Should I call this a hybrid?

This is what I meant to include in yesterday's post, but that one got quite long, so I saved this for today. I suppose this is a kind of hybrid really, not really a glue book, and not really a tag book either, but a bit of both. The pages are chipboard and larger than tags. Ah well, you can judge for yourselves, lol, and decide what you want to call it.

Here it is -


I liked the cover but thought it was lacking something, so I added a little key. Does that make it better?


The beautiful lady is embellished with a real feather in her elaborate hat and proper bling, of course -




And that whatever you want to call it book thingy is going with this tag



and these little bits to another friend. Hope it arrives before Christmas, but if not, then perhaps it will make it for New Year's Day -

I wish you a stressless day, toodlepip xxx

Call it hybrid, call it what you will but I call it a thing of beauty and also the special touch of the tag which would also make a stunning bookmark/
Lucky, lucky friend.

Liz, whatever you want to call it, add beautiful to the description!

And here's another I saw - a book just filled with different shapes and sizes of envelopes to fill with memories and to embellish! Loved it!
Thought of you!

Merry Christmas!
Hugs, Diane

This is a treasure and will become an heirloom to be handed down to another generation I'm sure.

I especially love the 'popular song' page - the rows of notes are beautiful.

I've just come from Dorthe's blog and see the wee treasures you sent her - so yummy!
And I've just become a follower of yours too Liz!

Love your blog, so full of exquisite pieces made by you!

Christmas blessings
