Notebook ... And Garden

Oooh.... The weather has changed ... it's quite cool now but this last week has seen the gardens flourish so that's a good thing ... so nice to look out and see fresh green leaves on the trees ... the Forsythia and the blossom ... 



and the lilac tree is full of buds...



even my lily of the valley is also coming through .. I'll take some photos of these once the flowers show

I met up with a friend yesterday ... she's 84 and used to attend our Philosophy group ... such a sweet lady ... I made a little notebook for her


A  mix of papers but the beautiful flower you can see in the frame is from a set of tags created and given free from this lovely blog  - Lilac & Lavender well worth a visit
I used a faux leather fabric to cut the butterfly on my Sizzix ... the PTI die cut through this fabric like butter!


Just to add more interest I added a butterfly sticker on top of it 

I'm off to grab a latte ... my hands are freezing! I hope you have a lovely weekend 

Till soon

Yes, it got a bit chilly in here too, such a shame as I was really enjoying the lovely weather! Beautiful note book Ros, delicate feminine colours, and I love the lilacs! Have a lovely weekend ;).

Lovely photos from your garden Ros, yes, the warm temperatures of the past weeks have certainly made sure of this major change in the gardens. Your notebook looks lovely, with that fine lilac image. You've made someone very happy again!

Beautiful notebook, Ros. I am sure she will love it. It has been cooler here the last 2 days, but is going to be almost 90 today! Then back to the 60's during the week. Talk about crazy weather. :)

Hugs~

I love your card and Lilac-n-lavender blog. She is so sweet to share amazing images. I just wonder though as to why the link you show gives UK URL where as I know she lives in the US and I visit her at
