No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

What glue did you use Billie ?
Everyone else at the retreat used the same bookbinding glue that we used for
the actual binding. For the end papers I used good old UHU - that's the glue I
always use for practically everything. A lot had wrinkly papers but mine didn't
wrinkle and I put that down to the UHU.

It's lovely, Billie. Smashing papers.
Bummer about the wrinkling. It's no easy task getting those endpapers stuck down evenly.

Looks great Billie. I was one of those with very wrinkly papers, but in the end I tore them out and started again - although it wasn't a very easy job but worth it in the end as they were nice and flat ... I used UHU the second time round, like Steph. I am a great fan of that glue as it does seem to work well on most things. I also used thicker papers when I had a second go.

The one at retreat went lovely, I don't have two sheets of the same kind so I might have to go with a plain colour I think I have a dark brown.
