Well I finally finished my second 2 pages in the board book challenge with next-generation-stampers. We had to do orange at the top and green at the bottom with a wavy red line across. Then put a brown stain over the top of that, make 3 handmade flowers and find a favorite flower quote. Then we just added some finishing touches to finish the pages to our liking. I really like the way this one came out.

My dear friend Gerrie told me about a challenge to really put me "out of my box" with a group we are in at http://www.next-generation-stampers.com/ so I had to give it a try. Starting with a board book, we have to do step by step directions posted by the hostess Trish. I am very happy with the way my first 2 pages came out and I'm getting ready to start on the next set. I'm a little behind but hope to catch up this week. I am really learning to do different things that I normally wouldnt' have thought of doing with paints, etc. After coloring the pages, we had to find a photo in a magazine and put that on, add some slices of paint, then pick a letter and put on the book, then we had to find a quote that started with that letter. Lastly adding an image to do with that letter and I have always dreamt of going to Paris so thought the stamped image was fitting, ending it with 3 metal embellishments.

Thanks to a dear art friend from online, Melanie Hall, I have become addicted to doing Deco Books. I have an art group on yahoo and we do alot of ATCs, 4x4s, Inchies, Twochies, Mini Atcs, Moo Cards, altered items and deco books. I have attached photos of 2 of the Deco Books I have done with the group. One was "Free Expressions" deco book which I chose the theme of "Angels". The other is a deco swap we did titled... "Paris". The art inside is just wonderful and its fun to make a book and mail it around to several people to add a page and get a beautiful book of unforgettable art back to treasure a lifetime.

Well... its that time of the year where you want to start thinking about the Christmas cards to go out. I did 94 of them last year, each one completely different, layered and stickled. Going to start early this year so I'm not backed up in December. :) Hope you enjoy them.
