Chunky Book continued

This is what the TEN Chunky Books looked like on my ironing board, packaged up in order ready to bind with the satin ribbon. Can you imagine what 22 books will look like?
I had to tear my book apart to photograph each page. I will put it back together and photo it
as a whole book. ENJOY the pages, everyone did a great job. Remember you can click on the photos to enlarge.

Christmas 2006 Chunky Book

Blogger is making me crazy tonight.
It keeps making text double and triple spaced.
((((((((((((((((((( SCREAM )))))))))))))))))
I have my Chunky book torn apart so I can photo each page. I'll try to get
all of the pages up, but not tonight!
Each page is 4" X 4" with enough space on the
left side for binding. I used metal grommets to run red ribbon
through them.
This is the COVER.
It is a 3-D Christmas tree on watercolor paper.
A small tag hangs on side with
3-D stickers.

Below is the flip side of the FRONT COVER, it is an introduction to each artist.

I'll try to photo these in order and give a small description of things that don't photo well.

First Artist Page is Ang. This is the front.

Ang used multi layered papers. A textured card stock, a red card

stock and a transparent piece with an embossed Santa.

The back is below:

The message is gold embossed ink. It reads:

If wrinkles must be written

upon our brows let them

not be written on the heart.

The spirit should never grow old.

This is page 2 by CAROL!

The photo is pretty clear. She used papers, fabric, beads and her

photo when she was two.

Happy New Year!

If I sent you an email with a link to here OR FROM A MESSAGE BOARD, you might want to go to the December post Goodbye 2006.
If you know me, you know why the ruby slippers are up.
The Wizard of Oz is my all time favorite movie.
The Virtues of Wisdom, Benevolence, and Courage:
The theme in The Wizard of Oz has to do with the virtues of wisdom, benevolence, and courage. These three virtues are 'universal' and are highly regarded in many cultures and religions including: Native American Indians, Christianity, Orthodox faiths, Shintoism, Eastern philosophies, Sun Tzu's Art of War, the writings of Socrates and Aristotle, and many others. The reason why they are so important is because they embody moral values and belief systems that most people strive to achieve.
· Imagination can take you anywhere - even over the rainbow
· Sometimes you have to leave home to find it
· Follow the Yellow Brick Road, but always be ready for a detour
· Faith, hope and love can work wonders, but ruby slippers can't hurt either
· When friends stick together, they can work miracles
· Having the courage to ask for what you want is half the battle
· "Hearts will never be made practical until they are made unbreakable."
· The grass is always greener on the other side of the rainbow
· All you need is right there inside of you
· Keep home in your heart and you can always return to it
· When you go out into the world, remember: stand up for yourself, but always be kind to the little guys
· "There's no place like home!"

AND, of course........
