I had an knee operation, so I had to lay in bed for almost two months. I was getting bored en my grandmotherís birthday was coming up so I decided to make her a scrapbook.
The base of the book is make of birthday cards, which I decorated with pieces of wallpaper samples and cardstock.

Let me know what you think!

I just started sewing about a year ago. I had never really learnt how, so I thought myself.
