Little Album

I had a call last week from a lady at the WI (Womens Institute) ... asking if I would do a talk for them and perhaps have them create a little something ... Wow! Seems one of my friends mentioned my book houses ... So the talk I will be giving in April will be about books ... creating them ... and the many ways to use unwanted books ... after which I shall get each of them to make one of these

As I sold a lot of these last year .. I need to get cracking and make some more to show together with a few other things ... so yesterday I made a little album which will be going to my sweet SIL ... using a little book I picked up for a £1 ...
One of the things I thought I'd show them, is how you can transform this sweet little book ...

into a keepsake when the children have no more use of it

I warn you now that there are quite a few photos

Of course this album is all about Sophia ... and I used Prima's Jack and Jill papers throughout .. mine was a 6x6 pad I had but the large papers are available at Pixie Dust Paperie too

There are some MF embellishments here too and bits and bobs from my stash

Some of these embellies I have had for ages ... so nice to be able to use them up

She's growing up fast ...

... and is quite a dare devil!

... even with her tongue out she's cute! And I added a little envelope for my SIL to put her own notes in 

How I love to look at fat little books... Yep, this will definitely look more interesting on a coffee table ...

Before I go I just want to show you some "happy birthday mail" I got yesterday from lovely Linda Robinson

Such a beautiful card and just look at that fabric wrapping!

What gorgeous gifts! I LOVE them!

Thanks so much Linda ... You are a treasure!

Well that's all for today ... Thanks for stopping by ... Have a beautiful day
