Altered Composition Book for SOC Swap

This is a Altered Composition Book,this swap was one of the best ones I participated in last year. I like making 2 or 3 items in a swap,it allows you to add more intricate embellishments,spend more time on each book,and to me,it allows me to be more creative,and spend a little more for each items.

A New Year!

Happy New Year! One of my resolutions this year is to at least visit and update my blog on a weekly bases
(baby steps) and then hopefully it will be daily.
