Warning!! lots of photo's!

 For a really, really long time I have wanted to make a book, but I've been frightened to because all the wonderful books that are being made in blogland and they're so stylish and the sense of continuity through the books is amazing. Anyway for this weeks challenge at Stampotique I gave in to the make a book urge. Lovely Sarinda is challenging us to use text paper in our creations and I always feel guilty when destroying a book so by making another book I felt like I was recyling and didn't feel so bad.
I featured my furry friend Poppy and when I finished the book I looked at it I realised that if Poppy could write a book it would probably be something like this. I made the inside pages by folding, scoring and cutting a 12in x 12 in piece of paper, and the covers are chipboard and it's closed with some red and white polka dot ribbon which perfectly matches Poppy's collar. Bear with me for the photo's as the book wouldn't lay flat and I had the camera in my other hand . . .
 Yes Poppy, be quiet!
 Poppy and I do indeed believe there are fairies in the garden ;)

I think Poppy is a very wise little pup. All the stamps used are Stampotique, if you'd like a list or a name of a particular stamp please email me, or leave a comment and I'll reply asap.
Thanks so very much for looking, wishing you a wonderful day, Sam xxx
