Altered book and a special gift for 2014 Christmas ~ Snow much fun!

Altered book for some little ladies at Christmas time.
This altered book snow balled after purchasing two snowmen globes for our youngest grand daughters Lulu (Louise) and little Helen for Christmas this year. Papa shared years ago that snow globes are very popular at their houses...big or small...expensive or not...they love snow globes. 
The characters names in 'Frosty's Snowy Day' were replaced with the names of all our six grand daughters. I ran out lists of names on mailing labels to create my personalized stickers. 
One idea led to another and why not 'photos'?

Beth and Anna and Frosty sledding
It's going to be a challenge to keep quiet and let the little ladies discover they characters in this very fun meaningful story. There is a page where Frosty catches a little boy who almost falls through the ice while skating. Pieces of jagged cut plastic was attached resembling ice. Soft purple felt and silver glitter glue were applied carefully for a magical touch. A cloth ribbon is usually added to my altered book for safe keeping.
An altered jewelry stand for Marvelous Mary (my sis)
The stand fit perfectly into Mary's Christmas box for mailing last Tuesday.
