Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Another Friday is upon us, and Christmas is just round the corner Gulp.
So I am joining ERIKA HERE with a Oldie for Friday.
This can be anything you have made in the past even if you haven't shown it on your blog.

So here is mine for this week.

This is a word book I made from scratch didn't use a template that you can get for these.
I had to stick a few layers of card together to get nice sturdy pages.
The large letters were how ever an old letters template to which I added the rest of the pages.
The papers are from the Debbie Moore CD Cracker Box Mice.
I added some ribbons to the spine of the book, and some embelishments too.

Thank you so much for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I know there are templates for almost every shape and design going but there is something intensely satisfying to me in making it oneself. This is fab Jenny. Perfect. hugs Mrs A.
