Out of a Hat Challenge13-Little Book

The challenge this week at Out of a Hat Challenges was to be A Domino Book but we decided to include any small book no more than 3x3 inches.

I hadn't a clue where to start but I did have some dominoes so that was a good place. I found the wonderful Artful Musing blog of Laura Carson with this fantastic tutorial. I could have spent all day just looking at the wonderful little book that she had made but jumped in with both feet to start making my own. Maybe one day I will be able to make something as beautiful but for now this is my effort and a big thank you to Laura and all the wonders on her blog

Hope you will venture to Janet, Florence and Sandra's blogs to see what they have made for this weeks challenge.

Sandra had the idea to have this challenge as a swap amongst the four of us as we have become such good crafting friends. I got the beautiful one that Sandra made and I am so thrilled with it for sure-a real keepsake :) Thank you Janet, Sandra and Florence and all the people who join us with their ideas on our challenges it has added a new dimension to crafting for me.
This is beautiful domino book I received from Sandra
