Omg!!! my poor blog!! a whole week since I last posted!!!!!!

But I have been busy I promise!! I finally finished my uni work ( lou gulps and hopes her result is a pass!)
And I have been working on this wordbook for a friend at work who wanted someting a bit personal and special for her boyfriend for his birthday next week.

I decided to go for his name for the book. I used my plantin cart in DS to make the book base and for cutting some gorgeous Funkyhand papers ( for the A and E page) the D page is nitwits tailwags paper, I find it so much easier to do in DS as I can shrink them a bit smaller than the base page and get a lovely border. I distressed them all with my yummy frayed burlap distress ink.
For the D page I computer generated a little sentiment and printed it straight onto a tag cut from plantin.

I tore a bit of funkyhand paper ( this one is from the dreams come true cd, darkness lifts section) for the tags for amy to write her personal message on to sit in, I did 2 incase its a long message!!! one on normal and one on shadow as I thought it looked sweet!!
For the N page I used this photo of amy's furbaby, the very gorgeous miss Kiki, with daddy. I love this photo!!! the sentiment is computer generated and printed on a couple more tags, awwwwwwww soooo sweet!!
For the E page I used a piccy of amy and dane, it doesnt look too good from my piccy but is much nicer in real life!! I used the you embossing folder in my cuttlebug, it s such a nice folder.

The hearts embossing on the letters and the D page panel are from the cuttlebug love language set.
Right I had better get Little Mo to school and me to work now!!!!

Have a great day peeps, thank you for popping in on me xxxxxxx
