Lovely weather isn't it...NOT! I took Dobby out for a walk last night. It didn't rain on us, it just poured with water! Both of us looked like drowned rats when we got in!!
Never mind, perhaps my colourful lickle book will cheer you up?
Whilst on leave from work, one of my colleagues left the company to join another firm a lot closer to home and nearer to her small children's schools. So, as has now become a tradition here, I made her a lickle book for everyone to sign...
Our company colours are orange and purple so I chose the orange as one of the main colours and mixed it with black. Perfect colours for this time of the year me thinks. The covers were made using MME paper. The large flower to the bottom right is the last one of a pack a friend of mine brought back from France for me. The others are a mix of Papermania, Prima, Kaisercraft and die cuts.
The two leafey fronds are cut using a TH die.
I fancied making some windmills to compliment the design on the paper, no idea why, and just fiddled with a square of paper until I was happy. I attached them with the glue gun (which I managed to burn my fingies with - should have had adult supervision me thinks) and poked them into a TH birdcage diecut.
Now on to some inside pages...Now Steph is French, so I used some of my 7 Gypsies stamps which I won some time ago to add a little je ne sais quo (don't expect moi to spell French correctly now will you?). What is embarrasing is that when using these I realised that some have never been used - eek!
My favourite stamp on the inside cover...
Some of the saying stamps were borrowed,from my matey. I have also used some TH stamps, TPC Studios and others.
Some of the little strips are Snippets from my London album I made earlier this year. Waste not want not!
The whole book was sprayed with some TH Heirloom gold glimmer spray. Very shimmery which you cannot see from the photos.
I understand from the Girls in work that Steph loved her book and was a little emotional to read it in public. That is nice to know.
I am joining in with Shopping our Stash as they are looking for Fall colours. After seeing all the lovely oranges of trees last week then I think this is very autumny.
Right, as there are many Snippets in here I am taking this over to the Playground. Hopefully the smell of damp souwesters will have died down now and there is some hot chocolate on the hob!
Thanks for calling by.
