Don't be square

If you are here for the coffee blog hop it's here.

I'm trying to keep busy.... and that means doing something with myself. I have found that today I'm exhausted.... guess the news of this week is sinking in and the emotions that washed over me have left me kind a tired.... Tomorrow is emptying of my office day.... and I'm so glad that my hubby will be with me because I don't think I could just face going there alone.  Might be emotional you know?!?

Anyway as I have been sharing with you since January I've been pushing myself to do new things!  And that includes doing LOTS of things that I had never done before.  Including altering books!  I've been reading lots of Mixed Media books and that brings a smile to me.  So a good way to feel somewhat better.

And I've also tried to make some gifts that come Christmas I can give out and that will mean something to whoever is getting it.  This one is for my daughter (she doesn't read my blog.... and I sure hope she doesn't start now..... yikes...).  I used one of the totally FABULOUS digi from Tiddly Ink to make this.  And the book that I chose to make it with is a vampire book that my daughter loooooves (BTW found this copy at a thrift store.... the one at home hasn't been harmed in anyway.... I promise otherwise I think my daughter would disown me!).

I cut an aperture to the book and put the digi in it.  The pages of the book were all clued together.  The beautiful butterflies were a gift from my friend Erin.  I used some DCWV letters and chipboard pieces that came from Eternal love pack.

Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics.

And here are the 2 side views of the book :)

So.... what do you think?!?  Will my daughter like this?!?  Will I be a cool mom to my 16 year old.... or a terrible mom?!? YIKES scared now....

I'm entering this little altered book in the following challenges:
  1. Tiddly inks challenge - Don't be square
  2. Altered eclectics - Anything goes
  3. Crafty time challenges - Anything but a card
  4. Crafting from the heart challenge blog - Anything goes

That's it for me but did make me feel good to share this with you guys :)  Can't wait to read your comments!!!
