My Board Book Has Returned to Me

The Altered Board Book Round Robin I have been hosting came to a conclusion last night when six (well, seven) of us gathered to return books to the original owners. For the past 12 weeks we have been trading books all around the city of Salem, altering two pages, then passing on the book to the next woman on the list. Last night was our REVEAL. A special surprise guest was adorable Olivia, daughter of Destree. Olivia had done her own altered book and wanted to share it with us.

Olivia poses for a pre-reveal photo.

Olivia garners courage from her Mom to show us her book.

Destree sees her book for the first time.

Dawn enjoys having her book back.

Laura is obviously tickled about something in her book.

Patty is pleased.

Gerri, an original participant, had to drop out early on. What she didn't know was that we continued to pass around her book, each of us doing two pages. We invited her to join us last night so we could surprise her with her completed book!

And then there was me - I LOVE my book!

We all LOVED our books!

And here is my completed book in its full glory!

Now when's the next round begin?

How inspiring! I LOVE the idea, and seeing the images of the books makes me realize how much more experimenting I could do on mine!

Yay, Dayna!
