last February I made this book as a present for my daughter who lives in Dallas.
When I started this book, I had no idea on what the design is , or how big it will be. So I had some cheery fabric, lace , trim, ribbons, buttons, and trinkets we collected over the years.
Here is the book, hope you like it.
First two pages, her pic when she was a toddler with her dear granny, a locket of mine, Hamsa (of course) and some writing in Arabic, and some Turkish art.
Here I put some ribbons , and a pic was purchased from The British Museum when we visited some time ago.
Here her dear granny holding my Husband ( my daughter's daddy) when he was a baby! also some old trinkets , lace and some pics.
As you see flowers , lace and some buttons I got from Egypt last time I was there.
Here a pic of myself , and my dear mum and my sisters, and of course flowers . By the way that brooch pin, my daughter bought it as an antique and she used to wear it.
More lace, and ribbons; However, that green earrings is mine I bought in England when she was 4 years old , I decided why not,, let her have it. lol
By the time i reached to theses pages, I decided to throw in the kitchen sink, no more holding back, and I did :)
I love these colors , they are happy :)
Here a pic for her dear granny when she was 5 years old,, and that silver french lace my sister made it by hand , Thanks sis.
My daughter loves van Gough , so I put some of his art on the back of the book. I think it looks nice.
I did not want the book to be in the shape of the letter V,, and I did not want to close it with a ribbon, so I decided of a big spine to sung all the pages and actually look like a book she can cherish.
Thank you for visiting my blog
Lots of Love,
