Shabby Book

Hello friends

Hope you are all good!
A quickie post tonight to 
share a shabby/vintage style book cover with you....
The fabric butterfly is cut from some of the Tim Holtz Elements fabric........
For more details click here 
I used some of the new Idea-ology tissue tape along with some remnant rub-ons
the arrows are from the Industrious stickers....a new favourite!
The key was given to me ages ago .......I was just waiting to use it on the right project
this book is a keeper....I bought it at auction while I was away......
when I opened the cover I found the name address of an
old elderly neighbour......
it bought back some fond memories
 I'm so glad I read that inside cover!

As always feel free to leave a comment
great to know you popped by 

Have a great day
