a tiny hand bound tag book with Sabor Papel

Ready to fill with photos and tiny mementos, a miniature sweetheart book or album--Siempre y Para Siempre, Always and Forever.  This book was created using a new line of papers, from Sabor Papel, who is partnering with Altered Pages this month.
 The inside pockets are only a little over two inches wide, so not big enough to hold even an atc.

The little books inside the book open to reveal a sentiment, and all the tags have spaces for photos or journalling.  My favorite little addition is the plum folder in THIS POST--it's just big enough to hold a wallet sized photo.

You'll find more photos and info in my post today at Altered Pages.
 ***(a little update--if you like this Always And Forever book, and wanna make your own, there is a kit full of supplies and goodies HERE.)***
Thank you for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend!

baby shower decorations--What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday, #359

Baby Shower update:  This is one of those what WAS on my workdesk--if you've been WOYWWing, you may have seen This Post with the mixed media collage animal prints.  Well, here are a few photos of those prints in action at the baby shower.

It was a woodland animal themed baby shower, which you can probably tell.  Also, at the time our daffodils were blooming like mad, so they made a nice contribution to the affair:
the little flower sprouts were for party favors
I painted eggs, too!
fabric bunting in nursery colors
Yes, that is grass growing in a vase behind the little plaque
She was very pleased with the whole event, and a good time appeared to be had by all.   

Happy WOYWW to you!  See you at Julia's

proof of life

Yes, I'm still alive.

Here are a few pics for proof:

A peek at an upcoming project,
I'm particularly fond of that little plum folder--it's just the right size for a wallet sized photo.  And the partner tag in the pocket next to it says "Siempre y Para Siempre"--Always and Forever--so I'm thinking a wallet sized photo of one's sweetie would be perfect.  :)

AND a photo of me and the girl child--we were taking lots of silly pics in the "photo booth" at the Easter brunch at church (all the boys were still eating, go figure!)

It's a well known fact around these parts that my mother always has her camera with her and ready to go--here is one of her walking into the shot of the photographer as she's taking our pic, which we all found highly amusing!

There you have it.  Proof once again that I am, in fact, still alive. 

Happy Thursday to you!

creating a veladora

Today at Altered Pages, I have a veladora to share, created using paper from new line from Sabor.
Not sure what a veladora is?  You can find out HERE!  
By the way, if you try making one, let me recommend the gel medium (I used DecoArt Media, Matte finish)--it adheres extremely well, and dries surprisingly clear--I mean, I know gel medium dries clear, but I can't even see any brush marks through the glass, which is kind of important in this case.

Guess what I'm doing today?  Installing two new ceiling fans.  It's amazing what you can learn on youtube.
Have a great Thursday--I'll "see" you next week, assuming I don't electrocute myself . . .
