I have decided to work on my Disney Album, seeing as we have been back for nearly 5 months I thought I would try break the back of it.
Here are a few of the pages (including some DLO's that I have done this week).
This is the left hand side of a DLO
I even managed to stamp and emboss the background
And this is the RHS of the DLO
This is us meeting the mice - a dream came true!!!!!!!
And here are the pictures showing how the boys charmed Minnie.
And pictures of cinderella's castle changing colours whilst we waited for the night time parade.
Another LO of my daughter, but one that she will cherish forever.
I am a member of a crop, called the Leeds Paper Dolls, but for some reason, Kirsty (our leader) decided that we should start a stash diet together!!!!!!!!!
So, with this in mind and the fact there are a couple of things I would like to buy, I joined the diet and started scrapping. I have to admit that it does make you scrap knowing you are earning toward spending. Here are a few of my LO's and I have even progressed to doing some DLO's.
(aside to this, just look at my daughter's face, she was not impressed that the reason we were having a photocall was not to take her picture LOL).
And once he realised who was stood behind him then this was the result (awwww!)
The week went well until we picked up his AS results, not too good but hopefully the kick up the butt he needs to get his act into gear for the forthcoming year so that he can pass his exams and get into the university of his choice. We have a couple of plan B's just in case but hope we don't need them.
I have been working hard this week, especially as my colleague is off on holiday!!! (who said she could have a holiday LOL)
Unfortunately my DH isn't too well, he has a severe case of conjuctivitis (well it is something more than that but I can't remember the name!) and isn't feeling too well which could all be connected.
DS1 is going away on a youth trip to New York (I never got trips to NY when I was his age) on Sunday morning so I am busy washing and ironing to make sure he has everything he needs. I hope he has a brilliant time.

This was designed during an afternoon with Kirsty, where I tried out different designs on her and this was the one we liked the best.
The first CJ entry I received was Amy's Nursery Rhymes one and boy did her introduction reduce me to tears - it was so lovely.
Not sure even I can guess it from those LO's
but I am now looking forward to receiving the next one from Debby, Favourite Destinations. I have my idea for this, but who knows whether it will turn out the way I planned.
So having had a day off work yesterday I decided to give it a go.
The first challenge were mini books by Voodoo Vixen (Annette) who is the master of the mini book. So I decided I would try the circle album first and here is my attempt at this one.
This is the final cover - I am really pleased with this bit of my album and love the colours, especially the use of ribbon.
The inside was covered with some of the black and white DCVW paper pack I bought many moons ago when I started card making (so that fulfilled the criteria of using old stash)
I have added a couple of pictures but to be honest I am not convinced with the finish of this one, but as I will use it as a sample for customers to see what I do, I am happy with it.
The second album was a square one, and this one just said "baby" to me. I had some papers I bought with a QVC card kit, which once it arrived I realised I had absolutely no idea what to do with it. I have made some of the cards up but was really stuck with using the papers and thought I could utilise them on some LO's. Well, I suppose this is a LO of sorts and I used them to make a baby album/card (hence the back page being free to write a message). No photo's were added this time but I do love the finished effect.
The inside of the book has had some tags made and stamped with precious and cherish and the teddies have been decoupaged.
