Making a Smash Book for my Sister

Well I have been little by little making a smash book for my sister.  
I only work on it when I have an idea and then that of course sometimes leads to several pages.  
If not I do what I want then put it down until ready to work on it again.

I made the book from Scratch.  Meaning 2 pieces of card board.
Sheets of printer papers off my printer and from another package of cloudy paper I bought.

Here are some of the pages I have done so far.  Well that I have pics of that is.

As I add more I will post them here in order as if you are looking through the book yourself.


 My stitching

The Front

The background is from a Wall Paper book.

Well While adding these photos I see I put Leave instead of Leaf.  Will have to fix that I see.

The Leaf I bought years ago from a craft store.  
It was already tinted purple.  

I added the pocket AFTER I stitched the book.  

Didn't think of it before hand.  oooops.

This is a real leaf coated a year ago with Alene's Tacky glue front and back.  
And it is still in tack.  
Now I want to get a green, red and yellow one.  
She loves the 4 seasons.  
But Fall the most.

gave up on getting real fall leaves.

I have lots more done, but need to take pics.  
And the torn out words are from an Old Bambi book I grew up with. 
 I decided I didn't need to keep it anymore so recycling it.

This tripped me out on how it seemed to fit right in with this journal.
