Its bubbly time

I tried to post this yesterday but blogger wasnt being kind.

It was my day for posting and i made a LO with Caroline's gorgeous page kit featuring the noir blanc collection from tinkering it.

You can see my class instructions and a little tutorial for making the paper flowers on the bubbly scrumptious site.

I love how this turned out, very shabby chic.

Maximo Park

And here is a little bit of rock music to keep you entertained. Turn it up loud.



Rusty Pickle Blog Hop and RAKS

Welcome to my blog. The official kick off time for the blog hop is 10am UTAH time which is about 5pm here in the UK. So all the blog links will be up by then.

If you arrived via the Rusty pickle blog, thanks for hoping by and i hope you enjoy seeing all the chef's creations and continue on in your hop.

If you arrived via somewhere else or you are a regular reader, then head on back to the Rusty Pickle blog and start at the beginning of the hop, you are in for a treat.

So here is a little project for you. My eldest son has just started his last year at primary school (P7) and now thinks he is the BOSS of the school. It is going to be a very important year for him with preparation for high school etc.

I decided to make a mini album to capture all these little preparations and document his last year.

I took a RP 6 x 6 album and decorated it in rockin america PP.

I took 6 large envelopes and decorated the front side with more rockin america PP and the back flap with pp. These envelopes will be used to collect letters, report cards, ephemera etc. They can also be used for photo's as well.

Next i made pages using red, white and blue CS. I decorated each page with tags, journal spots, coupons and stamped journal cards ready for photographs or little stories.

I decorated a couple of file folders as well for embarrising stuff he doesnt want on display.

I also liberated a few pages from other shaped RP albums such as the star album and the fancy shaped album. The star page will be used to collect "good work" stickers etc

And here are the photo's. Overload, be warned.

I hope its given you a little inspiration.

And now to the winner of last weeks RAK. The random number generator has chosen number 2. And that is Lesley
