mini cd book

I joined a Valentine Mingle on byhandartists yahoo group whereby each person was to send a card or atc or something, in the valentine theme to another person and receive something from yet another person. I had no idea what I was going to do. I'm not in the atc mood right now and not into making jewelery either. I wanted to do something different. But what???!!!!

Then I checked out one of my fave blogs, Vicki Bridges, in my links list, and she had done this gorgeous cd book! AH HA! The light bulb went on! LOL I had these wonderful mini cds that my DH had given me, he knows what I like, LOL so I sat for a day or 2 and thought about it. This is what I came up with! Enjoy and please let me know what you think.




I got together some paper that I liked, printed out some images that I have collected, mostly from Dover Sampler, pulled out some wonderful charms I've had for a while, and pulled out the hearts!! LOL The text is cg printed on some CP Watercolour paper that I had 'aged' with walnut ink. I adhered almost everything with UHU glue stick, love that stuff, but I used silicone to put the charms on. I drilled 3 holes in each cd, made DH laugh while he was watching me, 2 for the ribbon hinge and one on the opposite side for the 'tab' ribbon.

I had a lot of fun with this and I'm pretty sure I'm going to do some more with the regular size cd. .... as soon as I get caught up on everything! (sigh)

Thanks for looking!
