Check this out...

Look what Dawny made!
She has a brilliant tutorial on her blog to show you how it's made.
I think it's fab and can't wait to play!


Oooooo look what I've just ordered, it's a 'Clippykit' bag,
6 pockets either side to 'scrap' for that
personal touch.
I've also ordered a black suede liner. I thought
I would add black and white photo's with
the odd 'splash' of colour.
Can't wait for it to arrive!

One for the boys....

Make a note....

This is a mini notebook, made using the Bind It All.
It contains several plain white note sheets, plus
2 note pockets, Papermania papers and chipboard tags.
Prima flowers and various ribbons
I have also placed an acetate sheet over the front
and back to protect it.
I have made a few of these, as I think they make lovely gifts.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend, enjoy the
summer hols!!

I have a question....

WHY is Wii Fit soooooo difficult to get hold of??? If it was Christmas....OK ...I could understand it.......but why oh why is it like trying to buy rocking horse s**t!! and as for those people selling them for double and even triple the price....don't get me started! :-[
Phew...feel a lot better for sharing my anger with you guys! ;-)
