Compendium of Curiosities Challenge- week 35

Yahoo! I did it. Start to finish. Thirty five weeks of fun with Linda and Tim Holtz. I am not very good at finishing things so this is a huge accomplishment for me. 
For week 35 our task was "design details". I used this one to finish the cover. I had to cut the heads off the brads and paint them because I didn't have enough in the right color and the wood around the edge wasn't deep enough to drill. I used TH papers. and embellishments with the exception of a few from my stash.


For the pages I cut all of the edges in the "bracket" pattern and mounted all of my pages on them. I added technique titles to each page.


Thank you to Linda for leading us in this fun journey! Thank you to all the great sponsors.  And a really big Thank you to all of the people who have taken the time to leave comments on my work. It has meant so much to me!!  I know it sounds like a speech but I need to say these things.


Thank you for looking!!
