Mini Album

I do apologise for being AWOL. Oh my goodness I just realised it's been quite some time since I posted, almost a month ago I am so sorry. Its been a bit of a roller coaster here! Some very sad and emotional times but with a few highs thrown in and just never enough hours in the day. I have been very busy volunteering at the girls school running their canteen and doing other P&C related things not forgetting back doing 4x4 club stuff and then weekend just past we had an awful storm front lash Perth where we made World news and they are forecasting another wild afternoon and night advising everyone to stay indoors, Perth doesn't normally gets this severe weather. Mother Nature sure is not happy :( we have trees down, girls cubby is battered and damaged and we lost power for quite a number of hours, almost 10 hours I think it was, but otherwise not to badly damaged, I feel so sad for those still with out power and it could be days before they have it returning to normal. So lets keep them in our prayers and thoughts and hope there isn't too much more damage.

Well during these last few weeks I have been scrapping, just a little here and there and have a beautiful mini album I made to share with you. Originally wanted it finished back in May as it was hubby & my 28th Wedding Anniversary :) but just could not find the right photos to go with it and needed to add a few finishing touches, I am really pleased with how its turned out.

It was also part of my May DT kit for WIld About Scrap, packed with lots of great products including Zutter 6x6 and Perfect closure and Tattered Angels mist.

I used lots of Donna Salazar papers from my stash, I love these papers and they look great just left as is or ink them up and make them grungy, just so easy to work with. Lots and lots of Timmy products, glimmer Mists and Prima flowers and anything left laying on my work area managed to get used lol!

Using Zutter 6x6 Craft Cover, Zutter Owires 3/4" and Zutter Perfect Closures Heart from my May DT kit from Wild About Scrap

I took Donna Salazar Botanique paper from my stash  and then I covered the craft cover and cut the rest of the papers to 6x6 and using the Owires and my Zutter binded it all into a nice little mini album
