FabricGirlz! I'm baaaaaack!

This is the page that I did for Belinda's Hidden Treasure book. I had so much fun. I did it in the style that she started for her book -- using lots of Kaffe Fassett fabrics -- and embroidery quilting and beads.
This is the front -- with the little door open and closed.Then the back -- and in the pocket is a hidden treasure!Okay, I'll show you it -- it's a pin!The great thing about fabric pages is that I can do them on the go -- in a car, on the subway, watching tv, talking on the phone. I can't do that with paper! I have some paper pages to finish on the weekend. Report cards are finished, edited and signed! I can happily putter in my nice, cool basement. Yay! I'm finally catching up! Yay!
