Last year our local "Used" book store, called The Book Garden, http://bookgarden2.com/, had an altered book contest in the month of April. I decided to participate just for fun, because I am NOT an artist. I had fun cutting out pictures from an old falling apart version of the book "Animalia" by Eric Carle.

I didn't win of course, because the talent was unbelievable. Some real artist got into the project and "went to town". Maybe I can find some pictures of what they did. It was truly remarkable.

Kind of "out does" mine. Hee Hee!!!!
