scrapbooking fix...

In the midst of a very busy July, we had carved out this weekend for some much needed family and chill out time. We spent yesterday at Barleylands (where we have an annual pass) with our wonderful friends the Baguettes. The children (7 and 4) and M love each other very much and had a whale of a time!

Last night, Andy was Street Pastoring and this morning had to be up at church for 8.30am for our Family Service with special Junior Church presentation - I was also doing a drama. By the time we got home this afternoon, we were knackered.
So M and Andy chilled in front of Shrek for an hour or so after lunch and I got on with some scrapbooking projects, after being very inspired (and released of some money!) at Sugar and Spice yesterday. I'm working on a BIG project at the moment, very exciting, but also have a few birthday and celebration bits I want to do over the summer. 

So, I made some quick mini albums using just one piece of cardstock:


this is it opened out...ready for inserts, photos and journalling.

This is it closed and ribboned up...guess who it's for?? bet ya can't!

This is another style of mini album using 12 x 12 cardstock but with specially made covers...

I'm also working on a belated anniversary gift for Andy's grandparents which is going to take a bit more research and collection work, but that will have to wait now until after Falcon Afloat which starts a week today!

So it's been a fun weekend and a restful if busy Sunday...Roll on the last week of term!

Couple more pics of our fun at Barleylands...
