Papertrey Peeps Challenge #7 - An Inspiring Life

Inspiration Shot from a Creative Mint


I created this little book as my entry into the latest Papertrey Peeps challenge. I had fun with this but I think it took me way to long to accomplish. I agonize over every detail. But I do like the way it turned out. Sorry if the photos aren't great ~ I was trying to work with the lighting in my room and it wasn't perfect.





Supplies used:

rub-on (unknown company, yes, that is how long I have had them)
papers by Webster's Pages, papertrey ink, and Cosmo Cricket
ribbon - hand dyed seam binding I got from an etsy store
material from Mish Mash kit
buttons - papertrey ink
ink - all papertrey ink
Bind it All tool and acrylic cover (6x6)
sheet music from Papertrey Peep Carol (thank you)
mat stack die - papertrey ink

Wow!! I love your inspiration photo and your interpretation! The flower paper you've included is so pretty - but I absolutely LOVE the delicate addition of the pearls and buttons. Also love the antiqued sallop and the addition of the text - all tied up in that delectable bow! Fantastic project Angy!
