Birdies & Book!

I made this big peg using the July kit from Bubblyfunk, well what was left! The idea was Caroline's and using mountboard over two ordinary clothes pegs. The pic is of me when I was three......I was sweet then hehe


My daughter has just come back from her first European holiday.....Turkey! I can't believe that it was in the late 40degrees and she hasn't got a tan...just a glow!!!!! Anyway, I made her this A5 book to keep her photo's & bits in. When I saw this paper it just reminded me of Kasbahs etc, which probably are not Turkish at all lol. I have given her some plain card to mount her pic on as some of the papers are quite busy!!!

Here are a couple of the inside pages. They have places for journalling as well because I know that she made a diary and of course has a list or two hee hee.

This pic shows the different papers that I used.

The ribbons round the binding that have a heart with her & her partners initials on!

I used:

papers: 7Gypsies - Zanzibar

my Bind-it-All

Bubblyfunk: July Kit

Thank you so so much for looking, I really appreciate it XXX

I like this book Karen. I don't think the papers are too busy they will make a good background to your daughter's photos.
