Aimee's Birthday-cum-friendship-cum-memory book is finally finished.....there is no room for anymore pages, it is a very FAT book!
I'm really pleased with the front cover. After all the panic and stress over what to call it, but by the time I'd put her name on and added the numerals for her age, there was just the perfect amount of space left for a nice big flower - so that was easier than I was anticipating.
I used Basic Grey "Colour Me Silly" papers (Thank you Lorraine at Scrap Revolution for getting a set to me so quickly!) throughout the book so all that colour matching hassle was taken away from the start.
Most of the ribbon came from Bea at Ribbon Oasis - if you've not checked this place out, then you really, really should!
I'm feeling so relieved that it's finished, but actually apart from a few minutes yesterday when I'd got tired and hungry and made silly measuring mistakes and consequently wished I'd never started the thing, I really enjoyed making this. I think I went a bit over the top though hehehe
OK, I'm not going to post all the pics in one go because Blogger would have a hissy fit, so I'll show you over the next few posts/days all the pages in the book.
The inside front cover has a little message for Aimee from us, about why we thought this would be a nice gift, and what the book is all about
I've tried to incorporate photo "corners" on the pages where I can, but some will just have to be stuck in.
This was the really mad bit - I suddenly decided that a maze book would be a fun addition........I'll show you the inside another time!
