I'm currently working on a friendship minibook for the BGF - it's her birthday on 23rd March so I need to get my skates on.

Having been completely smitten by Trimcraft's new SMIRK range of papers, ribbons and embellishments I had to add them to my stash. (I walked away the first time thinking "I have boys - what can I possibly do with them", second time I weakened and treated myself to the 6x6 paper stack and some glitter tags, oh and some ribbon...) I still didn't know what I'd do with them but had vague ideas about cards - and then inspiration struck. The BGF is a sucker for girlie stuff and, despite not being a scrapper, had cooed over the range with me - so what better than to have the pleasure of making a friendship quote minibook rather than a card.

I surfed the web for ages looking for funny quotes - we don't do mushy much - and found a couple of handy websites: Indian Child and Friendship Quotes. I selected a dozen to work with and am in the process of designing the layouts.

I'm using a PaperMania chipboard scalloped circle minibook as the base and am having great fun raiding my stash for ribbon, embellishments and cardstock to co-ordinate with/complement the range.

Here are the first two pages...

The photos don't really do the finished pages justice as the colours are far more vibrant in real life (or maybe it's the angle of the laptop screen?), anyway I hope you like them.
Update on Mission: Grandpa George - Status: Failed. Pyjamas too small (no larger sizes in shop - and Grandpa George didn't have skulls on his jammies from what I can remember) so Moonshine Minor went as Rude Ralph from Horrid Henry instead. Just as well really as his class had a visit to the local library today and he would've looked a right lemon walking through town in his PJs and dressing gown!


  1. Love the pages are there going to be more?

  2. Yes, I'm working on some green (colour not eco) pages at the moment - will post them later.


Thanks for sharing your happy thoughts. Maisie Moonshine x
