The Finished Book - Les émotions de la France Book Swap

I just posted these wonderful pictures here of the finished book!
It looks fantastic and now all I have to do is pack them up and send them on their way. You can read more on the above site!
The Books Are Bound & Ready To Go

Lovely Layers of Beautiful Pages

Another Taste

Here is another sampling of our book. This shows the back of Beth's page and the front of Kathy's. They had posted their pics on our group page, so I showed theirs. I wanted you to have lots of surprises too!

I showed the back side of Christine's beautiful page (because we have seen it posted on Flickr) and the front side of my contribution. It is my first go with digital images. On the back I did a collage with an embossed stamped image, chalks, lace and more.

All bound and ready to go!

It has been a pleasure working with all of the amazing artists who contributed to my book! I am thrilled and every second put into it was so worth it. Keep your fingers crossed. I hope to get it published for us! Wouldn't that just be a dream come true! If you have any advice on how to do so, please feel free to let me know.

Have a great day!
