General Ledger 1957



I've had my eye on this book for some time now and I finally got to bring it home.  It's a bank General Ledger, dating back to 1957, it is such a great size, 8 inches wide by 18 inches tall, with numbered pages and writing on virtually every page (nothing personal), and the heading are just beautifully lettered.  I'm going to use it as a journal, but am going to make sure the original shows through in places as it would be a crime not to.

Having got it home though I have loads of cards that need doing before I can play, my niece is 21 next week, my BFF is 40 the week after and the week after that my ES is 18. . . .OMG, and I havent done anything for any of them yet.
 
So here are some pictures of my new love . . . 

Can't wait to get painty with it, have a great weekend everyone, I'm off to make a 21st card.

what a great find, but dont be tempted to do too much with it. I usually scan some pages of something like this so I can use it for cards etc. without spoiling the original. have fun

You're right, I am well jel! Where did u get it from? I NEED to know! Have to say though, I don't really agree with fairy thoughts above ... what it needs is a few layers of paint, inks, stamps and images LOL! So, have you completed any pages yet? Have you? Come on, we need to see!
