Photo Hunt - Paper

My spare room is stacked with boxes full of paper; paper for altered books, scrapbooks, cardmaking and other "artsy-fartsy" projects! I cut pictures out of magazines to use with altered books and a book I'm working on. I have boxes full of cards I've been saving over the years to use in some way. I love papers, especially all of the different textures and colors.

The little book above started out from a kit and I further embellished it. The photo is of me and my dad circa 1955.

This really is creative. I have neither the patience nor the creativity to do something like this.

I came over because your comment on Melon's page about the cat was hilarious and had me laughing out loud! Thanks for that!!

Well that is beautiful!! You are very crafty!! Great picture for today!! I still try to see if you have posted even though you do not show up on bloglines!! Sometimes i wonder what is wrong with them. Is there a place where you can get in touch with them?
There is a google place to go also...I think it is called google reader. Just a thought...Sandy

Very creative work !
I just want to let you know that I am back from Italy in a "normal" world at least concerning internet connection ! I have never had such a bad connection since I am blogging ! Not even from Egypt or Turkey. From 1 h Internet I could use maybe 45 min at the beginning and then 15 the last 3 days ! It was awful. We arrived home at 1.30 pm made the trip in two shots of course. Now I have to catch up on all news in blogworld ! So I have a lot to read, lol ! Sorry that I couldn't comment, because of this bad connection !

You are definitely the artsy-crafty sort! That's gorgeous!

That is a neat entry for this theme. . . I made a card that looked like a book for a dear fiend for her birthday that reminded me of yours.

Come and see my entry.
