Birthday book

This birthday book was inspired by the ones made by Net and shown on her super blog.
I've been working on this for around 3 weeks as all the measurements are my own. The first stage was to design and print out the tables on the computer, then decide how to display them and make the pages.The month initials are stamped in purple on tabs extending from the pages. I have a double page spread for each month with 18 spaces. I've included a column to add details of where I know the person from e.g forums, f/b etc.
I've used paper by Paper Adventures for the covers. The Sarah Kay image is stamped onto cream card and coloured using Whispers brush pens. The letters are die-cut stickers from the Brenda Walton range by K & Co. The tiny flowers have been double layered and finished off with a spot of glitter glue. All bound together with my BIA.
