Reach For The Stars

Good morning and happy Saturday. Today I'm over at Ink Art Designs and I'm sharing the rest of my 'Little Book of Secrets' that I made at a recent Tracy Easson class. I'm not saying how the book was made as it's a class that Tracy is still teaching. I will say that it was great fun and I can't wait to take another of her classes.

I know that you've seen the front cover already but I really like the covers lol.

I just love Matilda Bottoms, she's so cute!

And Morty is such a handsome chap, always with his head up to the sky.

This is page 3. I really enjoyed working with the fabrics, not something that I had ever done before.

This is the middle where we added some paper pages.

And the other side with some fabric clouds added. This is the very sweet Betsy Bottoms.

Lots of words on this page.

And I've added a Tim Holtz die cut to this one.

The lovely Matilda started the book so it seemed only fair that she should end it too.

And finally the back cover with a fabric badge that I made - I never thought that I would say that!

I hope that you've enjoyed your little tour of my book, and that you will also join me at the Ink Art Designs facebook group, and play along with our challenge over there. Just click on the link to be transported

I'm entering my book into this months Mini Album Makers challenge. It's the first time that I've made a fabric album but it won't be the last. I enjoyed it so much and you end up with something to keep.
I'm also entering into this months Craft Stamper TIMI anything goes challenge. 
Have a very happy day, and thanks so much for looking x
