Something to Show!

I haven't been too well & going into work has proved trial enough for me. Ronda has been on a cruise & so we took a small break from the Time minibook. I am now waiting on ink for my printer before I can complete the two pages but in the meantime I have made this Inspiration book.
It started life as these.......
They were cluttering my home & taking up valuable shelf space. So I got to work with my scissors chopping them up. The rubbish got recycled & the rest were turned into this book. Here are a couple of pages. It was fun to do & very easy. Now I have a handbag sized book of inspiration instead of a whole shelf of tired looking magazines.

Paper is BG Scarlet's letter. Bound together with my BIA pages are 4x6".
I am now making another called my Dream Home & it will only feature images of how I really want my home to look.
