Address Book

Greetings! A beautiful rainy day here in St Paul. (I probably won't be saying that after 6 straight days of rain.)
Today's post features a special address book my mother asked me to make for a bridal shower gift for someone at her church. I thought the day of address books were over; now with technology as it is. (Can you dial your friends manually with your cell phone? I know I can't.)
I used a little address book from Target and covered it with some papers from Carolee's Creations. The paper has stitching on it which helps make it look like I spent hours working on this. I added some ink to the edges to make the paper pop. I used my dies from QuicKutz to add the lettering, small flowers and photo corner.
In order to keep the paper flat and protected, I used Modge Podge for the adhesive. I also added some gems and Tim Holtz's new Distressing Stickles. (Just like the Stickles we all have grown to love, but with a more distressed and pearl-like finish. Ta Da. Now to let it dry and off in the mail it goes. Enjoy!

Very mean you didn't spend hours on this? You should make more of these and sell them.
