Altered Composition Book

Happy Happy Sunday My Dear Sweet Friends -

It is a gloriously sunny day and I find myself wondering how many sunny days there will be left until winter strikes.  Ironically its not even Autumn (but getting closer) and I am thinking about the cold days of winter.  I think I need to take a seat on the back patio and enjoy the sunshine a little more today).

I thought it would be fun to share an altered composition book I made for a dear friend of mine.  We were on same online group but the site was shut down unexpectedly.  I am hoping this journal made it to its destination and she loved the comp book as much as I did creating it for her.  It's full of little pocket pages with various size tags,

For my next post I am going to post photos of the one she made for me and its GORGEOUS!!!

I have some exciting news coming soon and can't wait to share it.

Have a blessed week and thanks so much for visiting my blog!!

With hugs and smiles

  1. Oh, Laine, this is such a marvelous project! Love the lace you used for the tie closure and that crocheted doily is fabulous. Wonderful idea to add the pockets to various pages. Can't wait for the good news, my friend.

  2. A gorgeous altered notebook. Love the old world feel.

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
