Today we are starting a new challenge at TIOT -
Hand Made by YOU.
As always you have two weeks to link to us, and projects of all formats
are allowed, but this time no digis or shop bought embellishments!
I made another button back album, using papers from 7 Gypsies. The back, front and back were made with thick card from a drawing block, and covered with the paper. For the pages I made 2 signatures using coloured paper to coordinate
with the DP I used. The signatures are sewn together and held in
place with buttons fixed to the back of the album, hence the name. I cut a figure from the leftovers and decorated the front with it. This album is easy to make:

This shop was filled with Christmas biscuits and tea, which brings me to Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, and here a big welcome to the T gang:
Before I went home on the tram I warmed up with a cup of cappuccino
at a little Italian ice-parlour.
Have great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
