nyc memory book ... thanks to Michaels Stores


I have finally finished my three nyc memory books ... I made three copies - one for my dear friend Karen, who received hers the other weekend, one for me and one to send to Michaels  head office to thank them for sending me to New York to see the Martha Stewart Show.


I created all of the pages digitally with a combination of my pictures, nyc maps, vintage papers & postcards, and other digital elements that I created or bought on line ...

 
I left space on the back of each page so that Karen and I could each write our own handwritten notes about the trip ... I used BasicGrey chipboard books as the base ...


I tied a bunch of ribbons to the binder ring and added a little jewellery chain that I made ... I added a piece of the nyc subway map to one piece ...


I'm ready to send this off in the mail tomorrow. Thanks again Michaels ... we had a wonderful time!!!
