Monday 3rd May 2010

Welcome back to my blog. I have just returned from a 2 day spa break with 2 of my really good friends. We had a wonderful time with lots of giggles, pampering and excellent food and wine.

Just before i went away for the weekend i decided to have a go at making a storage book for my nesties. I got the original idea from the Craft Stamper mag March 2010.. It was quite interesting to make and very different to anything i have made before. I used the rings rather than by Bind it All so that when i add to my collection of nesties i can add some more pages. the front cover is made using quite thick cardboard and then covered with the wallpaper we used to decorate one of the walls in my craft room.

Anyway i do hope you have all had a lovely bank holiday weekend and thank you so much for popping by and having a look at my blog.

take care and look forward to "seeing" you here again soon
