beautiful books

Hey crafty friends - it's my turn to host at Seize the Birthday! I'm a super avid reader and a book nerd so I picked the theme: be inspired by a book. Here's my creation - pretty happy with how it turned out.  I have to say that the blending looks better in the photo than in person (lol!).

This is the book I was inspired by.  It's a beautiful book cover and beautiful to read as well - I was lucky enough to receive it from a friend as a gift.

Hope you can play along with us! Check out the blog for the rest of the beautiful creations from the DT as well as our new Surprise Party Guest Izzy.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you have a beautiful day.

  3. Glenda I want to thank you for a great challenge. You immediately what book I wanted to do as I recently read it and it made a big impression on me.
