I just finished another folded book.  I am really having fun making these even though they are very hard on my eyes.  I'm  hoping after the eye surgery, I will be able to see a lot better and be able to have more fun doing the craft things I so enjoy.

I used a lot of materials for this book.  The cross and leaf die cuts are Our Daily Bread and Spellbinders.  The flowers are Recollections and Wild Orchid.  The butterfly is a Frantic Stamper die. The words are Elizabeth Craft dies.  I used Walnut Stain distress ink to highlight the word.  The bling is Bling on a Roll from Walmart.  I also used Nuvo Crystal Drops on the butterfly body.  The ribbon is from a prize I won on The Outlawz.  The designer paper is from Heartfelt Creations.
