So this is what I came up with I used 2 large chipboard tags & 14 large white tags (7.5" x 3.8") 10 I set aside for the pages and the other 4 I covered the chipboard with.
The front tag I decorated before sticking to the chip board; I stamped the Penny Black Circus Act doggy stamp in mementos ink and I added a little light shading with copics and then I set to distressing it with Tim Holtz Distress inks (I used these colours ; old Paper, antique linen, tea dye and lastly Vintage photo on the very edges)
Then I zig-zag stitched round the tag added the shiny sentiment by Cloud9 Designs, the flowers by Prima and the brads from my stash.
Once I glued the cover to the chipboard cover I bound the book together all the pages and both covered chipboard covers with the Bind-it-all machine and tied BoBunny ribbons round the wires to finish it off. I hope she likes it and when she fills it with pictures of her doggy it will bring her some comfort as she is such a kind and lovely person.
