Time to Share

We finally got some much needed rain in our area of Ohio. We could use a lot more but will take what we can get. Now back to smothering 90's and humidity. I will be glad to see Fall.

I worked on some swap stuff but will share later. What I am sharing today is a Chipboard book. It is a chipboard book we carry in the TAC catalog. It is called a Tea Break Chipboard Book. You can view it here: http://ritaholmes.ismyangel.net/Products/Default.aspx?cid=187&pid=110

I was asked by a very dear friend to make a special card for her husband's employer. She sent me $20 to do this. I thought my gosh...a $20 card and especially for someone I would hate to charge anything to. I decided to make something very special as the person receiving this book is very wealthy and in her 80's. I did the chipboard book with quotes in it. The recipient loved the book and I wanted to share a little bit of it here.

This is an overall view of the book

This is one of the pages with a quote. I put the quote on the left hand page and decorated the adjoining page and used the "Abundance Is" set along with other stamp sets.

This is the adjoining page.

I would show a picture of the front of the book but I must have deleted it off my camera before I uploaded them to my computer. I hate when I do those stupid things. Anyway I hope you enjoy the little bit that I showed.
I hope to have more to share tomorrow or the next few days. Until then...have a wonderful day or night depending on when you are reading this.

Wow, Rita! I can see why she loved it.

I also love your little make-n-take coaster box. I might have to do a little class on those. They are too cute and oh so practical.

Have a great week!
