I've got that shrinking feeling.....

...and not its not me that's lost weight but books that shrunk! This morning in class the ladies made mini books from shrink plastic. The stamping and colouring and shrinking were great fun BUT... ...this was what caused the ladies the trouble this morning - the ribbon lacing...there were a lot of "oh sugar"! and "ggrrrr"! and such like words used - hahaha! The holes in the shrink plastic were made with the Bind-It-All before shrinking and in the card pages with a hole punch BUT putting it altogether with narrow ribbon - it took ages and there were lots of sore fingers and more words... The shrink plastic book cover started out the same size as the stamp - 10 x 7 cms... and ended up 4 x 3 cms...So here are the ladies with their mini books...

Lin, Florence and Q... Jean, Margaret and Pat...
As usual there was loads of catching up to be done and lots of laughter - add in cups of coffee and ginger biccis - what more could a girl ask for.
Bye for now
Sue
