a Wild West book and a DIY chalkboard book

Good grief, it seems like I never have time to post anything lately, summer and house renovations have taken over my life.  And GI Joes.  But that's another story for another time . . .

ANYWAY, just saying, the theme at Altered Pages this month is "Take a Trip--Visit the USA!"  And today at the Altered Pages blog I'm sharing a Wild West book (which my old friends may recognize):
If you're looking for any state themed images, there are collage sheets for almost every state HERE!  These would be perfect for not just altered art, but scrapbooking, too.  (Plus you can shop at home, and print them off in your jammies.)  Oh oh oh AND if you comment on my post, or any AP post in the month of August, you're in the draw for some really fine vintage travel postcards and a vintage map!

At Unruly Paper Arts, the new issue has been out for almost two weeks, and my first column came out a couple days ago.  But we've already established I'm behind this month, so here is a look at my DIY Chipboard Chalkboard book:
Super cute, and super simple!  You'll find more photos and instructions HERE.  The Unruly issue this month is all about utilizing chipboard and cardboard, and there are already lots of great project posted, with plenty more to come.  

Thank you for stopping by, and have a great weekend!  :)
