A beautiful world..

My first little W Book - thanks to video instructions from Tim Holtz and some covering and binding tips off Astrid Maclean's blog!

I think I may have learned as many don'ts as do's in the project and it probably took me longer than it should, but it was fun.

The theme throughout the book is nature - featuring butterflies (of course), birds, trees, flowers etc. So I would like to enter Country View Challenges - Nature's Glory and That's Crafty - Spring is in the Air.

I have used heaps of bits I had left over from other projects or from 'just trying things out' - so I would also like to enter Our Creative Corners - Love those Leftovers.

Lots of photos - sorry for some of the watermarks across the middle of the image, was trying some different software and didn't realise what had happened until I had deleted the original image files!

Have a lovely weekend.
