What a gorgeous day!

Good morning all,..and what a gorgeous day it is!...The last couple of days have been lovely and I've spent a lot of time in the garden..enjoying it while it lasts!

Haven't put any cards together as yet, but have been practising my colouring techniques. Have lots of images ready to go onto cards as I need them.  And I have also  been crocheting baby clothes for the forthcoming new arrival!!

  I have another project in mind, which isn't a card, but will prob take me a few days to complete, so may have something up on the blog then.  Just wanted to say hello to all, and hope you are all enjoying the weather and your crafting. Hope to get around all your blogs later in the day, but for now it's back to the sunshine!!
Speak soon

Another memory album

Hi again peeps,

Well it promises to be the hottest day of the year so far today!!  Have to break out the sun cream!

I have made another memory album, this time for my daughter in law's birthday today...(happy birthday Holly!!)
It's made in the same style as the last one, using Kay & Co papers 'poppy seed'.  I love these papers.  Each page is made using 2 x 12inch papers, which when cut and folded, form the pockets.  Then I have made photo mats to go inside the big pockets, and then tags for journalling added to each page. The embellishments on the front of the album are also by K & Co, and coordinate with the papers.  I have kept this one simple so Holly can add her own photos and any other memorabilia she wishes to keep in it. These type of albums make great gift ideas, and you can resize them smaller if you wish.  The idea comes from laura dennison over at, so pop over to her blog and look at some of her wonderful creations.
Have a crafty day all!!
