This weeks Challenge for Tsunami Rose....Butterflies

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog! Here is this weeks Challenge project I did for Tsunami Rose. The theme is Butterflies.....This project is also featuring the New Beginnings paper. What better theme than butterfiles? Well, the project I chose to do this week was very time consuming but very well worth it. Im going to show you all the pages.....

I used a sizzix bigz die cut and cut 9 (was supposed to be 10) chipboard scallop journal sheets...I did this first to insure the book wouldnt be flimsy. Then I cut 18 pieces of Bazzel Card Stock pastels to glue to front and back of each piece of Chipboard.  Then I cut the New Beginnings papers with the same die.  Glued them to each page. And then began the process of embellishing and inking , etc.

I added journaling cards and pockets and tickets from the New Beginning collection. I added more butterflies to the pages and also quotes from a collection from K & Company. I added stickles Star Dust. White flat back pearls and inked the edges with what I call the cats eye ink. 

Than I added the book rings and different ribbons attached to the rings with a beautiful silver Scissors Charm that is very elegantly crafted...This book was alot of work, but in the end, well worth it. Cant wait to add the photos to make it complete.....Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like my projects. Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my last Challenges.. Hop on over to Tsunami Rose Blog spot to see the latest ...
