A little birthday album

What a weekend!

I woke up this morning to another few inches of snow - although I love it, I hate it when it goes slushy and icy. The dogs absolutely love it too, especially Truly, but all three of them went bonkers this morning playing outside.

Their walk was a little wetter than usual, but they had a lovely time and we found another little gathering of springers and cockers on our walk.. you know, I think these types of dogs are getting more popular as most of the dogs we meet on our walks are springers! They are such a sociable dog though, and never a day goes by without one of mine doing something to make me laugh. lol

Anyway, I was asked last week to make a Birthday card for a girls 21st - she was doing a fashion degree, but didn't really like girly colours. It was quite a challenge as most of the 'fashiony' types of things that you find are pinks and fluffy!

However, I kept hunting and came across the most beautiful papers and this is the finished project -


The photograph doesn't do it justice really, as I've used a layer of mirror card on the front and it hasn't come out properly in the picture.


This is the whole of centre of the card, which I guess is more like an album.

The idea for this card came from the absolutely wonderful Jo Dumbleton, and the project I've linked to when you click on her name is the one that's inspired me.


This is the centre of the card, which is where the main image is. I got a few of these images from the Kanban sheet that I'd used, so I cut out the main section of the picture and layered it up with silicone to give it more depth.


This is one side of the album..
And this is the other -


I'm pretty pleased with it, although I wish the lovely girly images would've been less pink.. but I matched it up with some black and white papers from the same collection and it's not looking quite as girly as it could have been.

What do you think?

Right.. I had better make a move and finish sorting out a few bits and pieces for our event at Bullcroft Memorial Hall in Carcroft tomorrow evening - hasn't it come around quickly?!

See ya's later!
