Two Pretty Tildas

I hope everyone had a great weekend! The weather here has improved 100% and toward the end of the week it will be in the 80's. Since I finished all my DT work I got to play with my Magnolia stamps.

Today I would like to share a book that I made this weekend. I really enjoyed putting this together. Thanks, Suzi for the inspiration!  My book has four folds and is double sided and if you look at the photos below there are a few more folds.
I hope I inspired you today!

  11. Wowzer, Karen. This is fabulous. Lots of gorgeous details. Love the two adorable Tildas beautifully coloured. The polka dot outfit looks great. Terrific job on distressing the paper edges--I love the look but I know it's time consuming. That page with the gold diecuts of the birds, branches and birdcages looks wonderful.

  12. Oh wow this is super stunning. I love that gorgeous gold branch and your sweet Tildas too. Thanks for sharing it with us at Totally Tilda in our More than one Fold challenge.
