Basic Grey Angel

I made this angel for a friend that seen it on Two Peas in a Bucket. She brought me a photograph, a Maya Road Tree book and asked if I couldmake her one, this is my interpretation of the photograph she brought me. I used the Eskimo Kisses from Basic Grey to do the entire book.
NOW...Let me introduce you to Charlie ( he is my sweet little Yorkie) and Gracie is our kitty. Charlie is 10 months old and Gracie is 4 months old. When we leave our home we always put Charlie in his kennel, but this one evening we were going with friends for dinner and then coming back to our house for a bonfire. We were gone for 2 hours and in that time one of them or maybe both got up on the table with our TV and got my book that I had so diligently been working on and had about 1/2 done and decided to have it for a snack. When we arrived home I started to show my friend all of the details of the book and that is when we discovered their adventure. All I could say was "CHARLIE" and he took off for his kennel. Hmm... makes me wonder if he wasn't the guilty one.

NOW BACK TO THE BOOK...I looked high and low for another book and was unable to find one, so I did the next best thing. I got me some chipboard and a good xacto knife and took what was left of the book and drew another. I think I did a pretty good job getting all of those scallops to look like the original book if I must say so myself.
Here is a closer look of the JOY banner and detail. I hope you enjoyed my story of the adventures of Charlie and Gracie. Oh, and I gave my friend her book tonight, told her my story, we both laughed and she loved her book. She has the one and only angel book like this that I will make. LOL
