~The Secret Garden~

I have been in the Studio Creating Again 
and I am Glad to be Back !
When my Kids are Home 
I find 
I want to Hang out with them 
so my Studio Work goes on the Back Burner.
This is there first week back to school.
So Many Ideas! So Little Time!
This is a Little Book I Created for a 
Very Sassy New Friend!
This is My Thank you Gift 
for the one thing I managed
to Squeek in this Summer.
A Mixed Media Artist Supply Swap 
With Paper Whimsy!
This is there Very Least I could Do for her
with the Wonderful Package She Sent me!
It is Like Having Your Best Girlfriend 
Sending you all the Things 
You Love and Adore!
She was Very Generous and Kind!
We were suppose to make a ATC Thank You..
 Well you know I can never turn down
a Chance to have fun!!
 I cut out ATC size pieces of watercolor paper
and glued a length of ribbon to create my Hinges.
Next I layered my Images on each pages over the Ribbon.
I Think that next time I would go Ahead and Glue All of the Ribbon 
to the Watercolor Pages First. Then Assemble the Book. 
I think it be easier  then the Way I did it!
~Ethereal Beauty~
I made a Little Envelope Pouch to send it in!
I Had So Much Fun Making this!
I Hope She Enjoys it.....
even if it is late getting to her.
Have a Wonderful Weekend Everyone!
