Craft of the day
Altered Book Journal






This Altered Book will be used for the
Baby Shower
I am hosting for my daughter this Saturday!
***

materials:
old book
(cut out front and back)
acrylic paints
sandpaper
(for ruff look around the edges)
scrap paper
vintage music sheet
drawing paper
(70lb. for journal)
crepe paper
(create fringe)
embellishments 
UHU Stick

This journal will be placed on a table 
by the front door, 
along side of a picture frame of
ultrasounds that have been taken 
of my future Grandson.
Guests will arrive 
and 
write in the journal, with this question to answer...

Tell me something, I should know, about the world.

I really hope my daughter will enjoy this journal 
and treasure it until that day...
her son will ask...
"Mommy, tell me something about the world?" 
And she will have the journal to share.
***

Let's all today treasure... the gift of life!

Wishing everyone 
wonderful Friday!
