Oh maybe I should do one for my dad too - don't think he's do it though :roll:

They are two really good questions Lisa - wish I'd thought of those.

It was my first altered note book so it's not up to some of your standards :oops: I'm not 100% happy with it tbh - I may add some more ribbon or flowers.

It's a pritt stick hanging from the spine in case you wondered!!



I'm not one for sharing my work so I'm a bit :oops: :oops:

I've got a list of questions if anyone wants them give me a shout although I did tweak them and didn't use them all

Kate, what an absolutely goregous, stunning gift you have made for your mum. :angel: Most definately made with lots, and lots of love :) :angel:
I would be ever so proud if I could produce something as beautiful as that. The poem is just so perfect, incredible indeed. Well done to you and thank you so, so much for sharing your work with us. You should be very, very proud indeed.

Kate that is absolutely lovely and a great idea - no need to feel :oops: about showing it!
I'm sure the idea could be adapted for other things too - maybe for new parents to write about events/thoughts/feelings in the first months/year of their child's life etc

Totally fab!
