Bargains, I love then and am never happy with one or two, no no no, if its a bargain I need a trolley load LOL
So these spiral bound note books were £1 in Asda a while back and when I found them in the class room today I thought its about time I did something with them. They are about 6" square and slightly limited by the coloured stripe, I did not attempt to cover it up just decorate the front. The JOURNAL stamp is real old, not something that sells in the UK as keeping journals is defiantly a USA tradition, we keep diaries.
I kept this as flat as I could knowing it will be given some heavy usage going in and out of bags so no 3D embellishments this time.
The most expensive thing here was the bling, so if you find something similar in the bargain corner and want to do a little project for a craft table or fundraiser, forget the bling but do try the shrink plastic.
I have always had a fear of shrink plastic after the many disasters we had teaching this years ago. But today I gave it another try and realised that I gave up to early and if you keep the heat on it the charm will un curl and lay down flat again, you just need patience, well I don't have much of that even on a good day!
Sorry my photography is rubbish, I know first rule is light, especially day light but its dark here before I even get home from work, and those little pop up tents..............I think the guinea pigs can have that to camp out in next summer!LOL
No animal pic's today, I had a little giggle at all your comments, those are Mark's cats not mine. Anyone who knows me also knows what I think of my cat!
I hear on the grape vine that the DT are up to something, check back tomorrow and see what going on.
