It's Stamptember at Simon Says Stamp and Show and this weeks challenge is all about books
*Read all about it*
Do you think i have patience....hmmm..maybe sometimes....but not enough to make a project like Randi Parkhust...here....i've showed you earlyer.
This will be a long post, you better take something to drink now.....(:o)

Where does all this comes from?
I follow the blog from Annette. Her Blogname: Srap Happens Here
She's my Paper Artist...you know...she makes that kind of projects you can follow, reproduce if you like beside all the inspiration you get. You'll find a lot instructions and tutorials on her blog. She was also published on Graphic 45 with ....and that's what it's all about.....The Less Patient Secret Book

This is the published Version on Graphic 45 here
A vintage sewing book here
Da Vinci Book here .....my favorite
The Less Patient Book Tutorial here

Can you still follow? (:o)
Ok, that was enough to read...now you can take a look at my version of the *Less Patient Secret Book*

Elly...another really cool piece of art! Love your details! I really like the book and the drawers combined...so that you really get more of an interactive thing going on with this piece.

Das ist ein so schönes Werk.
Ich mag all die versteckten Dinge, Schubladen und Details.

Was für ein megageniales Werk, du hast es wirklich voll drauf.
Ich hoffe, dass du dich auf dem Mekka zu erkennen gibst. Mich findest du am Stempelei-Stand (bis auf die Zeit, die ich vielleicht auch mal durch die Halle bummeln werde)... wäre toll, wenn wir uns persönlich kennenlernen würden :)

Hi Elly, what a truly fantastic piece of artwork. So beautifully created, loving all those little drawers, must have taken you ages to create, a real labour of love. Have a lovely day. XX
