Book of Love

My very kind and lovely friend Louise gave me this little book which she names the Book of Love. Isn't it beautiful? It has five painted and covered pages which are all decorated so nicely. Some of the images have been carefully cut out and raised with foam tape and she has used taffeta ribbon and little Prima flowers with bead and brad centres to embellish.
I am not sure what companies make some of the images but there are all Stampin' Up! papers used - from the Enchante DS paper pack that was in the Summer Mini. The lovely background stamp French Flair has been used too.
This is indeed a a treasured book and I display it and change a page from time to time. Thank you so much Louise!!!!
I did not do any crafting today - just caught up on banking, housework and all those kind of dreadful chores! Tomorrow I go to my little grandie's first birthday party so no making cards again. On Saturday I get to make a couple of OTP projects with other girls which will be fun I know!
