Altered board book

I have saved and recycled so many of my twin daughters board books...
this is another.
This is how the little book looks after its makeover.
 This is how it started out.... different hey?
 I used textured parchment paper for the inside,
 stamped the left hand side with a 'quote' and embellished with an image or images to
illustrate that quote.
 On the right hand page I stamped around the edges  
so there is plenty of space to write notes and thoughts. 
 The die-cut key on a leather string is both decorative and functional as a book mark.






SUPPLIES USED
VERSAFINE INK  VINTAGE SEPIA
STAMPS USED
ALL QUOTES FROM PLATE 181 TEXT PANELS
Thanks for stopping by.... see you next thursday for the 1st of the month,

Stunning! I bet that all second hand stores all of a sudden sell all the board books they have got! WOW WOW WOW!!!
Love the dark blue which makes it look very special, and the pages are soooo beautiful! Every quote in a matching environment, and the pages to write on are also beautifully decorated.
A book "to die for"! Lucky twins! (I expect they both have such a beautiful book to write their thoughts in)
