Amidst all the rushing around for the past month, I was lucky enough to win this informative little collage book. I entered to win on a blog that I found on the craft gossip site. It was fun getting it in the mail this week. My favorite part of the book is the back section , which has a fun mix of background and collage papers.
Speaking of paper, it was the Bazzill Paper Warehouse sale this weekend. I really didn't need to go, as I need to complete my project line up. However, after thinking about it for about an hour I drove over to Chandler to see what was left. The deals that I picked up today were the little coverall 6 x 6 books that were $1.50 each. There were coin folders for .25 each, so I picked up a few. Also a great buy, spools if nice ribbon, 15 yards for $1.50. There were a couple of items that were there on Friday , but were sold out. I did buy a couple of kits that were available from the Creative Escape. And finally I bought several packages of inch size chipboard circles and squares to use for swaps. It's fun to go to these sales, they are truly like going on a treasure hunt.

Round Robin Fun

It's time to grab the books and start to play.

The Round Robin Altered Book Swap is about to begin.

A group of fabulous artists have signed up to play.

Each one has selected a theme for her book and we get a few weeks to create a spread according to the selected theme.
I have had this book for quite sometime and thought it would make an excellent carpet bag...... is there a better theme for it then "Steampunk"?

I was inspired by the Gail Carriger Books - Soulless, Changeless and the new book Blameless. They are marvelous~full of Intrigue, Vampire's and Werewolves and of course love and dysfunctional relationships. They take place in London and are full of Steampunk!

Fabulous read!
