Shopaholic and Stitching

Hi Everybody,

Time for another ATC collection - this one is stitched animals:

The monkey was layered onto a bronze base card slightly smaller than the ATC base, and flowers added to the bottom. The parrot was layered straight onto the ATC with a green frame placed over it and butterfly gems added to the frame. The chick was mounted onto a fancy label of patterned flowery paper, layered onto the base ATC.

These are being entered for:

Shopaholic Ties the Knot by Sophie Kinsella
This is the third (apparently) book in the Shopaholic series. This one is about the main character (Shopaholic) arranging her wedding day. There are lots of incidents and things become completely out of control, but that is really all to say about the book.
I originally came into contact with the 'Shopaholic' titles when my friend told me that I must read the one she had just read and lent it to me. I think I got about 3 chapters in before giving up and handing it back. However, it is often the case that books you struggle to read, you get on well with as an audio book. Unfortunately, this book is not like that - by CD 3 I was sick of listening to it - seriously, nobody actually acts and thins like that do they????
The only reason I finished the book was because I wanted to see how she sorted everything out, and the last two CDs were actually quite listen-to able (is that even a word?). I do not think I will be getting any of the other books out to listen to on my commute to work though.
