Altered "Fun" Book

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing an Altered Book that I have been working on for a while....it is still a work in progress....I want to add some ribbons & embellishments here & there to some of the pages. The book it's self is simply a hard bound book I found on clearance for .25 cents. I have been looking and you can find books at Goodwill, and thrift stores for $1.00 and under. I sectiond the pages into 8 groups....here are some of the pages I created in the book. I didn't have time to crop all the photos so please forgive me!
I used several pattered papers....to many to name them all....lots of mis matched patterns...but they somehow coordinate.
I used vintage images that I have collected from various sites and blogs. I have gotten hooked on making these altered books...I have ideas for for making a bunch more of these....the only problem is time!!!! Latlety my head is spinning with ideas....then I get frustrated and overwhelmed because I have no time to sit and create.
I do hope you enjoy this and I love to hear your comments!!!
