the inspire me thursday prompt this week is "book." when i saw this i knew what i needed to work on. months ago... i don't even know how long ago, i started an altered book for olivia, my daughter. it was my first altered book and i never completed it. i started on another altered book called "wings" which you can see here and put olivia's book aside. she was not happy about that! so this morning i worked on revamping a few of the old pages (some i will leave as they are--i'm not crazy about them but i am at a loss on how to change them.) and then i did a few new pages. i changed the cover a bit, adding a vintage leather change purse i bought at an estate sale earlier this month. inside i put a one dollar bill i received years ago when i was in college. it had the name "tricia" written on it, in handwriting much like mine and i have kept it since as sort of a good luck, money is sure to come my way sort of charm.
my goal is to complete this book before i move on to another project. i will hopefully be posting more pictures before the end of the week. olivia will be so proud!
