ahh.... finally i can show you....

Ta da........


Charlies journal cover..




i'm feeling pretty pleased with myself ;)

i designed it and took me ages to work it all out with Di's help :) as i wanted the plastic part to be a bit deeper so it would accomodate all the stationary.











i worked on it at my weekend away with the PP's [proper patchworkers]. I didnt want to quilt all over the gorgeous Reindeer fabric [perfect for Denmark memories] so just went around the trees instead.

I found the green trim at Maldon and while i was there was trying to find something for the liner. Anyhow the nice lady there said she had some new ones out the back and blow me down if the circle one wasnt a perfect match. Made by same designer so is very likely from the same range.
Charlie has everything in there, stapler, mini gel pens, sharpies and gel pens. double sided sticky, water color pencils , pencils, textas scissors and whatever else i could stuff in there. In the other side is an art journal but thats a whole other post....



oh and she loves it so that makes me happy :))
