...And there it was...gone!!!

Good morning all

My good friend Linda dropped by yesterday... well, when I say 'dropped by', I actually mean that she went way out of her way to visit, on her journey from Bristol, going back up to Glasgow! It was wonderful to see her and the girls were thrilled! In fact, Daisy sat by the door and cried when she went :o(

Anyway, we were chatting (just a little bit, you understand! ) and Linda mentioned a site called 'Cuddly Buddly'. Well, me being 'inquisitive' (a posher way of saying nosey) went and had a look after the tinies had gone to bed.

It's a really great, step by step projects, papers, freebies, templates and more...well worth a look.
From there came the inspiration for today's creations...a little notebook and a pen/pencil box! Unfortunately as soon as they were made...they were gone!! Eldest daughter dropped in last night and asked if she could have them for her friend who is poorly at the moment. So I personalised them, took a quick photo and waved goodbye

Not being the owner of a 'bind it all',(sob :o( ) I used a spiralbound notebook and cut all the little slots so the paper on the notebook cover fitted snuggly...then added some images from the Cuddly Buddly site, a few Prima flowers and some gem stones. Finally I tied ribbons, fibres and lace down the spiral.
The pen box was a template which I downloaded from the same site, cut out, scored and folded ...difficult stuff eh? I made a matching label for the front and added a few gems...hey presto!

I hope it cheers her friend up xx
