A Gift for Rene

Hello friends

Now that my friend Rene (Stamping in Sunny SA)  has received her birthday gift, I can post a few pics on my blog for you to see.  She BBM'd me one evening saying that perhaps she should get me to make her one of my little notebooks and I was thrilled that she'd asked, but told her that if she liked, I would make her one for a birthday gift.  She was delighted with the idea.

She wants to use this on her craftdesk to jot down notes and I thought as this little Autumn Tilda With Pencils arrived in the post, she was the perfect choice for a stamp.  She's from the new Autumn Leaves collection, purchased from Sir Stampalot.

Here is another view with the ribbon keeping the flap closed. I'm a bit disappointed that the clouds didn't come out dark enough on this photograph :(

That's it!  Hope you like it.  I have taken pics in stages as I made this and must put it together for a Tutorial.  I was thrilled with the final project and will definitely be making some of these as Christmas gifts.

Thanks so much for popping by.  I really do appreciate your visits and comments.  TGIF tomorrow.... yay!!!!

I've been so busy that I don't even know if we'll be getting to see the Olympics on SATV (I don't have DSTV), so will have to wait and see tomorrow evening.  Wherever you are in the world.... enjoy it!

hugs Sharon x
