Hiding in Plain Sight

I like being sneaky.  When it's for a good cause, that is.  So when I posted back on July 6 and had a picture of some unfinished book pages, little did my friend Paula know that her birthday gift was right there for her to see.  You just have to look under the stenciled pages and painted pages.  But there it is.  Her Fish Book!

It was late for her birthday, but she finally has it now.  It's another one I made in the "Remains of the Day" style.  I used pages from post office magazines, old security envelopes, fabric, odd papers, photos, and some shopping bags from the stamp store that used to be in Louisville (very cool brayered paper).  I loved the book and so did she.  She doesn't know how close I came to keeping it for myself!  I'm content to use one of the photos as a screensaver for now.

This is the most fabulous book you've done (except for mine of course). Paula, I can't wait to hear your thoughts.
