Happy 50th Birthday Present for my lovely Sister

Hello and a happy Sunday to you,
I hope you are having a lovely day, whatever you may be doing or where ever you may be.
I thought I would show you what has been keeping me busy these last few days.
I am very late in getting my lovely Sister's 50th Birthday Present made - so late in fact she turns 51 today. Oh my goodness - how slack am I!!!!!!!
So the last couple of days I have been a busy little beaver working away to try and get this finished so that I can send it to her - better late than never!
But thought that I had better take photo's to show you all first before I send it. 
I'm pretty sure she always forgets my blog address (must be an age thing hehehehe) so I think I am safe putting it up here before she gets it.
It's a journal of her 50 years.

 There are 14 different sections - for particular special memories,magical moments, favourite foods, fun things she has done and heaps more. Here are a few of the pages:

And this is the final section - like a bucket list I guess.
Each section has pages for her to fill out her memories. With pockets for little souvenirs etc.
I was going to embellish each title page a little more but it has ended up being very thick already - so I had to cut down.
Anyway that is what is keeping me so busy.
One week of holidays to go.
I have had a couple of crafty days with my lovely crafty buddies and I am hoping to get one more day in before I get back to study.
I have been doing a few other crafty makes - so I will share them in the next few days.
Have a great afternoon,
talk soon

Hi Joy

What a lucky sister! The book is just beautiful. A lovely keepsake which could be passed down to her children and then their children of her life. You should make one for yourself on your journey through uni, that would be interesting.
