For the Love of Animals at Allsorts

 Lolo is the theme chooser at Allsorts this week and it's

For the Love of Animals, a favourite of mine.

 Now I nearly went with the predictable (for me) dogs and/or horses but, as I am still on a mission to use old stuff, had another treasure hunt in my stash and found a Paper Boutique pad that suits the theme perfectly. 

For something a little bit different I made a journal using some envelopes and armed with the paper pad set to work covering the pages and using the sweet images for journalling tags.

This is the front cover. It fastens with some gaden twine. The label pulls out of a little tuck spot. I think the label itself and sentiment are from a Tonic die set.

These pages have a belly band that holds a journal tag and a pocket with a kraft tag and a sweet hedgehog tag too.

A little notebook, bound with washi tape and a couple of labels on these pages, edged with lace.

These are my favourite pages, I LOVE that sweet fox and am really pleased how the litle notebook turned out. You can see where the Cherish the moment tag pulls out on the right hand side and the paperclip is attached so the little notes can be puled out to write on.

What a charming journal! The use of the Paper Boutique pad for covering the pages and incorporating sweet animal images is both creative and heartwarming. The attention to detail, from the garden twine fastening to the adorable fox and hedgehog tags, adds such a delightful touch to each page.

Adorable is the first word that comes to mind. So sweet, Sarah. Love your papers and all the pretty tags, and pull outs. This will make just the perfect gift for those special people in our lives. Just a little something something for no reason other than I love you :-) Might just give it a try and give it to my granddaughter who will be 10 very soon.
