GDT at It's All About The Vintage

Hi everyone, the lovely Sande asked me a while ago if I would like to be GDT at It's All About The Vintage, how could I refuse??

The theme is 'Book Cover', well ever since my teammates Elin and Tracy made lace books I have been itching to give one a go. And, as luck would have it, as I was tidying my craft room getting ready to move rooms, I found these 6 x 6 albums, perfect for the job!!!

I didn't want the front of the book to be too bulky so I haven't matted the paper onto Bazzill. The paper is from the 6 x 6 paper pads from both Vintage Spring Basics and also Vintage Summer Basics. The edges have been distressed with a Tim Holtz tool. The image is from Girls From Grandma's Attic, tinted, by Pion Design and has been distressed with Walnut stain.

Here is a top view to see all of the luscious laces from Live and Love Crafts, I have also fastened some around the large metal rings that hold the album together.

The wooden veneer 'darling' is from my stash, the pearl string is from WOC and all of the other embellies are from LLC.
