They're FINALLY here!!! :)

My First Altered Book!!!

This is the first book that I altered and "gifted" to my hubby. It was one of those Hallmark, Valentine type of books with those kids holding umbrellas in black and white with their cheeks, lips, etc that had been colored over. He read the book once and then it sat on the shelf until I came across a book about Altered Books. I knew this would be the first book I would use. I loved the words in the book, so I kept them in tact, but I altered the rest of the book. I know that I have kept you all waiting and I hope that you are not disappointed! :) Feel free to scraplift these ideas, as creativity starters for your own altered books...and don't forget to use your glitter!!!! :)
