Birthday Wordbook

Hi fellow bloggers, sorry I haven't been around much lately. With spring arriving I have been spending alot of time in the garden preparing for the lovely summer I have my fingers crossed for this year. My baskets are planted up and doing nicely (bit of a chore though bringing them inside every night to protect from frost) and everything is looking beautiful.

I found the template for this wordbook in a little craft shop near Stratford and the samples they had on show convinced me I needed one. The company that makes them is called 'Colour My World' and they have several different templates. I have to say that although I enjoyed doing it, it took a long time to decorate the inside and out. As you can see, there's plenty of space for photos and messages to make a lovely keepsake for a special birthday. The paper is from HOTP , the punched shapes have been done with paddlepunches and I used Bind it All wires to keep the pages together. I'll be busy trying to catch up with you all soon. X
