Before I begin, have you been over to see what Julia has posted this week on her blog
Cus it's gorgeous.
Here is my slightly boring workdesk.

GORGEOUS vintage Christmas paper from Memory Lane.  Is it not to die for?
And a couple of ATC's on top.
On the left, in the corner is a stack of real-live-not-digital scrapbook pages I'm am getting done.
I've missed it, even though I really love doing digital work.
OK, so, see the shiny thinglet kind of at the top?
Well, it's a domino book I showed you on my workdesk a week or two ago
and I promised I would show the finished project.
So I shall do just that.
The title page:

Lisa's Altered Art has a "Queens" series and I loved them so much I made this tiny book.
(with the help of a perfect tutorial by Laura Carson of
Some of the deets:

You can't say I didn't warn you about all the pics,
I admit, it needs some fine-tuning.
But I like it.
A lot.
And it's for me.
I don't mind the imperfections.
Did you know that the Amish say when you make a quilt,
you should always make one mistake somewhere, because only God can make perfection?
Or something like that.
Well, think of this as an Amish Domino book.
My first.
I'll get better.
Thanks for satying with me, if you're still out there.
