Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Lady Couture Domino Book

Come and Get it Challenges this week is having a Anything Goes Challenge and the challenge is sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps. 

For this challenge I made a Domino Book using a pad of beautiful pattern paper from  the Stack Company called Lady Couture.  The paper is the ultra chic stack showcases designs paper.

To create my book I cut my papers using the directions that I found on Scrapbook -Crazy's web site. I coloured the dominoes with Alcohol Inks and edged them with Martha Stewarts' micro beads, added some sentiments, ribbon and finally four beads for the feet of the book. 

I had fun making the little book.  I hope you will join us this week at Come and Get It Challenges, anything but a card challenges are always fun.
