PINK SATURDAY

Itty Bitty Pink Book Club

Happy Pink Saturday. Bev from How Sweet The Sound is hosting yet another wonderful Pink Saturday. If you stop by her blog you can visit many pink posts.




A while back the lovely Nancy Gail from My Crafty Little Page contacted me and extended an invitation for me to join an ITTY BITTY PINK BOOK CLUB.




Nancy took a photograph of all twenty five pages that she created and topped them with a fancy bow!



Mary Ann of Follow Your Bliss hosts these lovely ITTY BITTY BOOK clubs. 23 people participated in the Pink one and we all had to make a total of 25 little pages. Two extra books will go to a breast cancer survivor and on extra one will be an auction copy to donate for breast cancer awareness. These are Mary Ann's pages.




Nancy's pages are lovely, and they encourage everyone to get their mammogram.



So, I took a print of one of my paintings, made it tiny 3.75 inches x 2.5 inches landscape. Yikes that is itty bitty.



Embellishing this tiny is a challenge. Here is what I came up with.




Of course glitter had to be involved. What’s a craft without glitter? I chose Martha Stewart's pinkalicious pink glitter.

The back lists our information and I dedicated mine to my friend Judy who is on the path to recovery. On the back I took a really teeny print and tucked it into a cropped moo card.



A bit of ribbon, a teeny charm, and they were complete.



DSC04235So, now I mail these to Mary Ann and she will take all twenty five and combine them with everyone else's twenty five and create a cover, bind them and mail each of us an itty bitty pink book. One will be auctioned for a local breast cancer awareness benefit.

My creation

I just love how these itty bitty pages look all lined up for their photo op. I hope you have a wonderful Pink Saturday and that you stop by Bev's place and visit all the pink posts today. Don't you just love Sting? His music continues to get even better and well, he just doesn't age a bit does he? For this post I chose his song Until.

This is such a great thing in which to participate. Kudos to each of you.

Hi Karen,

Thank you for your post. I love your music too - Yay Sting! He's so talented. The roses are only due to God showing us how to grow them! There's a neat article in one of the old Victoria Magazines about a "little french rose lady" who grew really nice roses.

Love, Susan

jeanne said...

Karen all the itty bitty stuff would drive me a little itty bitty crazy. Too much detail for me, but what you have done is awesome. I admire your artistic talent. Just beautiful.

I too love Sting, I guess because I have listened to him for so long. Smile. Telling my age. lol.

Hugs, Jeanne

Your itty bitty pages are amazing. I wish I had signed up. It's such a great group.
I'm enjoying Sweet Six Studios as well. I have a few items I've purchased (glass bottles & a paper lantern) but have not made yet.
Thanks for visiting my blog today :)

What a great idea. Your cards are just lovely. I love the touch of glitter. The ribbon looks nice. There is something about pink and blue that is just so nice together. I think the auction idea is wonderful.

take care,
