hi everyone, today I have a very short post for you. I'm so busy trying to get ready for Christmas that I have very little to post. My days are like a blur and I wish I could spend more time in my studio working on what I love to do!

So using this sweet #3067 Gingerbread Tilda, available at Diana's shop here I found this little notebook to alter. If you notice, I also altered a pen to match the book!



I love the background paper which I found at my local LSS. Here is a closer view of how I colored Tilda.



Sorry, I don't have a card recipe for you. I'll try to do better in the New Year!

Well that's it for today. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and find some time for crafting amidst your busy holiday preparations.

Blessings and hugs,
Barb

  24. Barb this is gorgeous. I have a couple of altered things to make for my daughter and I really don't know how to fit them in. So busy - really beginning to wish I hadn't started these marshmallow (snowman poop) bags for fundraising as I seem to spend all my crafting time doing them.
    Just in case I don't get time to pop in again before Christmas - have a wonderful time and of course don't forget to visit us at Bah! Humbug! when we start up again in the New Year. Think the first challenge is on the 7th.
    Take care - happy crafting.
