Little Book of Secrets

Another swap for UKScrappers this time the Little Book of Secrets. We set a theme and then were randomly swapped with another person and given their theme. I don't mind admitting I was horrified when I read the email which said, "Dia De Los Meurtos - the Mexican Day of the Dead". I hadn't even heard of it! How on earth was I going to manage this??

Well I did a lot of research for a start and the meaning of the day started to not only interest me but inspire me. By the time I had finished the book I loved Dia De Los Meurtos so much I would even like to go over to Mexico just for the celebration as it sounds amazing!!!

I've learnt a lot doing this book and I've enjoyed making it. Its not perfect - but then what is. Hopefully the recipient - she knows who she is if she is reading - will like it. I just have a teeny little bit more work to do on the boxes. Here's the piccies...
