I felt VERY spoilt this morning when I opened up my beautiful CJ this morning!!!  Its been doing the rounds of lovely Bubblyfunk Forum members for months now & its come home to Mama.  I got very emotional looking at each page & have to say that all you lovely people who had a hand in it have done a VERY SPECIAL job to their pages.  This is a bit piccy heavy by the way!!!

My theme was 'What Else?' and I asked for people to tell me what other craft (other than papercraft) that they like to do & to maybe incorporate a sample in their LO.

Here is my cover:

my pages: I made a mini cotton quilt.

Gez worked a gorgeous little cross stitch picture, which looks very difficult to me!

Susie made me a gorgeous Dotee Doll!  She is sooo sweet, I love the colours & her tinkly bell!!!

Beth included a little sketch book full of copies of her drawings, which were amazing, just wish I could show you them all!!!

Elaine made a very pretty beaded bookmark, which I am delighted with!

Nicky decorated a fantastic mail slider & bless her,she popped a magnet on the back so that I can put it on the fridge!!!

Net adores baking but couldn't put in a cupcake but she has still made me a beautiful page!!!

Paddy has so many crafty hobbies that she put a bit of each in!!!  A crocheted flower, a stunning lace owl, a pretty cross stitch , some knitting (love the needles!) and some gorgeous beadwork X

Leigh decorated a domino thats fantastic, Decorated a jigswa piece and made me a tag blanket, which I adore!!!

Hazel says that she gives all hers away so she popped in photos of a beautiful cross stitch tablecloth & a very well done self portrait as well as her history of crafting which is so like mine!!

So there you have it.  I feel so honoured to have so many lovely crafting buddies, THANK YOU ALL AGAIN, HUGS XXX
