In a WORD, or two, or three...

....it's finished.  The word book sample that is.


Thought that ribbons down the side didn't fit with the grungy theme so added a bit of broken jewellery chain and a Tim H safety pin thingy and round letter wotsit (techy terms).

Here are the other pages.







Not as pleased with the final page, bit bland to my eye but overall I'm happy, not grumpy or dozy so that cant be sneezy(d) at  and dwarfs it all (sorry).

Off to the library to return a quilting book before I forget and owe them £5,000 for late return.  It used to be a penny per book in the good old days but seems like they charge moneylender's rates today.  Then home to start on my sister's birthday card. only 5 days to go now so better get my thinking cap on.

Oh Ann, I love the whole things.
The colors are great, and all the embellishments too.

Its a lovely demo of what word books can be like.
It's really grungy and so nice.

Hi Ann, I absolutely love your word book, especially the thingy and the wotsit! Each page tells it's own little story and I think the last page is wonderful, so many little elements to look at. Love it. Hope you enjoy your overnighter - the weather is looking good for it. Hugs, Anne x

My WORD! what a super book inside too. You are doing it to make me even more envious that I can't come.
RE Ireland, it is a statistical fact that it roans 33% of the year there and it's a well kept secret to keep the tourists coming. It's a crazy country but I love it!

Gorgeous, Ann and beautifully decorated. I like the last page, too, but I can see what you mean because there isn't as much contrast on it. The overall effect is fantastic, though. Looking forward to this :-) xxx
