Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

Hello friends and followers. Thank you for all the wonderful comments and the encouragement they give me in my crafty ventures. I hope 2013 is going well for you so far.

I saw this challenge at The Craft Barn on my friend Von's blog and I just loved the idea so thought I would have a go. I searched for an old Dictionary but haven't found one so thought I would scan the pages from the dictionary we use and add the pages I make to a book so that they will all be in one place.

This challenge is the letter V and I chose vegetable as my word. I printed the veggie images onto the page and coloured the carrots image with Promarkers. The carrot image I got at Free Vintage Digi Images where there are always lots of images of interest.

The first page of the book I added an index so I know what is where. I am really looking forward to making more of the pages and thank you for the challenge.

Love Chrissie xx
