Two More Notebooks

Hello fellow bloggers and crafters - 5th January already aaarrrggh - I have a feeling this year is going to go very fast LOL!

Well, I finished making notebooks to take for teachers today. Again, I used the Whiff of Joy image, Melinda with book, coloured with promarkers. Papers from the Kay & Co stack - there are still so many gorgeous papers in the pack - I think it'll take me years to get through LOL!

I used the Sew Easy Tool again, with the scalloped head, to stitch down the side, but it is not showing very well on the photos. It added texture, and looked good IRL.

Please excuse the poor photos - it was still dark this morning when I was taking them, and I got flashback!

I'm entering these in the following challenges:

Kaboodle Doodles - Anything Goes
Flutterby Wednesdays - Open
CES Challenge - Anything Goes

For the teaching assistants, I put together some packs of Snowman Soup (hot chocolate mix, white and dark chocolate fingers and marshmallows), with very simple toppers. I didn't get chance to take photos of them, they didn't look particularly special as I did them in a hurry - but they went down well with the teaching assistants.

Well, Eleri has come out of school today with an invitation to a joint birthday party, so I'm gonna have to get my thinking cap on for gifts and cards - hope to have something to show you next week!

Bye for now. Thanks for popping by, and I hope you call again soon.

Love, Andrea xx

I came over to ask what Snowman Soup was, but you've already explained it :)
so my next question is how do you package it?
