One Day In Your Life...

You don't take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it. -Author Unknown I needed to make a handmade gift for someone, so last night I searched around in my "Alterables" cache and found this fun book, I THINK it is KaiserCraft, but I have had it so long I really have No Idea!

The recipient of this giftie likes Purple & "Dark Things." She also listed Country and Coffins in her list of home decor. I was a little stumped. I went through my papers and found some dark purples and blacks in one of my Webster's Pages 6x6 Petite Papers Packs. I added blink and a little black crocheted lace to the paper and I think it leans a Little to the Dark Side. :)

Cover (KaiserCraft swirl, I think)

First Page Open (You can Just see the lace on the right side)
