My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

17 February 2012

Something Different

Afternoon crafters! I can't believe it's Friday already!  Where has the week gone? Back to work on Monday for me :O(

So I have been working on something a little different for me and something I have wanted to do for ages, but never seem to get the time - a mini chipboard album using the product samples I received from Michelle for her website Mishelflo Creative Crafting.  My cupboard is full of these board books and scrapbook albums, so it was nice for me to finally take one out of it's wrapper and would love to know what you think of my first attempt! Beware it's picture heavy! LOL.  The album consists of 12 pages, but I haven't shown them all.
