A labour of love..!!!!!!!!


Good afternoon, hope your all enjoying a lovely Sunday where ever you are..
I just popped on to show this book, it's a scrap kind of memento saver really,it has taken me far longer than I thought, {Last Monday to be precise.. } and as I told my good pal AuntySue earlier in the week, I was sorry I started it..lol...
ANYWAY....
A BIT PICTURE HEAVY, BUT HERE GOES...
I took three 6x6 boards, cut the centre one in half to make a spine, covered with material that is wadded to give a soft touchy feel...
Each page is made from A4 card, folded in half with a pocket fold at the base for tags etc;, I also left the tops open, again for tags and bits and bobs...you know the script I'm sure...
As you can see.....lots and lots of stamping, paper choosing, die-cutting and general hair tearing going on....it all took far to long for me, my hands can't stand the strain I hate to say, nor can my nerves....
The little boxed envelope on the back there is for spare bits , well you all know who has it....Mia is the reason it ever got finished.....lol....
I think you have suffered enough...thanks soooooo much for looking....it could be a while before I attempt another......but it will be even better....lol...
Enjoy your day....
Hugs, Janette.xxxxxx

It looks gorgeous Jannette, I particularly like the way the pocket part of the page is secured with ribbon, so pretty. I've been dabbling with mini albums a lot recently, so I know just how much work (and paper lol!) goes into one of these. As you say a real labour of love, but so worth it. :) xx

Wow no wonder it took a while to make, the covers must have been hard work and then all the pages inside,
I hope she appreciates all the work that went into making it.
Hope you have a nice week
