Okay, so here's the deal - this is the squash book that I was having so much trouble with, but I think I'm okay with how it looks now..... I played around with glue and stuff but the result is a completed book that isn't falling apart - how's that for progress? lol
Thanks to the lovely flash on my camera, you can see how metallic the flower on the front looks - it's embossed with gold on a chipboard flower from SU!, and it's got one of our rhinestone circle brads in the middle. How fun is that?! The paper is one of our older styles, but it is such a classy one that I had to use it. The burgundy grosgrain is mixed together with a golden fiber I purchased a long time ago, but it really pulled the look together for this project. I hope you like it.
Here's how the inside looks when it's opened up (you can click it for a larger view):
Let me tell ya, I had a great time putting all these pieces together. I felt like I was 4 years old putting a puzzle together. It took some planning to get all the pieces and colors coordinated in a way that was interesting without being too visually confusing. I hope I succeeded, because believe it or not, it could have gotten ugly in there. What do you think?
