I finally have taken pictures and have my cards and book to show you.  Let me say that if you ever have a chance go to and then go to Kathy's UStream Channel to watch her teach how to make some gorgeous mini books!  This is the second one I bought, and I have to say that the paper is gorgeous, and it is one of my favorite projects I have made to date.  First I will show you the card I made for my mama's birthday!  Tilda's are stamped and colored with PrismaColor Pencils and I also used Spellbinder Nestabilities Hearts as a little extra surprise.

Here is my book that I made ma.  It took me a lot of time for the stamping and all of the coloring of the images.  I took it with me on vacation and finished putting it together at the beach.  I went a little sparse on all of the embellies, as I wanted everything else to stand out and wanted to make sure that it closed properly.  The flowers on the front were embossed, as Kathy taught in her UStream class, and I love the outcome!!  I also put Glossy Accents on the Mini Tilda image to make it also stand out on the cover.  I put feathers on the pages along with little rosebuds to join everything together and also because I thought ma would like them.
As you open the book, you see my favorite Tilda, Sweet Tilda, of all.  I must say that as I colored this image, I knew as I spread the colors that it was the best I have done to date.  I almost hated giving it away, but I love my ma and know she will cherish it.  Since I did finish some of the images at the beach, some are done using Baby Oil and not the Gamasol that I normally use.  The baby oil is much harder to use, at least for me, and I prefer the Gamasol method.
On all of the pages, I found a quote about mas and wrote it out on both sides of the flap.
Here is the inside back of the book.  I love Bubbling Tilda, and the last pictures are of the outside back cover.
