A wet and windy Saturday

What a horrible wet and windy day,today is,not a good day for going out at all.
Its been raining for 3 days now ,got soaked doing some food shopping yesterday.
Stayed in the dry after that,did some more to my altered book,covered it with some recycled wrapping paper.
Knew when I seen my pressie wrapped in it ,I would have to use it on one of my projects,
so here it is,
its a beahtiful flocked paper,
and I adore it.


The title used up some letters I got in a £1 pack in Home bargains,they have been blinged up with some stick on gems,
Hope they stay stuck on.The silver ribbon,from crafty ribbons,is a bookmark thingy.
Can I enter this project in the following challenge,

Look at me blogging again,been crafting away most of the afternoon
Heres the second page of my altered book,had great fun ripping up oddments of paper to do the background,this is my family page,though not all my family are on it,will add the others on another page.

An altered book,it will be eventually.

Found this old book to try doing an altered book.
You have to rip out most of the pages before you start,took me ages to do this part


Heres the start of my first attempt,
now to fill ths other 20 odd pages,lol.
This is going to be a looooooooooooooooooooooong project.

Just like to share my little bit of fame.

Had this black box through the post yesterday.it contained a free ice ball maker,lol.
I was going to chuck it ,then I thought I would make a proper lid for it,it had a flap lid which I cut off.,I could use it for a card box.

So,I started with the lid ,I just used bits from my stash,decorated it a bit over the top,so my husband said.Then I did the inside,so then I had to do the bottom bit as well

I used some rub on tulips ,I had at the bottom of my stash box.no reason,just thought they looked pretty.
So ,here we have a lovely box with top and bottom not matching really.
