Something different...

It was recently a dear friends birthday and I wanted to make her something different. I saw this idea in craft stamper initially and decided I'd like to give it a go - with a few tweekings here and there here's my attempt:-

This is the front - the chinese script reads "Carol"

















This is the back of the "book"


















This is one of the pages ..... an aerial view of the finished item!! lol

It was really difficult to photograph as there were so many different elements (and blogger won't let me put all of them on here at once!! lolxx). TFL

How wonderful - I'll have to have a look on their site to see if they have a template.

Really gorgeous - all of it.

What size is it?

I know Paula it is lovely. It is on my shelf in all it glory. The photo's do not do it justice, everyone I have shown it to goes "ooohhhhh" and tries to steal it.
Thank you Carol, its lovely
