Let's Get Shabby...Read and Craft ....


Over at
Let's get Shabby
It's all about
 A  Book Cover Picture Inspiration…..
Choose a book cover picture and be inspired by it!  
 We need two photos…. one of your book cover and one of your project – let us know how you were inspired .
Here's what I created for my DT piece...
I've bought a few books this week, in preparation for my hospital stay next month...
The book I chose is to be inspired by is 'A Gift to remember' by Melissa Hill...
(Now.... I can't recommend the book, because I have not read it yet).
This book has inspired me to create a tag to decorate a present for a special friend. My main inspiration comes from the image of the Gift and the books title.
(Created with distress paints, inks and 'Butterfly Girl' Sam Poole stamp).
Now hop over to
Let's Get Shabby
..for the full deets ...and see what other wonderful inspiration the talented shabby girls have created for this Book Cover challenge and there's a fabulous  prize up for grabs for the challenge winner....
Thanks for Peeking!
