Happy post.............

 I opened the mail today to find the most amazing book, handmade by one of my lovely customers and sent as a gift to me, I could not believe it. Chris constructed the whole book from scratch using the Prima Romance Novel range of papers and a couple of extra free downloads Prima had offered and I had sourced for her................the book is about 6x4. This is the front cover.................

and opened out to show the binding and the back cover..............
inside the pages are all edged with black and have hidden pockets stuffed with tags and journal notes
each set of pages (signature) is hand stitched


and all bound using the Coptic style of binding
truly just an amazing book and I am so very honoured to be the recipient of such a beautiful piece of work.
Thanks Chris, so very very much.
