A (slightly) pink Domino book for Pink Saturday

I finally plucked up the courage to tackle a domino book. I had been admiring the beautiful books I had seen on other blogs and really really wanted to try my hand at one as well. They are so small though, the thought of making one scared me! I know, very silly. Anyway, yesterday was domino day. I wanted to use some really sweet original 19th Century Victorian scraps I had bought a while ago. They are tiny, really tiny, and I thought they would be perfect for a domino book. I found some gorgeous pink braid in my stash, the prefect size for the side of the dominoes, and thats why I am linking this post to Pink Saturday over at the How Sweet the Sound blog -


The side -

The front -

The back -

Inside -

The outside -

For a first try, its not too bad, and I am pleased with it.

Just a couple more pics, lol, because I am so excited about it -



DON'T FORGET, THE GIVEAWAY FINISHES TOMORROW!!!!
