Getting back into Crafting

At last I did something vaguely crafty...well, it's been a while (apart from the Christmas Sock Monkeys!). I had been promising to make my niece a little photo album for at least two years and since her birthday was coming up, I thought it was the ideal time to get it done. Of course, I left it till the last minute and did it all in a day. I had printed out some photos beforehand though, which was a big help. In fact, I had extra photos and made a little tag book for them as a wee extra.

It's not my usual style, I like more grungy, less vibrant stuff, but for a fifteen year old girl, I thought the colours were nice. I did enjoy doing it, although next time I would start earlier because the glue was still drying when I gave it to her! You will have to excuse the photos, they aren't very clear and I took them in a rush (the colours were a lot more vibrant in real life).

Love the little book!!! Have you done scrapbooking? Bet you would be good at it! I haven't done any since I made 4 wedding albums for family, all scrapped out for the time being I think!!!
Thank you for your concern during the bushfires. They are all under control and some are out, thank god for rain!!!

Awww, thanks guys :-) I must admit it was fun just to get the glue and paper trimmer out and play. Yes, Pauline - I used to do a lot of scrapbooking before I got into studying, but I'm desperate to get back into it, I've a ton of photos to scrap! xxxxxx
