Glorious springtime...

Remember this book?
I started it when there was snow on the ground and I was dreaming about springtime. It returned today, gorgeous and 70 degrees outside, springtime in full bloom. Lilia and I exchanged books. I did the first seven pages and Lilia did the last seven. Love how it looks together, simply overflowing with amazing art. Sit down and enjoy...



Of course she wrapped it up so pretty with a little birdie and a tag. Love every bit of it Lilia!

Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!

It has turned out absolutely gorgeous and I love the idea of making up a journal and have never tried this style of collage before.

I usually play around with fabrics.

I bought a pack of wallpapers and other goodies from Jen Duncan so will have a go at a journal.

I have plenty of bling and fabric to add to it. Can't wait to try it out!

Have added you to my favourites now, hope you don't mind.

best wishes Ginny (in England)

It's so inspiring to see how many friends and cohorts you have. Aside from how gorgeous your shared book is, the relationships you've formed through blogging is most respectable. Kim.
