Scripture Book (first try)

I have been trying to make a book of inspirational scriptures for my
Mother In Law, Brenda.
She is such a special person...I truly don't know
the right words to describe her.
She has a heart of true gold!
She has been having a hard time of it lately...
she suffers, as so many do, of fibromyalgia and many other health issues.
Lately the pain has been so bad some days she could not move
without severe pain.
They live in New Mexico...only about 4 hours from us
but it may as well be 4 days away.
Because one of us always has to be at the store,
it is really hard for us to get away.
Anyway...I have been wabting to this for a long time and finally
decided to try it!

So here are a few pictures:
I didn't have any more paper so on the final one
it is a bit different. I went with purple since that is her fav color!

 I decorated some of the pages with diecuts...
but some of the looks didn't come out the way I wanted.

I had to add some tape and paint in the centers because they
stuck together. I messed up when I glued them...
I forgot to add the ribbon, so I had to scrunch it in...
it was all kind of a mess!
When I get the pictures done of the second one, I will post them!

Oh wow!! She will love it!! It's gorgeous!!! It is so nice to read about someone who has a good relationship with their mil. It is sad that you are not able to go see her more often. This book of verses will bring her comfort. What a great gift!
