52Q Challenge

Over on the Bubbly Funk forum a group of us have taken up the challenge from Emily Falonbridge to answer a question a week about yourself. Hence the 52Q title of the challenge. The idea is to answer the set question on a seperate card each week, many people use playing cards for this but mine are going to be a bit bigger as i'm using the computer to print out my backgrounds and answers.

These are my covers for the book I will make when they are all finally completed in a years time. I covered thick card and punched holes so that the whole thing can be bound using my Bind it All when the time comes.

The papers are from Hot of the Press Citrus pack, the spotty ribbon is from Ribbon Oasis. The lace, letter tiles and cream plaque are from Kaz in the secret advent thingy. I used fabric flowers from my stash and the brad is a tiny glittered one from Papermania. The letter and numbers are stamped and embossed in purple on pale purple card and painted with shimmery watercolour paints.

It's strange how purple and lime green have become my favourite colours, when Sallie suggested them for her bedroom about 9 years ago I thought it a very odd combination. I suppose after living with it for so many years it grew on me.

ooo Sue this is gorgeous, I love the colours you have used. My daughter had her room deep purple and to start with I couldn't go in it but once she had the pine furniture it looked lovely X

The covers look great, Sue
Purpke and green seem to have such a lovely Springlike feel when they are put together - very calming, I think

Oooh, those are really pretty - the book is going to look lovely once you're all done (only another 49 weeks to go!)

Lovely colours together, Sue. I'm still hovering as to whether to join in with this (a bit late now) - you going to have a fab book. And love your goodies that you collected from the PO - enjoy! x
