Thank you Lynda.

Some months ago when my life went belly up, Lynda sent me this gorgeous tagbook with each page for what I am. I'm sorry it's taken so long to show you.
Thank you so much Lynda. I think it's fabulous.

I did it with Basic Grey Scarlet's Letter paper and tags, which I knew Lorraine liked. There's a different word on each page: for those who can't quite make it out, they are Daughter, Sister, Mother, Grandmother, Artist (the one you can't quite see) and Friend. I was inspired to make it by two Marks & Spencer's clothing tags, quite thick ones, which immediately said "mini-book" to me and became the covers. I wanted to do a book for Lorraine and the ideas for it came really easily - most unusual for me as I usually struggle!

Problem was, I sent it a day or two before Lorraine's Mum was rushed to hospital, after which things descended into total chaos for her, one way and another.

Very timely then, liking those papers, I still have at least a sheet of that in my stroking stash. I know Lorraine likes that green, so a very cinsiderate gift, very neatly made too, well done.
