I made this large thick book for our youngest granddaughter as an 'extra' surprise present. It is about an inch thick and is A4 size cut in half vertically - full of plain paper, so that she can draw, paint, glue, write - or do whatever ever she likes in it.
The covers are made out of thick robust mount board - to withstand the bashing that it will no doubt get.
Although it's not a work of art - I did take a lot of time and trouble making it - so I thought I might as well show it or you might think I haven't been doing much for a week.
I have also put together lots of arty crafty goodies for her, papers, stamped Gorjuss images, ribbons, a card making kit, in fact a big tin full of stuff (I decorated the tin too - one of those huge tins you get at Christmas full of sweets).
We are off to see the family, and I am taking lots of other goodies too. Home made jams, a sunflower in a pot for Kerys to grow on, cucumber plant, 24 chocolate brownies, 12+ Date and walnut cakes - a big tray bake I made cut up! And I am just off in a minute to bake a huge gooseberry and apple crumble - their mum's favourite.
