Anyone for Anya? Anything but a card....

.... so I made a book!!  It's a book that contains all the digi's I have on file so I can just flip through with my cuppa instead of going through all the directories on the computer.  Its A4 in size and it gave me the change to use my zutter which I have had for I don't know how long and never used!

It is very pink although my camera didn't reflect this!
