Magnolia V Stampovie Challenge



Hi, I made this Birthdays Book for the Magnolia V Stampovie Challenge
Do you ever have those days when nothing you do 'looks' right, well today I spent ages doing this, changing this n that along the way. In the end I think it looks OK. I have been meaning to make a birthdays book for ages and this challenge spurred me on :-) I used the measurements from the Jan Craft Stamper Mag, there's a fabulous album in there designed by Cath Wilson, which I am going to copy ,,,,,:-)
As you can see I used the Tilda with magnolia's ,,, again, (love this stamp) I also used my fave hero arts stamp the fantasy tree, the small flowers are part of the set my mum bought for me the 'stamps happen' one.
Only 11 months left to do !! I intend to put a shrinked Tilda on every page, will post the rest later ,,,,,might add ribbons to the rings too, not sure about that though ! What do you think ??
Thanks for looking and I REALLY appreciate your comments :-)
Lorraine

This is lovely, really great idea. Should do something like this myself as I am the birthday gal over on Sharon Duncans Forum and announce if there is a birthday that day so something like this would be nice instead of the scrap of paper I am using just now, LOL Hazel xox

This is lovely Lorraine. I need more hours in the day so I can get on and make one. I think ribbons on the rings would look lovely.
