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!
