Totally Tilda DT- Tilda Where?!?!?!

On Anything But a Card! 

That's right at Totally Tilda this fortnight, this is what we want!
Now if you're like me, your immediate first thought is UHH!! NOT a Card! As IF>!>!>
Then the shock will wear off & you too will be able to create something fun, as I have.
I started with these chipboard letters that spell LOVE from Susie Sugar's Die Cut Dreams Store.
What to do with them once I had them?
Then I remembered my friends wedding back in 2009, that I had yet to scrapbook.
A summer wedding with sunflowers & the colors of gold/yellow, brown, black & green as the focus.
Then I made a trip to Micheals in search of the perfect papers & embellies to match.
 Then I came home after almost purchasing a sunflower stamp for $17.00 and asked a friend to whip me up a digi...........more about that later!
The result:

Now let's see the deets.

Let me tell you a story about this letter "E" page!
You know how we crafters get into a zone that nobody can mess with? Well, there I was happily creating my "E" page, when hubby decides he is going to join me at the table. He pulls out his laptop (I betcha thought I was gonna say something else huh?)......and opens it up pushing past some sort of OBVIOUS obstruction.....thereby spilling a can of pop all over the table.......dining room table yes, however at this point in the day it is officially my craft table. I look, do a double take & as he stands there staring......I proceed to curse like a sailor & throw everything off the table onto the floor, just to get it out of the liquid that is soaking into everything. F, F, F ......that's how the conversation went!! I don't think I talked to him for the rest of the night....I went to bed & arose with a fresh outlook the next morning.....thereby creating an EVEN BETTER letter "E" than the day before! Thanks honey! (he still loves me, I think). lol

Large stem with leaves & accents below Tilda's sunflower- gift from Dora (I ended up sponging the already pastel green stem with mellow moss SU ink to match the rest of the greens)

A profile view of the completed "LOVE" Chipboard Book!

Finally I have it all packaged up & ready to go to my there's a postal strike! LOL Hopefully one day she will get to see what I've done with pics of her wedding day!

Challenges for my LOVE book:

Just Magnolia & hAnglar stAnglar- Paper piecing.......( I took a page out of Bev's book & agree that paper piecing this many Tilda's is a feat all it's own).
