Steam,punk Book

Morning everyone,gosh can't believe I have actually had a bit of  a lie in this morning,got up at 8 15am instead of 6am,the dogs must have been tired yesterday after there marathon walk. Well Alice as Rex can't walk far now bless him. But Alice and I went for rather a long walk,then My sister in law phoned,saying there was a tree full of cooking apples,and they are really expensive to buy this year so off we went to get these apples.
Ha ha there was Pauline with her,stick to pull the branches down,and there we were climbing over hedges,nettles,trying to get to this apple tree finally we got there,and I had to climb up to get the bigger apples,we had such a laugh made me feel like a kid again mind you this morning feel like an old woman,as ache so much. But hey it was worth it.
So onto my wee,book well its kind of a book but,oh you will see in the picture you get 2 of these one lager one and one small one I did the larger one first. I was so lucky as the lovely lady over at the craft barn sent these to me yesterday,tell you how kind of her was that,such a fantastic,store they have to much in there to alter its brilliant.
So I used my,aged gold paint, steam punk graphic 45 papers,skelleton,charm,Tim Holtz,knob and word. 7 gypsies rub ons ,which are the best ever. The leaf is real I picked it whilst on my walk yesterday,and painted it with the same paint and it took beautifully.
Book is available here from the CRAFT BARN. Along with the paint,and so so much more well worth a visit,great service too.
Papers,and rub ons,are avilable from the Craft Emporium,another brilliant website full of wonderful 7 gypsies,papers,rub ons,which are so mega easy to use. Link is HERE

I also made a wee book which is covered with,7 gypsies,papers,and the Alice stamp is available from Blade rubber,maybe small but oh my god they are so detailed just brilliant,the link is HERE
I wil be round to visit you all later off to do the dreaded grocery shoping. I have entered this for the following challenge,s as used vintage,autumn,colors,hallowean with my skeleton,just hope it will be okay.

Wow Cheryl - another amazingly fabulous project - I love it. Fabulous images and embellishments. I agree - the ladies at the Craft Barn are always so helpful and they have so much choice too.

Fabulous Creations cheryl- such stunning books and I love Alice. Thanks so much for you well wishes.....Sounds like you had a great time scrumping apples!
