Almost ready for a Round Robin

 

My book is almost ready to send off!  I've been busy creating this altered book as a partner in the Altered Book Club round robin. 

For those who have not had the pleasure, a round robin means I am in a group with five other women....we each create our own books and themes, then we send it off to one of our partners who adds her art pages to it, then they send it to the next person on the list.  In the mean time, I add my art to their books.....finally, my book comes home to me with the additions from these wonderful artists.

My book theme is "Alphabet letters and numbers".....I love color and graphics and I'm thinkin' it shows!

Here's the cover..........

Inside front cover are simple instructions to the ladies and a card for each of them to sign.....one look at the stamping on the sign in card and you can see.....rubber stamps are not my friend!  I maintain, I like them but they just do not like me!

The following are the inside pages I have completed...........

I can hardly wait to see the wonderful art that Amy, Connie, Corinne, Dekida and Laura will add to my book!  When you give another person a piece that you have created with your hands and heart.....you truly give them a piece of yourself.....because NO OTHER PERSON could have created that piece in the same fashion...a precious gift indeed!

Looking forward to continued viewing of this round robin. I think your pages are amazing and I love your sign in pages because I don't think rubber stamping should be perfect (which it never is when I'm around). I just hope your cover makes it through the round robin. I'm surprised you didn't wait till after the book was returned, but I'm impressed at how much you put into it.

I couldn't agree more that YOU are the only person! How thoughtful and thought provoking.
