Had a couple of days off work last week so managed to do a bit of crafting. When I was clearing out the kids clutter after Christmas I came across some little board books approx 3 inch square. I thought they would make cute mini books, so they have now become part of my clutter!! I have filled this one with snow pictures seem to have rather a lot of those lately!! painted the book with a silver dabber and then used dcwv The Sweet mat stack for the cover and magnolia ink Vintage Christmas paper inside. Everything apart from board book and charms available from craft den. Thanks for stopping by.
