Sorry I'm a bad blogger at the mo - but been a tad busy these past few days.

Yesterday I was at a funeral of an old colleague and friend who I worked with at the local newspaper. She was such a lovely, bubbly lady and to be taken at the age of 53 just doesn't seem right! The funeral yesterday was very reminiscent of my mums nearly 6 years ago (my mum was only 52 when cancer took her from us) so as you can understand I found it very hard. But, I also got to meet up with quite a few work colleagues who I haven't seen for a few years now - and it was lovely to do a bit of catch up (even under the certain circumstances).

On A Lighter Note...
Here is a LITTLE ADDRESS BOOK that I finished on Tuesday to match the birthday book in the previous post. I nipped to my LCS on Monday hoping to get another sheet of the lovely paper that I had used, but I must have got the last sheet on Saturday (sigh) as they didn't have any more. I just had enough left to cover the front and back pages of this, but I have used a different paper for the inside front and back covers.

The paper is by K&Co from LCS (just love their papers at the moment), and, once again used my Bind-It-All. The wires are from Cutting Edge Crafts (great prices, no p&p and excellent delivery).

I stamped the letters using my Studio G Alphabet Stamps. The pages inside were done on my computer. The lovely spotty ribbon is from my dad and the rest from LCS and market.

My hubby has said I should do a few sets of these (ready for Christmas - WHAT!!!!) and he will take them into work as there are a few women who would buy them. CHRISTMAS - I want to have Summer first LOL!!!!
