Ava's word book

Ava's Book.   Ava is Milla's mummy's cousin's new baby.  Ava Rose is her name and she is being christened this weekend in Blackburn so Milla and I set about making her this book.   

 This is the first page.    I haven't put on the reverse pages because for some reason they came out blurred!!   Thanks to Tasha for the die cut swirl...

This is the "V".   I had to put the butterfly on the other side to steady up the arm of the V.  It was a bit wobbly.  The butterflies are from a necklace I bought yesterday from superdrug and pulled it apart!!!  Die cut Tim's flowers from Tash again.

This is the last "A" .

A close up of the front page.

The finished article !   I think they make fab christening pressies.    In fact I am doing one for a little boy - will show that when it's done!

Materials used:  
Zutter's corrugated cardbord
Kaiser paints - pink and white
glaze paint - pink
viva precious metal paint - silver red
the heart and die cut flowers were covered with Terra, heat gunned and then glazed. also rubbed silver red VPM paint on them.
The gems and pearls are all from my Sarah's Cards kits
The stamp is Crafty Secrets - Journeling
The ribbons and fibres and from my stash.
In amongst the ribbons there is a tiny baby's bottle and bib bought from the Button Lady (I think!)

Right I think that's it, I think, cos I am struggling with this new blogger thing.  Just when I was getting used to the other one!!!!!!
Thanks for stopping by

I would just like to add that this is not all my idea!   I took my inspiration (okay I lifted it!) from the wonderful Linda Elbourne.   AKA T!ms's stalker!!!!!!
