Finally Finished Ladies Diary Project

As you've learned if you've been stopping by occasionally, I really don't do well with deadlines!  Most people would say the last statement is grossly understated!  

Anyway, my sister in law, Margaret, had a birthday a while back (in June) and I've been working on something special for her.  First of all, some of the delay had to do with waiting on just the right paper from Graphic 45.  I knew "The Ladies Diary" line was what I wanted to use.  Then, I needed just the right project.  Teri, the owner of Scrapbook Unique, helped me out with her stupendous talent and offered a fabulous class.  Then, it was up to me to finish the rest: I needed to design a card and a money enclosure card and embellish the project.

I'm pleased to report the gift was sent to Margaret at the end of October!  AND, I attempted my first video.  Please be kind when you view the following.  I am not a professional and do not know what I am doing!!!!

Here is a picture of the finished Ladies Diary Altered Book I sent to Margaret.

Here is the birthday card I designed to match the Altered Box. 
I lifted the idea from the very talented Jim, the Gentleman Crafter.
Here is the inside of the card.

  1. Connie,
    I can tell that you put a lot of love into this project! Love the details and the flexibility of being able to add to the book by inserting envelopes or other pages into it. I do hope you are feeling better, and that you'll be back on your feet again soon!
