A little while ago I painted a picture as a gift for a friend's new baby.  For just that extra touch I created a little book with a simple story about the picture for her mum to read to her when she is a little older.

Sadly I forgot to take a photo of the painting or the book before wrapping them up and sending them, and didn't keep the images on file.  But today I was tidying a little and found a packet with printouts of the draft copies of each page - rather small and not as crisp as I would like because the printer was not as good as our new one.

I decided I wanted to share them for Manon's  Paper Saturdays - so you can see the pages of the book before it was made up.

Just a few pages - here they are:

I was happy to have thought of a present that would hang in Jessica's room and last for quite a log time.
