Have you joined up with Effy for her Book of Days yet? (Link is over on the right of the page) I love prompts, and I love to watch others work. Book of Days promises both! I chose my word for the year...' Embrace'...this will remind me to let go of the pain of losing my much loved Mum and embrace the love that I find with my two new grandchildren.
On the right is the inside front pages. I used butterscotch and 'vintage paper' ink pads...rubbed onto the surface and blended out with baby wipes. A darker brown was used for the stencilling of the flowers. The pocket on the left will hold a letter to 2011. A hidden pocket between the pages on the right will hold a letter to 2012. The 'Ex Libris' words were already there. I researched and found out that it is latin for 'from the library of'...very apt, so I will add my name underneath!

I finally put my Christmas decorations up today. I wasn't going to bother this year, but now that I have, I'm glad. There's nothing more joy-giving than twinkling lights and tinsel!

The gorgeous Ady Alamanza is having a giveaway to members at her site, Doll Dreams. She has been teaching her beautiful little dollies for a year now and brought lots of pleasure to all of us who have participated.
