The One with Dawn's Book

Dawn emailed me shortly after I posted pictures of Lyndsey's book and commissioned me to make her a book in pink. Here it 'tis:
It's 5x7".
It has Plexiglas covers.
It's made from all shades of pink cardstock, pink patterned paper, pink glittered cardstock, pink patterned transparencies, and pink patterned flocked paper.
It's bound using the coptic style so the binding is exposed - this is my favorite type of binding.
It's sewn together using light pink DMC embroidery floss which I coated with bee's wax.
From start to finish it took about 6 hours to make.
It'll be great place to store photos, write notes, and journal little stories of her daughter.
This concludes my show and tell :)
