Today is {thursday}...

Lots of photos of projects to share today. But first I wanted to show you what DH bought for me 'cos I had a nightmare journey home from work yesterday (all the Ayrshire trains from Central were cancelled) - wasn't that sweet :)

I made a mini album this week based on Shimelle's class at Fiskars TV - I used 3 different colours of cardstock and some scraps of old Sweetwater paper that I had in my scrap box.
The letters are chipboard cut out using the Big Shot Slim Jim alphabet (I glued the paper to the chipboard before cutting so I didn't have to trim round the letters by hand ) - Lots of Autumn Leaves stamps and blossoms from Angel Crafts - then bound using my new Bind-it-all machine

The photos of Lossiemouth and Brodie castle are not mine but were taken from images off the internet.

Then as I was in a mini-album sort of mood I finally got around to making up this kit I had bought from Melodee Langworthy at Scrapaganza - this wasn't a Scrapaganza class but was one she had taught at a Dutch scrap shop a couple of days before. I plan on using it for some of Kenneth and Kirsten's baby photographs but I haven't got around to scanning them yet - I hat scanning with a passion...its just so boring. Hmmm wonder if I could teach Kenny how to do it :D

Each page is made with a chipboard file folder that is glossy on one side. The glossy side was inked with a pale blue chalk ink pad.

Lots of stamping and inking and rub-ons

As always TFL :)

Off to finish off my instructions for the exploding box class I am teaching tonight - will post instructions for that tomorrow probably
