Flatfold Notebook

I need to elaborate a little on Nik's gift I got yesterday.

We had a flatfold SAL on NNC which was slotted for the 1st quarter of 2007. Since Nik mentioned she finished hers but said it was a gift and hence she could not post any pics of it onto the Yahoo! Group Photo Album. So I left it at that. As the weeks past I reminded her to post a pic and she said something to the effect 'Oh, I forgot to mail it, I was so busy lately, I'll mail it tomorrow'. Again I left it at that.

But I was getting a lil' suspicious. Those who know Nik, know that she is NOT a tardy person and she's one heck of an organised creature. Okay we all know she's dead busy but yet she's never used that excuse before for her non-doings. So I wait :s

My intuition proved true, she made the flatfold cum notebook for me! Me! Really ingenious, combining a flatfold kinda finish with a notebook cover finish. She's attached this very thick notebook on the back piece of the flatfold. She's even glued a piece of ribbon as a bookmark!

So since pictures speaks volumes here goes:

Inside

I appreciate the details, your time and effort that you spent on this gift for me. Thank you so much Nik.
