Awards ,etched in stone??

Awards and Etched In stone a mixed heading there girls.
First lets get down to the etching my passion at the moment LOL This is a little note pad I have just finished.
I etched the top section and thanks to the wonderful stephanine lee's book I made a project something like she had in her book(no Im not getting a commission from this book its just so great thats all.
I then used cooper mesh and wired the bottom bit for a different effect,another amazing tin photo and embellishments and Bob's your uncle so to speak.
Im going to add chain to the top so I can wear it.I also used old leather on the back of the book.








I received this a couple of weeks ago and haven't had the time to do what was required once you received it, but here goes . There is nothing like the warm fuzzy feeling that someone likes what you do and that I do inspire others to create. Thanks
