Glue Book Part 2

I was thrilled to see the enthusiasm expressed about these glue books.  So many of you commented you'd like to try these and it seems the idea is spreading like wildfire. 
I showed a lot of my favorite pages last post but I wanted to show you the cover I made as well as a few of my other pages.
Here's the cover:


I had previously created the insert and had it matted with an ivory mat.  I decided after I had attached it to the cover that I would stamp the script squares and butterflies all around the mat.  I was a nervous wreck, because I thought for sure I'd ruin it.  Amazingly it came out just right and everything fit!
Here are some pages that show how I tried to fit my collage into the design of the book -- which as I said had very large flowers throughout:

And a couple more of my vintage image pages:




This last one was a super easy one, but I was just so glad to find a place to put this collage sizing wheel which I never use!

Your cover is SO beautiful Louise - I enlarged it and just took it all in - oh my!
I actually think you have gone further than to create a glue book - as you have built around gorgeous book pages - which is just as nice as filling up a whole page!!
I have been enjoying myself too, just creating with paper - bliss!
