Artful Reading Club - March 2013

This month I chose to read The Beach House by Jane Green.

I actually picked up this book to read in December while I was vacationing in Daytona Beach, Florida.   I did not have time to read on that trip and set the book aside.  So while we are having cold weather it sounded like a good time to read about the beach.

I had a very hard time reading this book.  It did not catch my interest.  It was very easy for me to read a chapter and put this book down for days at a time.  There were a lot of characters in this book and   eventually they all had a connection at this beach house.  I found the second half of the book held my interest more than the first half but I would not recommend reading the book.  There are too many books to read so I would pass on reading this one.

I started with a 6x6 background paper, used torn images from magazine, did some inking and stamping and decided to put book title on the page.

Paper Tubing Challenge

Thought I would share two mini albums I made out of paper towel and toilet paper rolls.  Added tags and pictures.  This was for a challenge....while it is not original....I did do the challenge and actually put pictures in the mini.  Most of them are sitting around with no pictures in them.
