Christmas Book

I joined an exchange this year (with the Canadian Chickies) that was a book exchange. We were supposed to create or alter a book and make it Christmassy for the recipient to use as a journal, scrapbook, etc.

I decided to do a "Remains of the Day" Style journal.

I chose a rose coloured fabric as a base, with a green contrast. The ruffle of silk on the ribbon is my favourite embellishment.


Then I made 2 signatures of pages and stitched them in.


I hope that Heather likes it! Thanks for organizing us Dawn!


This last shot is the Ghost of Christmas Present(s)" AKA the reflection of Martha in the window :) . I took it while I was shooting the above photos. That's my school yard in the back ground. AKA the school with no balls. Sigh.....

It's a beautiful book. I absolutely love the ribbon trim. Why doesn't your school have balls? Are the afraid of underground Dodge Ball games?
