Fronts with their Backs


**** Commercial Break and a word about the inkjet vellum: Oh do I love this stuff! The images come out beautiful, ready for cutting, no mess. Very easy to work with! I'm adding this product to my favorites stash! You can also stamp on it. I also won a packet of Double Mates Cardstock (two colors & textures- one each side) that I am saving for this weekend's WSW challenges (see link above left). *****


I am in a Fat Book Swap.

The overall theme is 'Women' and each month we are to submit 2 sub-category pages (10 each). This month's assignment is: Bombshells and Classic Authors/Poets. We also have to have a quote on each page. We end in October and the result will be a Fat Book with 100 pages! Whew!

How on earth did I get involved in this you ask (and I ask myself!). Well, I have been stalking Roni's blog - she's a Ranger certified artist, and has all sorts of fun tutorials. One day, there she was, sending out a call for participants. And I jumped.

These babies need to get out in the mail! Pronto!


Thanks for looking.

I love what you did - I have been so busy, I haven't been to your site recently. Wow and WOW! Congratulations.

Now, what's a fat book? Is it a certain size? I checked the internet and got some diet books, but I don't think this has anything to do with that.
