Projects - Have A Peek....................

Hiya All!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a few projects that I thought you may like to see.
I have been busy at work for the past week and I am just catching up with my messages.
I have finished quite a few mini albums.

This is a mini album that I made for my friend Kelli's Daughter, Lindy.  I hope that she likes it.

I used pink paper bags and some retro paper.  I really enjoyed making it and I hope she fills it with pictures of her family and friends.  She made me an absolutely fabulous picture of a bird and I Love it to bits so I made her this album as a thank you.

This is the charm that I made for the side of the mini.  It's made from silver beads with letters on.

This is the mini that I made for my friend Kelli.  We decided that we would swap full size mini albums after swapping kitchen roll tube minis earlier this year.  It was totally inspired by Kathryn's Prima Pastiche Paper Bag mini album only I used the Mariposa paper line.

This is the inside of the mini album.  I used purple paper bags, I know I managed to part with 8 of them for my friend.  She has really cheered me up when I needed it and been so generous I really want to thank her for being my friend.  I put my heart and soul into this album and it took me months to make.  I think it turned out very nice.  I just hope that she likes it.

This is a paper bag mini album I made for Teresa Dennis.  I joined a swap on My Scraproom and it was a fall themed paper bag mini.  It went out today and she should get it at the end of this week or early next week.

This album had acrylic tags in and a page with pictures of England on.  Her daughter is coming to England to study soon and she wanted a page about it.

I have also made my Christmas Kits for Irene Cordovas Christmas 2 part swap.  I will be sending them out soon I just need time to get to the post office.

I have almost finished the 2 Christmas Minis that I have made for a swap on YPP.  They are due out on 25th of this month and I will post pictures at a later date.

I also have a Christmas Daily Mini to make.  It needs 31 pages, 1 for each day in December.  I am looking forward to starting this but I dont have much time it has to be sent by 20th November.

I hope all is well with you all.
Much Love, Hugs and Kisses

Me + 60 hours = heritage mini!!!!

Hi All
I have been crafting for 4 days straight to finish my first ever kit mini.  I joined Irene Cordova's Heritage 2 part mini album kit swap.  I made up 7 kits and kept one and sent 6 away.  I got 5 kits back from 5 lovely ladies and it took me 60 hours to make the mini.  I am sending it to the hostess so I am really nervous about what she will think. Here's a sneeky peeeeeeek.................

That's the pile of coin envelopes I had when I had finished putting the papers on.  Looks good already but there's more.................

This is the inside of the mini.  You can see the fully embellished coin envelopes peeking through.  I had so much fun and once I started I had a hard time stopping.  Maybe one more picture..................

This is the back fully finished.  I had to use every bit of space to fit everything in and on the mini album.  I will make a video when I get home.  I would do it here but my camera battery is really flat!  this is what I have been up to this week.  I have another mini to make and I have already started it as I am on nights now and 12 hours doing nothing would be boring indeed.  Who knows, another 60 hours could bring more mini magic!
Much Love, hugz and kisses

I am home again for the week and I have a few photos to share with you.  I unwrapped my halloween bags and took photos before I sent them off and Iley said they had arrived in America last week.

This is the top of my bag.  I got these spooky hands last year and finally found a use for them.

I sent all the bags off with a lolly in them.  Yummy stuff.

This is the front of my bag.

This is the back, tada!!!!!!!

I also made a rope necklace from a kit that I bought last month.  It took me a while to get into it and it's not perfect but now I know how there will be no stopping me.  I have bought all the stuff I need to make a few more.

It looks so pretty.  I really enjoyed it.

I think that is all I have to show you for now.  I am going to have a relaxing week, well, as relaxing as I can make it.

I hope you all have a good couple of weeks and I will report in soon. I have 2 mini albums to make and I have just finished 2 mini's for friends in America.  Kelli and her daughter.  I will post pictures when I can get them taken.  I need to get them posted this week sometime.

Loads of love, hugs and kisses to all
