A few of my favourite things

Hi everyone are you all ready for Christmas I have finished, DH made the supermarket dash this morning while I finished off some wrapping and my very last page of  my Alpha Dictionary which has been a fabulous challenge over at The Craft Barn.  The last letter is "I" and the only words I could choose was Inspire/Inspired/Inspiring which this challenge certainly has done and I stayed in from start to finish yah :)

For this page I decided to only use things that inspired me to use, so I flicked through some stamps, Tim Holtz of course, and then dug around in my bits box and did the same.

 I ended up with a collage of some of my favourite quotes, all beginning with "I" of course, stamps and bits and bobs from the box, the colours of ink are also a mixture of colours that said "use me".  All that remains to finish my lovely book is the cover  which will have to wait until after Christmas but I will post and share.  Thank you to everyone who has shared this journey with me and left comments which have been truly appreciated and  not forgetting The Craft Barn  for a very Inspiring challenge looking forward to the new one in January 2014.

Merry Christmas
