Pam's Paris Book

When I went to Charleston I wanted to bring something fun for Pam so I made this little book. It is made out of a paper bag. I got the idea from a trade I got from the Artnest retreat. The design is by Diana Frey she is a wonderful jewelry designer and collage artist. Her bag had just 4 pages but I made mine bigger by sewing 2 bags together.

This is the cover where I used stamps, the decoration was a pipe cleaner with space dyed chenille yarn wrapped around it and then embellished with beads.

I had a pull out piece that was a passport and I added Pam picture and details

On the following pages I used memorabilia from my own trip to Paris along with stickers and maps and so forth. I also made a pocket and made a copy of the hotel brochure from where I stayed in Rue Cler.

Here I am at the Beach, I am just loving this place.

Here is Miss Pamela.

A view down the beach showing all the beach houses, I'd love to stay at the beach next time.

Such fun pictures and the book is the coolest. The beach looks like it feels good on the toes.
I've finished a page for you and your book and I picked up an envelope to send it in. Hopefully the hard part isn't motivation to get to the post office.:/
