Ive been a busy bee- see what ive made

Its one of my best friends birthdays on monday and besides making her a card i wanted to make her a little gift too,
she has been a bit down of late so i wanted to give her reason to smile and know how lovely she is,
So i thought id make her a little keepsake book, its only 10cm in diameter but as i went of my own design and measurements lol i wanted to keep it small,
I chose laura ashley papers as i know she likes that stuff, i made up 9 sleeves for the insides and decorated them with a lovely stamped quote, mostly friendship ones with the feel good factor
here it is from a different angle!! what do you think? i used stamping up seam binding ribbon to fasten, 
here is one example of the sleeves, i made all the tags with my punch and layered them all up, used pearl rust brilliance ink to stamp, the quote stamps are from papermakeup stamps and kaisercraft stamps,
i really hope she likes it??
i know its possibly a bit plain inside but didnt want to overdo it lol
id like to enter this into the following challenges
1. Divas by design - Friendship
2. Cute card thrusday - autumn old (the colours are autumnal and there is gold there)
3. Paperplay - Autumnal tags
4. Fab n funky - Autumnal colours
5. Papertake - Anything goes
6. Pile it on - I spy with P...(peel offs/Pages)
Im off for a meal with tha girls tonight and hubby has just phoned to say gonna be hour or so late as stuck on m1 !!!!! bugger, so off to beg mother to keep eye on boys till he can fetch them otherwose im not going out after all lol,
