A Smattering of Altered Book Pages & Pink Saturday


Today, in honor of Pink Saturday, I am posting a few altered book pages. I don't know whether they are actually complete - when do you know?

"Remember"
"Choose Gifts"
"The Birthday Fairy"
They are all pages that lend themselves to Christmas. Remember wonderful times with family is a very important part of Christmas for us. Choosing gifts is a special part of Christmas for us, too, because I think most of us show our love by giving gifts. It is really fun to try to find that perfect gift for someone that fits them and their personalities. Watching the smile on their faces when they open them is really awesome!

And last, but not least, is celebrating the reason for the season, Jesus' Birthday. It is often difficult to keep that in mind with all the hustle and bustle and the bombardment from media to buy! buy! buy! But this year, I am trying to focus more on the reason for the season.

I am linking up to Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday. Take time today to go over and visit Beverly and the wonderful bloggers who post to celebrate Pink!

Your altered book pages are very pretty. Yes, when do we know something is done..well here is a little something I heard a long time ago.."How many artists does it take to paint a picture? Two. One to paint it and the other to take the paint brush away." So true.

I truly love the ornament of Santa kneeling to baby Jesus. There are no words to describe its value.

Hope you're in the pink,
Marianne
