Back to work......

Easter seems ages ago although it was only last weekend, I have had the week off and I'm back to work tomorrow, which means no more lie ins for me. I have had a lovely week off blessed with warm days. I also had lots of time to craft and made this album using a Heartfelts Creations 12 x 12 paper pad called Raindrops on Roses. I followed a tutorial by Shellie just using black bling on a roll instead of white and different flowers to the one in the videos. The handmade flowers are Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies called Tattered blossoms. The following photos are all of the pages in the album with the flaps and pockets shown. The punch I have used is a Martha Stewart punch

Front cover

First two pages, flap open on the left page.

Photo below shows the flap up on the left hand page, the flap 
on the right page also folds out.

the page on the right has a waterfall flap

I'll post more pics of the pages later in the week 
as this is only half way and I don't want to bore you 
with a photo heavy post

Natures work......

Evening peeps hope you are well and enjoying this wonderful sunshine that we are having, I've managed to get in the garden and do some pruning, I've cleaned my kitchen units and cleaned the floor, I even managed to get some crafting done a well, I'm making another mini album and I'm on the last page so pictures to follow.
Today sees the start of a new monthly challenge over at Kraftyhands, and the theme this month is Natures Work. I have used the In Sympathy Cd for these two cards featuring these lovely Lillies, I've added white and gold Frantage to the images and butterflies.

Have a great evening

Well I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter and have not eaten too many chocolate eggs, we iced so many at work on Friday and Saturday, we were all pooped after the weekend and I slept all afternoon yesterday. I'm off all week on holiday now so I hope to catch up with all the jobs around the house and garden that I have not had the time to do.......hopefully I can stay awake.
Today sees the release of a new Cd from Ooh La La Creations featuring the art work from Paula Oakley. The launch is on Create and Craft at 2:00 pm, here's a couple of samples.
