Something special

Right i can finally show you what i made for my best friend Elke for her 50th birthday instead of a card....It was something i saw in the Craft Stamper Magazine it is a year book and the idea is that you make 12 pockets - 1 for each of the months of the year.  My thinking was that Elke would add photos and pictures and souvenirs from her special year of being half a century old !!!! lol she'll love me for saying that won't she????

Hope you won't get bored with all the piccies but thought i could show you in its entiritiy (good grief have a spelt that right) lol


and the next..

and the next...this one is only fixed at the top of the frame so Elke can put a piccie in
next (are you still with me???)


She really is the best of friends...

next..this one i added a shopping bag cos one of the best things we do is "shop"
next (nearly there)
almost over!!!
and the final page
Each page has a flap on the end and a folder to add the mementoes of her very special year
I will update this post and tell you what she thought of it.

Ps Elke if you see this thank you for being my best friend
