Altered board book








This is my very first attempt at altering a board book. It started life as a Winnie the Pooh story and took me an age to remove the pages. I then covered the pages alternately with Rustic Gems papers and Adirondack Dabbers in Cranberry with some Gold streaked across randomly. Then I took some sticker sentiments about children from a Brenda Pinnick scrapbook kit I have together with some floral embellishments. I arranged these and some photos of my mum, my sister and I and our children on the pages. I then made some ribbon tabs for each page and used some chipboard letter to spell Mum on the front cover. As this is my first attempt, it has its faults but I hope my mum is delighted with it this Mother's Day.
