My first daybook

Hi everyone,

Thought I would share something a bit different with you this evening. I recently joined a group on Facebook called "Daybook Delights". This is a fab group with so much inspiration. Have a look at Cathy Vee's blog to find out more about daybooks. (Also look at her daybooks - they are amazing!) Basically daybooks are like scrapbooks but they are more informal than the 12x12 layouts. You can buy daybooks and lots of accessories by Amy Tangerine, but a lot of people in the group make their own. After seeing all their fab books I was inspired to make my own and thought I would share it with you. Here are a few pictures...

I have sewn it together using some cord I had and just used a compass to make the holes - nothing fancy! Daybooks are great because you can use your scraps - they look more interesting if not all the pages are regular. I would normally go for all co-ordinated papers but wanted to go a bit random with this one (plus I didn't have a lot of double-sided papers to use!). I wanted to fill this book with photos and bits from our holiday in Wales. I have nearly finished it, so will post pictures when it's done.

Thanks for looking and would love to read your comments.
