30th Birthday Surprise Trip Journal

The completed ATC is still under wraps for the next couple of days until I've sent it off.  In the meantime, please see some photos of a journal I've just completed / started for my bf's birthday trip in May.  He won't find out about this until Valentine's Day - but as he doesn't visit my blog all is good!

Sneak Peak

I have recently started the Certificate in Papercraft and am really excited to be getting along with it.  As part of the first unit involves submiting three papercraft items I have joined an ATC swap organised through the Students Forum.  This will be my first ever swap of anything!  The theme has been announced and it is fairies. 

So, after a bit of trawling through some free clipart websites I have found the following images and I hope to be able to make something up out of these:

Both of these images are really speaking to me, so I may do more than one ATC.  I have only ever made one ATC before in my life so I guess I'm on a steep learning curve!

Nan's Scrapbook

At the end of last year, I decided I would like to make myself a scrapbook but realised that I had very few photos of my whole family and few from my childhood.  I spoke to my Nan who told me to help myself to her photo boxes.  In with the boxes, I found an old, battered and yellowing album that had been neglected for years.  So I decided to give these treasured memories a bit of TLC which resulted in the following scrapbook that I gave to Nan for Christmas...

Hope you have enjoyed seeing some of the pages from this gift.  It was my first ever go at scrapbooking and I am really pleased with the way it turned out.  And, most importantly, Nan loved it  :)
