IACW - Easter Blog Hop!

Hello! And a warm welcome to you - It's a Creative World are hosting a blog hop this weekend!  You may have 'hopped' over to me from Doda's blog (http://www.dodadidit.blogspot.co.uk/) - if so, and you've never stopped by before, I hope you enjoy your visit! If you have not arrived here as part of the blog hop - why not start at the beginning and then you'll see all the lovely things that my incredibly talented DT colleagues have made! There might even be a giveaway or two! More details are at the end of this post!
The theme of the blog hop is 'Spring' and I have chosen to alter a book! I have used a variety of Tim Holtz stamps, Wendy Vecchi stamps, Archival Inks, Distress Inks and Distress Stains. I have also used a few Tim Holtz dies on the inside cover along with a hidden tag.
Ssh! This is the hidden tag!
The envelope is made using a die and PaperArtsy's truly scrummy Crunchy paper
The flowers were die cut from Tim Holtz's kraft core paper, sanded and edged in Vintage Photo Distress Ink
If you would like to win my altered book then all you have to do is become a follower and leave a comment! It's as simple as that! I will draw a random follower to win at lunchtime on 3rd April!
Well, thank you so much for stopping by and if you would like to continue please hop on over to  Eleanor's blog (http://highlandhousekeeper.blogspot.co.uk/)!
