You know when you get an idea in your head and it is such a great idea that you just HAVE to do it? But then you realise the logistics of completing the task in time alongside other last minute projects, and of course normal daily life, are not actually that favourable... but you decide to do it anyway? Yep, that happened here! I wanted to make something special for Louis's teacher because she really "got him" and he has really blossomed in her care. I wanted to say a bigger thank you to her than my normal end of year projects so I decided to make her an album that she could use for her honeymoon photos and ephemera, or even her favourite moments from her wedding, which I knew to have a teal colour scheme. Sarah's S J Crafts challenge for August was to make something holiday / travel related and to use something old and something new. So with a week to go before the end of term I set about it..... ahem.....
I used an Ikea album with a snowflake on the front but I don't think its obviously a Christmas album. I added some bling and ribbon and a butterfly because I used butterflies through the album too. The chipboard butterfly shape that I used here is about 4 years old... gulp!
Finally the back pages with a spot for summing up and another little envelope full of labels and cards for them to add in her own time when and where she / they like.S J Crafts! Because it is the summer holidays you have until September 6th to enter your project.
I'm just back from holidays myself and looking forward to getting some of our wonderful memories scrapped. I shall be around to lots of blogs to say hi again really soon.
Bye for now
