I did get a bit of work done at the bench today.
I tried out this project
(great site for ideas and how to stuff)
- anyway - I followed the instructions, and I was fine up to the bit with the frame and making the pockets. I just could not see where she was coming from (or how it would end up!) so I ended up creating my own pocket system.

Then I did it again - using one sheet of heavy double sided scrapbook stock, and a lighter, contrasting pattern paper for the pockets - and I cut notches on the pocket edge so you could really see them. I also used a magnetic clasp to keep it neat. It is fairly plain because I had not decided it's place in live while I was making it - now I know it's destined to be an album/'book' I can add loads of extra bling. After having had a play I think it's better in the lighter weights - and it's a really novel album!
