Blogtober 2015 Day 26 - 50th birthday album - part 1

Every year I go away to a beautiful converted barn in Hereford for a weekend of craftiness and madness with a bunch of fab ladies (and a few guys thrown in for good measure).  Secretly the little rascals colluded to make a lovely book for my 50th birthday last year.

It is the most beautiful hand-crafted item I have ever been given and I will treasure it forever - I am so lucky to have all you lovely people in my life and as friends.

I wish the camera would pick up how beautifully the cover sparkles and shines.

Alison's pages (sent all the way from Australia)

 Alun's pages

Carin's pages

Dee's pages

Denise's pages (sent all the way from South Africa)

Fiona's pages (I love these Marillion lyrics xx)

Gemma's pages
