now for the deco

I love doing decos and for those of you who don't know what a deco is, it's a small to medium sized, handmade book made by an artist and passed around to other artist for them to decorate in the theme the owner has chosen. The owner does a title page and the 1st spread to start off the deco, adds a sign-in page, a send home to page and any guidelines she wants the participants to keep in mind.

The Yahoo group that I belong to where the members also love to do decos is Byhandartists and right now we're starting off a music themed RR. I wracked my brains for a music theme for this but couldn't come up with anything that I really wanted to do until last Friday when I was at work. A Barenaked Ladies song came on the radio and my mood lightened, I got a smile on my face and all was right in my world for those few short minutes. I thought there's my theme! What music means to me! This what I came up with.

The book itself was gifted to me by a wonderful lady and I couldn't decide what to make with it til this deco came up, and it's perfect as it's in my favourite colour combo, it just spoke to me.

Dear Mary-Beth
Your lovely goodies arrived to me today. I thank you for such beautiful things - I especially can't wait to use the cardstock images, and oh my gosh your little Halloween ATCs are a treasure!
Thank you
