Scrapbooking and Crafty Find...


Page 1 of my 'Celebrate Life' album is done!  To help me get over my hatred of having my photo taken I've posted the page here for you all to see...  Together with the front and back covers.  I've used patterned paper scraps for the stitched patchwork page border.  Another great way to use up those scraps.

It was library day for me today, and I always have a rummage in the neighbouring charity shops and usually come back with something.  Today's find was...

beaded belts!  A bargain at £2 a piece.  The chains are old and tarnished but the beads are lovely.  Tonight I'll be removing the beads ready to make pendants, earrings and bracelets.

  8. Those papers are gorgeous, I loved doing my album, I think I rushed it a bit as I was getting over excited so I'm going to start another one this week, it was a great course.
