Just finished

I've just finished the book I showed yesterday, so here it is.
I used my Bind it all and originally punched just 6 holes but the weight of the covers and pages combined meant that it didn't hold together properly when opened. I was very brave and carefully lined it all up and punched 10 holes in all. Phew they all came out ok an every page! Why do I always count wrong though and cut one wire too many?
I added lengths of different blue ribbons to the wires, starting with wide ones at the top and narrow ones at the bottom.

The back cover with an enlarged version of the front picture and some lettering. I added a couple of self adhesive pearls just because they are the right colour.

A Big Adventure

I've been crafting - printing, cutting and gluing for the past 3 days and this is what I have come up with.
The pictures have been in my camera since August 2010 so before we go away again I thought i'd better do something with them.
Anybody who knows me knows that I have a Disney Stitch who goes everywhere with me, a 2 week holiday to Tenerife being no exception.

He popped up out of my bag in the toilets at the Airport.

I think this picture of him wearing my sunglasses as he lies on a towel is my favourite.

He even came out with us to the Chinese buffet one night.

I love the pic of him trying to eat that giant donut. :-)

Neither of us thought much of the meal on the way home but luckily had gooey chocolate cake to keep us going.

These pages have now been made up into a little book recording 'titch's adventure as he went on an aeroplane and a foreign country for the first time.
Thanks for looking and indulging me in with my addiction with my little fella.
