PINK SATURDAY - THANK HEAVENS ALBUM

As always, I'm stumped for something pink to show on Pink Saturday (it's so not my colour, but I am a great believer in getting out of my comfort zone, and pink is so warm and friendly.)

So this week I decided to toot my own horn and show a little handmade album I've made: a very girlie Brag Book for a mother, grandmother, aunt etc.

 All photos copyright Susie Jefferson

A sweet little A5 handbag-sized Japanese stab-bound album decorated inside and out: the overall size is 15cm x 10.5cm (5.75in x 4.25in) with 12 pages of marbled pink card, all bound with pink organza ribbon.

Hope you like it! (I just put it into my Etsy shop - only took me about 2 hours to list it).

My blog of choice this week is U Create - with some wonderful make-its, including shaker style boxes, a twisted fabric flower drum light shade and all sorts of lovely stuff. Do take a look!

    Happy Pink Saturday Susie Sweetie...
    This photo albumn is just precious. Perfect for any little girl baby. Just perfect. You did an awesome job. Looking at it has given me some ideas of what to do maybe with the one I am going to make for our new grandson that will be coming in June. Your style is so beautiful.

    As always Susie thank you for sharing with me. I so love it when you do. Have a beautiful Saturday sweetie. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

  5. Susie that is the sweetest pink inspired book - you are so creative and should never hesitate to toot your horn!!!! My mum always taught me that.

    Susie, I'm in such a funk because Google just won't update the storage I've recently paid for and I can't upload any photos from my PICASA account where Blogger stores them! What's a gal to do when Google has NO customer service in place either by phone or e-mail? I've spent hours trying to communicate with Google and Picasa to no avail - details on my post today without pics of course.

    Where do you keep your pics? Do you have any suggestions for me - you are so savvy when it comes to computers! How does one upload photos directly from MY PICTURES - as some gals seem to do? Should I scrap this Blogger blog and open a new one in Typepad? If that's a better way I'll do it even though one has to pay! I'm tired of Google, they are way too big and very unfriendly.

    Sorry so many questions, just reply if you have time. I'm so behind now keeping up with blog buddies because of all this frustration, I could scream!!

    Have a lovely weekend - hope Spring has come to London as my best friend (whom I'm traveling to Africa with) is visiting for a week!
