A Fun Day!

I had a wonderful day last Saturday at a 24 hour crop to raise funds for Breast Cancer Research. I didn't actually stay for 24 hours but some of the hardcore scrappers did. We are hoping to raise at least £1,000, but the final total isn't in yet.

It was so good seeing scrapping friends again and having dedicated time to sit down and actually do some scrapping.

It was a total surprise to receive a lovely kit (via a friend) that had come from a good friend in America, so I put that together. It was very theraputic and I loved the fact that I didn't have to really think about the page design, I just followed the instructions! I put the whole thing together in a few hours and used 2 tubes of glue doing it and had a great time - highly recommended!

Here are the photos, I hope you like them.

This is one of the single 12 x 12 layouts that I did. I wanted it keep it really simple but delicate and used some very girly pearls, Jenny Bowlin Butterfiles and the gorgeous American Crafts rose ribbon.

This is the front cover of the Travel Album. The cover is acrylic and has the blue frame on it and the page underneath has the map paper and the postcard and other embellishments.

More pages from the travel album. I love all the different embellishements from stickers to ribbon and acrylic to the epoxy stickers. Now I've just got to fill it with photos!

Is that 6 x 12 size? A couple of years ago I made a holiday album that size and there was plenty of room for pics and journalling ... I must make another one!
