some sneek peeks

of my project. I had a few hours yesterday to get the ball rolling. I was interrupted about 50 times by Matthew and his friend, but it is a beginning. I decided to go with the beach house guest book for my project. I picked up some cool stamps at Bella, some borrowed and some purchased on Tuesday. For the cover I wanted a map of Narragansett. I spent way too much time on line trying to find one I could print with no luck. Then I found a South County map I had saved and decided to go with that. It is not as close as I would have liked, but it will do. I decided to put the title of the book on the flip flop shape cut from a Hambly overlay sheet. To dress it up first, I embossed it with VersaMark and white powder using a Hero Arts background stamp. Can you believe you can use a heat gun an emboss on these Heavy Hambly Overlays! I tested it first and was amazed it didn't melt. Many possibilities here now for the future using stamps and these overlays. Then I decided to dress up the flip flop straps with the white CI button and pearls. I am still playing with some paper behind the button or under the strap for some color. The buttons will need to be secured with some thread also. I love all the dimensions going on on my cover. Hopefully I will get to play a little more today.
