ABC Book

Well, it seems it's been almost a month since I last posted.  Although not busy with DT work this month, I have had a ton of other things keeping me busy.   I did, however, find time to work on this little book.  Not quite sure what to call it -- a glue book maybe?  It's not really an altered book. 
It started with a darling dessert book by Susan Branch I picked up at the thrift store.  I've always loved Susan Branch, so this little book was just calling out to me.  I thought her recipe pages would make a good backdrop for some vintage photos and other embellishments to go along with some of my favorite words, starting with A and going through Z.
Here are a few of the pages:
