'Tilda is a Star' Chipboard Book

I was recently part of a Christmas in July gift exchange on a small board I'm very blessed to be a part of. Now that we have opened all of our prezzies I can share what I made for my swap partner who is a very dear friend & hugsister........Charlene at Scrappygma's Place. I made her this Tilda Star Chipboard Book (she had so generously given me these Tilda images in another swap........aren't I sneaky......LOL). I colored Tilda with my Copic markers.

This was a lot of fun to make even though it was my very first attempt at covering chipboard & making a flip what do you think?

Front cover..........

Back cover.........

This is the recipe:
All Magnolia Tilda images were from an image swap.
Star Chipboard Album (Michael’s $1 bin)
Tsukinek Versamagic Dew Drop Chalk Ink “Cloud White” (edge of chipboard book)
Adhesives used: Terrifically Tacky Tape & Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive
DP: K & Co. “Sparkly Sweet”
Ranger Stickles “Star Dust” on wings
Prima flowers (Michael’s)
Copics used: E00, E02, R20, RV02, RV04, RV06, E31, E33, E37, E41, B00, B02, B05, W1, W3, W5, V12, V15, G21, G85, Y11, Colorless Blender

Can you believe this.........

I went to the dentist yesterday & had a back tooth pulled.........yuck! But get dentist actually CALLED ME last night to see how I was doing! OMGosh......I about fell over from shock! This was my first time at his office & it won't be the last (unfortunately I need more work). But it makes me feel so much better knowing that he actually CARES! What a rare commodity in this day & age.

Just wanted to share that with you since I haven't been posting much lately. I'm working on some things I can't share with you yet..........Christmas in July little projects I'm anxious to show you but can't until July 25th when my partner will see her goodies........don't want to spoil the surprise for her now do we.....LOL

Have a blessed day & hope your dentist is as nice as mine! btw......I'm doing great!
