Xtremely Xhaustive

Make a something with something that goes ooooonnnnnn and oooooonnnnnn.
The original idea was from Barb over at Haunted Design House with a little mini book kit that was in a blog win last year. This is the full sized version of the meander mini. A full 12" sheet of CS made into a 3" square mini.

Trust me to start something on saturday and have to go to work on sunday. These pics are as far as I got before time dictated I should blog it.

Cover is from papers at Crafty Chaos.
Chain, eyelets, charms all from stash. The 2mm pearls from Pizzaz Aplenty.

The little roses are homemade from ribbon.

Inside this, some more chain and two images masked and stamped. I know the elf lady is Third Coast but unsure on the man behind the screen. These were both coloured with promarkers.

Inside back cover is a couple of images from Delicious Doodles, coloured with DIs

The spiders' web paper will be continued to the other pages as this is yet another thing in nature that is "very, very long". Plus it will fit in with my theme of "binding chains"

I am entering this incomplete (for the moment) item into the challenge over at
