I tried to show three options for working in my book, but each participant has artistic license as they portray their word, phrase or quote. I am looking forward to this new year of our round robin and swaps. ")

On the inside of the cover I added two vellum envelopes. I typed instructions and printed them out. I cut around them and added them to a decorative panel, signed it and added it to the top envelope. I tucked enough tags into the bottom pocket for my art sisters to decorate and sign for the pages they do in my book. I wrote my name/address/phone number on a decorated tag and added it to the top of the right-hand page. I added another vellum envelope to the bottom o the page. I cut several small art pictures from a page I had torn out of the book. I put them in the pocket and printed out instructions to glue to the envelope. These pictures are for my art sisters to choose from to decorate their tags.
This is the complete quote with my art work. I used the painted tape again to cut out the house parts. I love that the "H" stands not only for HOME but also for HEART. Here again I used a bread tab. It is the door to this tall house. For some reason I am drawn to the numbers on the tags and love to use these tabs in many places in my art work. I especially like to use them in art journals.
(I have one more word that I want to do.....just one word but lots of pictures and art work. I'll post it when finished.....before I send my book on it's adventure. ").

I placed a strip of washi tape down the opening side of my journal because I haven't decided yet whether or not I'm going to decorate the front.
Yeah......I wrote down Trust......and AFTER I worked on my page this week, then I noticed it was Truth. So,
I'm not in sinc with everyone else. But, I did have a good week of Bible study. ")
I love this little card. I've got to check my Etsy order and see who sent it. I've ordered so many things lately that I can't remember. I'll be back to update this post when I figure that out. ") (I've got ideas of making myself a deck of cards in a similiar manner.....one of my addictions is altering playing cards. ") You can see some of my altered cards at:

I am not through with this book yet. (**) I have a page with a horse on it and I'm looking through photos to find some of our daughters with their horses when they were young. Also, I have another page that says "You have bright ideas"........trying to come up with an idea for that page! LOL

hearts around the pages. I love the words (don't know if they are hand written or stamped): loved, inspired and home. She has added some little birds in some of the trees. Rub ons? On top of this she has made some beautiful textured stars. They are white and touched with gold. Gorgeous! Her signature card has a tiny little bow added to it and it has been stamped with those adorable trees. Thank you, Minori!
