In the Garden / In the Library

I started this wee project not really knowing where it would take me.  When a new friend, Debbie Ryan, mentioned a blog called Craft Room Challenge, it all fell into place.
They run a fortnightly challenge and this one is to make anything but a card, inspired by the garden. I missed the deadline but it doesn't matter because it fits with the current challenge of "In the Library"
Having been to Finn’s classes with Debbie, she will understand where I got the inspiration for this wee book.
Front Cover:
Back Cover:
Inside Pages:
I chose the colours for the covers based on the Autumn leaves that should be starting show about now but are yet to really show their true colours of the supposed season.
I am not sure whether I will keep it or gift it.  I have several people in mind that I think would enjoy it but I may just look at it for a bit longer while I decide, lol
Cheers, Esther xoxo
