A Book Box

Hello to all you lovely people,I have had another playday today following a fabulous tutorial from here. Must admit this was a bit fiddly trying to get the fake pages interlocked but practice will make perfect and I will be making this again, it looks so good in real life.I have used Pink Petticoat papers and the Penny Black image "Mixed Media". I have used Vintage Photo distress ink and the rest is from my stash. I do hope you like it

           Looking at it from the front


                                   This is the inside


                                       And a side view 

I would like to enter this into
Penny Black at Alsorts "Flower Power"
Art Impressions "Distressing"
Pals Paper Art "Favorite Technique" (Distressing)
Sir Stampalot "Anything Goes"
Anything Goes "The letter D" (Distressing)
