No crafting this week :(

Well I'm sorry, but I don't have much to 'report' this week.

I've been laid up with a rather nasty eye infection, so not really got a lot of crafting done. Just taking a little time out to some blog hopping, although I can't do too much as I'm gradually building a huge 'tissue' mountian because my eyes are constantly streaming!

Anyway, I digress......Check out Glenda's Blog

She has got some absolutley gorgeous Blog Candy on offer!

My brain just went on meltdown and my poor bank balance will be taking a hefty beating soon methinks!

Take care everyone and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Thanks for dropping by

Travel Memory Album cover

This is the cover for a memory album I'm doing from scratch! EEKS! But if the pages turn out like this I'll be dead pleased!

I sprayed the background with Glimmer mists,then stamped and used some Perfect Pearls over the stamps. Distressed the edges and then added the embellishments to the front. The tag is done the same as the cover, the little globes and sayings are offcuts from some scrapbook paper, and the VW Camper van and bug are wooden buttons coloured with distressing ink and perfect pearls. The Acrylic circle is stuck down over a map of the U K (in particular Scotland) As this album is heading off to France when it's finished.

Here's a photo of the inside cover,

This has just been sprayed,distressed stamped and again dusted with Perfect Pearls hence the rather nasty 'shine'.

I really enjoyed doing this, it's so much fun because you never really know what the end result will look like!

Thanks for looking in

Take care everyone
