Altered Book ..

Whoa it's cold here once again ... where did Spring go?? 
It's the Easter holidays here and the weather always seems to go cold when the children are off school ...

I did my talk and a 'make and take' at the Womens group on Monday ... It seemed to go well and they were all pleased with their little book houses I got them to make... in fact I have been asked to go back again and I also got requests from a few other Women's groups to go along and do the same sort of thing. 
I was really nervous at first ... There were so many ladies there .... It's not the same as doing a class where everyone is interested in crafting ... so I was relieved when it was over and happy that they enjoyed it.

I took along a few things to show them and hopefully inspire them ... this is an altered book I did ... I'll let the photos do the talking ... just bits and pieces from my supplies ...




This is the inside ...


... I hollowed out a part of the book to make a compartment




That's all I have to share today ... I am ploughing through DT stuff so that I can have everything done before my trip to Norway in 17days! 

I hope you have a lovely day ... Thanks for stopping by 
Till soon

I bet they all loved listening to your passion for crafting. I guess not everyone at these groups is always as entertaining! Your book is lovely. Love the hollowed out bit! Hope you manage all your DT work. The trip sounds exciting xx

This is so lovely Ros! I just love those glittered hearts on the front and the key looks great in that little nook. Be they flipped over this project. :-)
I'm so glad your class went so well. See I told you you'd be a blessing. :-)
Bet you're excited about your trip. Hope you have lots of fun and take LOTS of pictures to share with us. Hugs!

Congratulations, Ros, on doing that crafty job so well!
You're off to Norway? I love that country; lived there for a short period, long ago ('74 -'75 psst, am I that old?).
Wishing you a wonderful holiday!!
