Eliza Doolittle from Pygmalion

Tiddly Inks the challenge #63 is to make a reading inspired project.  I chose to use the "Priscilla" image from the Steampunk collection and this week's freebie, the "open book". 
The reason for choosing to make this project based on this book is because my Son-in Law is an 8th grade English teacher and he teaches this book during the year.  I had not known that the movie, "My Fair Lady" is based on that book.




What i did:
I searched the internet for a quote about Eliza and printed off the quote and attached that to the open book.  i altered the dress of Priscilla/Eliza slightly to have that black and white look from the dress in the movie.  So then i decided it would be nice to actually have a book/easel card...so i made this one up., by adding a bit more to the end of the card so i could fold it into a book. I also used my cricut to cut out the title and flourish. But no, could i stop there...i had to make some pages for the inside of the book and line the inside cover. LOL
