However, I then realised that all the secret envelopes had the same spelling on their labels! Grr...redid those...and only after I had redone them and were putting them into the album did I realise that I had given two of the six labels the same title....Grrrrrrrrrrr....it was getting very late by now but I did the readjustments of the readjustments and was able to go to bed a moderately happy woman.
Sarah visited today and took me out to lunch at Jackmans & McRoss at New Town. I had a delicious pea pie, roasted mushroom, haloumi and pesto stack, she had a polenta with roasted vegetables.
When we got home I was able to finish the dangles and charms on the album to her specifications. I didn't want to over do it. I had bought a pack of Kaisercraft Sparklets in appropriate colours and so popped them the pocket with the stickers, wrapped it in tissue paper and sent it off.
Now I am anxious to start a new, larger tea dyed album with a couple of the lovely old books we bought a couple of weeks ago. I bought a ream of A3 yesterday so I have more scope with the sizing of the papers. I saw a lovely idea for decorating the spine stitches with seed beads and buttons on Johanna Clough's You Tube channel, a young lady with many great ideas in regard to journal making.
Anyhow, here are just a couple of final photographs of the album, oh I have to mention a site where I found free downloads of some My Little Pony images...I used them on the six "secret" envelopes and have a moral obligation to alert you to the site...all the other required permissions for use have been met, I hope...
Do you like the fun-foam flowers? I thought they were entirely age appropriate. At four years old she probably makes them at preschool...
Bye now, come back and visit soon,
