CAPRICES - an altered book

First spread after the title page

This week, I'm sharing some pages from my altered book 'Caprices'.

Showing the niche inside the window, and the drawer in the side

Hope you like it!


  1. Happy pink saturday, sweetpea! As you can see I finally got my "Pages" centered. "Blogger Help" has the answer.

  2. Susie, how clever of you to include both the door and the little drawer.
    Happy Pink Saturday! ~ Sarah

  3. What an interesting type book. I am not familiar with that. It certainly made for an interesting pink show today.

  4. Hi Susie~
    Love your altered book. An art group that I am in did a round robin a few years ago and we had 11 in the group. It was so much fun to see what everyone came up with. Yours is wonderful!
    Happy Pink Saturday!

    Happy Pink Saturday Susie Sweetie...
    What a gorgeous share this evening. I love this little book, and it is so special the way you added a little window for secret stashes, and a little drawer for treasures. Yes those little things are the element of surprise. Love them both.

    You are so talented sweet friend. I love it when you create, as when you create you share and I get to see your lovelies.

    Have a glorious weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  6. Awesome, LOVE this book SO much.

  7. I love the book and I really like it here...I am your newest follower from TrulySimplyPink


  8. Susie, that book is so pretty. I keep saying that I am going to make one too but haven't done it yet. I love how you added the drawer and the niche for your perfume bottle.
    Have a wonderful pink weekend!

  9. I love your altered book. That is very unique and gorgeous.

  10. You are so creative and I know that I can be on the computer way to long just doing a scrapbook page digitally. That project is just lovely.

    Wow! You are very creative! I am enjoying reading your blogs! How busy you are! Hope you are having a fabulous Pink Saturday!
    Sheri :)

  13. Happy Pink Saturday Susie, I'm so glad you stopped by to comment so that I could find you. I'm one of your new followers. I love your blogs. I'll be back often! Have a wonderful week.

  14. Wonderful journal! I love the hidden drawer especially!! Hope you have a fabulous pink week!

  15. I hope you had a happy Pink Saturday. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a post about the pink coat and beauty. Your remarks were spot on and I for one would prefer focus on beauty treatments such as kindness, laughter, etc. It's far better than botox! BTW -I love your videos.

  16. What a clever & beautiful book, Susie ... first time I've seen one like this.

    Have a beautiful week ~

    Pretty darn clever! Thanks for visiting me.

  18. They are so pretty. I like the Chanel bottle tucked inside!

    I think I read about the new Upstairs Downstairs. I'll have to go back to the website and see when they are showing it.

    Happy Pink Saturday Susie and have a great weekend!

  19. Your altered book is so pretty. I love the niche and the drawer! My altered books aren't nearly so pretty. The layers are really nice. Good job. Happy Pink Sat!



  21. Thanks for you comments on my site. Your altered book is very elegant and creative!

  23. Great pink Saturday project :)

    Susie, I just love the book. Even more special with my fave No. 5 tucked inside. (I organized my closet and unpacked some items I had hidden for the move for safe keeping and found my own No. 5 today!) Great stuff on eBay. Watched the video on your next post and then was off to The Supper Club and found out they have a venue in San Francisco close by. I almost forgot to come back and leave a comment. Hope you are done with slushy weather. Have a great week.

    I'm slowly making my way through all the PS peeps. Wow, there are a lot this week!

  25. What a gorgeous book! I just love what you did with it, especially the Chanel perfume bottle. I'm still making my Pink Saturday rounds ~ thanks for your visit. Hope you are having a lovely week.

  26. Djeezzz Susie !!
    What a AMAZING book.
    Would you believe I'm almost jaelous ? !!!
