Young Victoria Book Update

The first set of pages have gone out to participants, so I thought I would share some photos of what I have made, received, and sent out so far!

My book….

I received these amazing pages from Robin!!

The front opens up and here’s what is inside…Young Victoria book 104

And on the back of the page…Young Victoria book 120 crop

Don’t  you just love that quote?  We are all learning that the Young Queen Victoria was one feisty gal!

Here’s what I sent to Sandy for her book…Young Victoria book 084 crop

Sandy’s theme for her book is “love letters and mementos”.  For the front of her page I used  words from the song “Only You” by Sinead O’Connor which was featured in the movie, and transformed it into a letter from Victoria to Albert.  I printed it onto fabric and then embellished it with some lace, a bit of embroidery and some wonderful french velvet ribbon I picked up  at Silver Bella last November.

Here’s the back of the page for Sandy….Young Victoria book 079 crop

For this page I chose to make a watercolor that Victoria did of Albert the centerpiece, and then added a quote from her about him.  She was really smitten with that guy!

Finally, here’s a peek of a page I just finished, that will be going out into the mail shortly….Young Victoria book 118 crop2

Needless to say, I am REALLY enjoying participating in this project.  Not only does it give me a chance to spread my wings a bit and try some new techniques, but I get to use and share some of the treasure I have been collecting.

  • Sue,
    As always, you have done a lovely job. I almost joined the swap but felt it was too much of a stretch for me.I am getting my first sewing machine on Wednesday and I am so excited!

    I am anxious to blog hop and see what everyone has done. I thought she sounded sooo interesting. Who would have guessed.

    Both Donna and I just drooooooled over your petite inspiration box. You have such a unique way of seeing “outside of the box” and creating something that is uniquely you!

    Hope you are coming back to Silver Bella!


  • Love what you and Robin are doing – how well your styles go together! Hoping to have at least a little crafting time this weekend to catch up on Robin’s page, not to mention my own. Fingers crossed.
