January pocket

Here is January’s pocket of the birthday/anniversary book that I am making.  I still want to add some embellishments to the page.  The postcard slots into a small pocket so i can take that in and out to add important dates.  Behind that I have created a larger pocket which the cards that I need to make for that month will slot into.  It’s large enough to fit  several cards in up to at least 8 x 8 card size.  When all the pages have been completed I will bind them all with my Cinch.
After my pile of ironing was done this morning I was able to sit down and work on the Cornwall Cottage Sampler – I will post an update on that tomorrow.

I’ve just got back from the baby shower which was fun.  While it’s not a very good photo here is a picture of the scrapbook album I bought for Vicky to keep a record of those early precious moments .
Vicky is our youngest son's girlfriend.  They were together for several years but broke up the end of 2013.  Vicky met someone else which didn't work out, but fell pregnant by him.  At the end of the year Bryan and Vicky got back together and hopefully this time all will work out well for them - so in June (or May if he decides to arrive early) we will become step grandparents. Exciting times ahead.
