Step Outside Your Box Saturday - Books










I have altered quite a few board books over the years but this one remains one of my favourites. I have long collected passages from books that inspire me and beg me to read them again and again. I decided to alter a board book and create spreads using some of my favourites. The book I selected had tabs so I named the pages according to the theme of the quotation. This is my submission for Step Outside Your Box Saturday this week.

Oh Heather, this is so beautiful...I have yet to do an altered book (I start them but never finish - my bad LOL). This one is truly a work of art!
