Lost in a Book for Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge

oh SNEAKY November is almost over. I know better than to wait on some of these fun challenges! Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge is having a challenge that involves scrapping your favorite book. I LOVED this idea. I hoard books. In fact when we moved, I decided I needed less books and it was rather painful. Now, I have all my most favorite ones saved away in a glass cabinet. This one is top of my list of favorites.

I can't even tell you how many times I have read this book.

A little bit of Glitz Design paper called Beautiful Dreamer, some crinkly ribbon, and those birds! Let me tell you about those birds. The other day we were driving through a small town and my parents wanted to stop at a bulk foods Amish store. WELL, they had these books of "German Stickers" that had these glossy embossed images of roses, butterflies, and birds. They were adorable. Although, I must admit I haven't used any until now. Love them!

And, Heather has asked about the rest of my story regarding the Christmas Tree stand that ended up in my front lawn.....

Tomorrow. It will have to be tomorrow.


  1. Wonderful that not only the words, but the image of the book is now preserved too!
    Even if you have a Kindle e-reader, there's nothing like touching a real book!
    Very unique and treasured page. ;)
