Altered Books

Blogging for Mixed Media Monday
A sneak peek into one of my altered book projects with a Paris theme.
Images courtesy of Altered Pages & word strips from Sultane a French paper company. Pop back later in the week when I will be adding more images. Tattered Angels Seaglass and Denim glimmer mist.
Jackie has a special deal going for friends who follow my link to her space and sign up for the newsletter you get one free digital sheet collage to get you started.

For my friends that like a little on line cropping and scrapping action, a special invitation to join in a cyber crop over at Scrapping Outback. Starts Friday July 15 and runs through the week. They lured me in with the cutest range of chipboard titles and shapes but found them all to be so friendly it has become a favourite place to hang out.

Lots of prizes and goodies donated from my other favourites Tattered Angels and Australian Scrapbook Ideas Magazine. Looking for a little inspiration to get you started? Click into the latest Wendy & Heidi how to video in all shades of glimmering colour.

I love 7 Gypsies...........

and I think you all know why........if not click and see for yourself.

Mandy,
Hi, I'm glad to meet you.

I'm glad you came by my place and left a comment, and that you liked my bird nest lamp.

Your little journals are so sweet. Love the colors and design.

I'm going to see more.

I am also an expat (Brit girl moved to Oz) and I am creating a blog about the Australian visa process.I am writing articles to help others who are looking to move to Australia.If you would like to submit a story to my blog I would love to hear about your experience of the Australian visa process, especially if it can help others. I would love to hear about whether you did it yourself or if you used a Migration Agent to help you, and what problems orpit-falls (if any) you experienced.Thanks a lot and i love your blog.
