Hi everyone, it's been a while since I last posted a blog, a picture, a card, a anything. So much has been going on; however, I will not bore ya'll with the drama... I have been busy buying Tilda's, went to the convention (Great American Scrapbook Convention), did really well spent under $100.00. I have done quite a few Tilda cards and a few Sarah Kay's but my latest project which has kept me quite busy, is my chipboard book. I named it Evangeline Redd, because it reminds so much of old New Orleans and red is my favorite colour. I am uploading pictures of my book, I am not quite finished with it; however, I need to break up the monotony by doing another project (like a quick Maggie card or Sarah Kay). I don't know how but I have to find a way to get 2 (TWO) more pages into this book ( it came with 8 inserts and I've only put in 6 because the O rings are not large enough) and then I'll put the finishing touches on the back (ooh-wee wish me luck with that). I used the "Hip & Luxurious Basics" by My Mind's Eye.

Everyone I am so sorry about the fingers, try to ignore them . I just realized that I did not upright the photos (oh my). The bird cage is T.H. (More My Mind's Eye paper-the sparkly one) I used T.H. jump rings to attach the pearls (got the pearls from the local craft store (Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie, TX) http://www.thecraftyscrapper.com/ This is a awesome store Carolyn, has a large selection of specialty items you can't find at the big 3 (Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's and Michaels).
In the above (damask) page, I used some sticker flowers I got from the dollar store, some Michaels flowers and pearls. The cream paper is SU Very Vanilla (still current). The last photo is a double pocket, I used nesties to cut the pockets out, the printed paper is DCWV, the stripped paper is a part of the MME Hip & Lux.... the pearl swirl is from the Crafty Scrapper. Again forgive my fingers. As you can see on the binding I'm not finish with covering and I still need to do the back cover of the book. I'm thinking those other to page inserts might not make it. I'm going to try because I've spent all that time modge podging, sanding and inking them. One page I didn't show because It was too blurry, I'll re-take that photo and post it when I post the back of the book. Lawdy, I'm tired now, I'm off to bed, it is dark-thirty here in Texas and 4am comes mighty fast in these parts.
