i participated in the happy little moments class at studio calico a few months ago.  it was amazing.  i have made my fair share of mini albums over the years, but i had never altered an older book.  i loved every bit of it.  and it's one of my favorite books to date.  it's just so pretty.

i finished the book during the class, but i struggled with the cover.  i think i always struggle with the covers for some reason.  it's just so "permanent" if that makes any sense???  finally i took the plunge and decided simpler is better.  i covered it with some of my favorite dear lizzy paper, a doily and a title.  i used some canvas along the spine to make it look more "book" like.












have you ever altered a book?  my favorite part is all of the little bits and pieces sticking out of the sides!!  

fingers crossed that studio calico will have another happy little moments class in the future!!  :)
