Since I'm older, and I haven't seen a Sears Wish Book in ages, my wishes are a bit different now. Some wishes are for items (like the Swim Spa that I've wanted for AGES), some wishes are for other people and some are secret wishes that I'm not ready to share yet. Well these "things" need a place... I wanted a book to paste pictures in and to write so I pulled out a Composition Notebook, painted the spine white and started to pretty it up. My wish book needed to be sturdy and while I love flowers I just didn't think they would last without a protector - so - no flowers.
I had these great bookplates from Basicgrey. They were sitting in my stash just waiting for a project!!
I'll probably give it one more try and use a little more "rubbing action" to the jewels. Everyone deserves a second chance - don't you think?
