Do you remember those old plastic curtains - a long time ago stuff. Well I received this piece from an elderly relative destined for the trash. I love the ornate bench. I scanned it in and played with it using Photoshop by adding my background. See my Rustic Pixel Backgrounds blog for the background. Oh what fun with this old stuff!

- Last week I promised to show the picture of the box tops that I decorated to place the grad scrapbooks in. I used Glimmer Mists and a few butterfly etc glimmer screens. On the acetate window I lightly added some alcohol inks then glitter on a glue stamp of the butterfly.

- This is the cover of Jacinda's book. The heart was cut from acetate with a image from Stampington placed on back.
3. Hand stitched around the above page before inserting it. I felt like I was in a coloring book when I did the initial "J" with some H20's. Used sheet music from a early 1900 Etude magazine.
4. & 5. Hand stitched around each oval for grad photo to be inserted.
6. Background stamp with acetate heart and alcohol inks for Letter "J".
7. On the page below I used a coffee filter that I ran through my cuttlebug to make a pocket to add a few loose embellishments.
8. On the final page I added a little mini card with a quote and a personal touch.
Each book was about one inch thick. Made lots of pages to add photos of their Grad and ruled sheets to do journalling on. Next week I will show you the gift boxes I made to put them in! Thanks for reading!
