Think spring..

Well folks, I finished the cover for my round robin book with Lilia. It looks a little flat because I scanned it since it's dark out right now so I can't photograph it. This project is a lot of fun because I'm using some of the goodies from the swaps I've been in recently. I'll keep posting as I complete more pages. The book itself is made out of brown paper lunch bags. Makes for a fun little mini-book.

I love working with all this spring loveliness as we "brace" for another big snow storm here in Minnesota. Will spring ever come? Ok, I know it's only February:) Speaking of spring... if you're in the spring swap, your little sprite brooch should be arriving in your mailbox very soon. I've only heard from a few people. Please let me know when they've landed safely in their new homes. Thanks!

Thats beautiful. How do you like working on the paper bag book? I am really interested in this as an alternative to chipboard. Love to hear your pros/cons. I read your blog quite often.
