Hard to believe this gorgeous little mini album began life as an envelope!!! The inspiration came from a fabulous lady called Laura who's blog just blows me away! I have made several of these now and they are becoming quite addictive! The papers were from a kit I received well over a year ago but for the life of me I can't remember who they're by! Such a shame because I've really dragged them out over the last couple of weeks and I have nothing but tiny scraps left now.
Over at Keep it Simple the theme is Gold Dust and I made this little card which has now gone into my memory album. All the photo's are of my two boys at various stages of growth (and hair length!!! LOL!) The gold dust is the chandelier which was stamped with versamark then heat embossed with gold glitter embossing powder. Much more sparkly IRL! tut...

I have created a new page on this blog of items that I am loathe to part with. The magpie in me wants to keep everything I have 'just in case' I need to use it in the future, but the sensible me knows that I have to start getting rid of things that I haven't used in ages because a house move could be on the cards soon.
I have put one or two items on for now but I will be updating it on pretty much a daily basis for a while, so even if there's nothing that grabs your fancy right now, please keep checking back as more items will be added regularly.
Also, please bear in mind that I work during the day so if you don't get an immediate response from me, I will reply as soon as I get home.

Now, you can be forgiven for thinking that you may have seen this before somewhere, because my project this week was heavily inspired by an article I saw in issue 73 of Simply Cards and Papercraft by the very talented Su Pennick! I would love to show it off to Su but sadly I spent a couple of fruitless hours scouring the web yesterday for her blog, to no avail. So if you know her, or know where she lives in cyberland, I would be really grateful for a link. I have never in my life bought a craft mag because of the cover project, until I saw this that is. There was no way I couldn't buy the mag and I fell madly in love with the entire project. So when I came to make my concertina tag card using Su's original design as inspiration (I'm sure it would have been a lot easier and a lot quicker if I'd followed her instructions!!!!!) I never imagined how much fun I would have making it! So much so that I'm halfway through project no. 2 now!!
Moving on to my next card, this is my very quick and very simple offering for Keep it Simple.
Right, well that's my offering for today. Please get over to these blogs and play along with us. It would be fab to see some new players along with our fantastic regulars!
