i actually had a productive afternoon today and ended up making the tagbook i'm giving my nan for christmas - it's a memory book, with photos of all her grandchildren in it. i wasn't intending to finish it but once the creative flow started, i didn't want to stop halfway through. now there are still christmas cards and the collaged box for kristy still to make, but 1 out of 3 isn't too bad now ^^

the papers are from scrappy chic, the blank tagbook, letters & embellishments are from marcella - i think. i threw away the packaging so i can't check again, but it was all from lincraft anyway! i hope it looks okay, and i hope my nan will like it, although the photos are cute enough on their own so she probably won't care too much if the rest looked crappy ;) although hopefully it doesn't.

also i washed my car, and the office is looking a little bit more organised {ahem... well, not so messy, organised is stretching it!}. zine packages and grab bags to put together tonight, send out some of the christmas cards i've written up. i watched Chicago and most of Star Wars: Attack of the Clones while i crafted, and goodness, isn't it a shame tomorrow's monday again ?

That's such a lovely present!

Our drama group did something similar, but nowhere near as pretty, for our teacher when she retired. Worked very well!
