I decided to make a box and I used a cardboard book box that I bought from Hobby Lobby. I painted the outside and inside with acrylic paints and added some pearl paint for a different affect. My image is from Michelle Perkett called Alice and the White Rabbit. I used other images from Lewis Carroll's book called "Alice In Wonderland". The watch, Cheshire Cat and keyhole images were found on the Internet. I colored all of my images with Adobe Fireworks and Copic markers. I chose papers from my stash and added hand stitching to the front cover edges. I used gold vellum paper and one of my Fiskars lace border punches. On the back of the book I added a sentiment from the book along with a pocket watch and the Cheshire Cat. Inside the book box I made some stationary using MS Word. The lines look like plain stitches and I added ribbon with stitches and a key charm. What do you think?

I created some magic on this photo that I took of a butterfly. I used Adobe Photoshop CS4 and transformed my color photo in to a black and white photo. I also changed the color of the butterfly by using Layers...
