Craft Barn Mini Album - Page 5

Phew ! Sorry about the disappearing act ! Life has just been so manic here over the last couple of days and it looks like its set to stay for a week or two but its all good stuff so I can't complain.

Izzy started ballet a couple of days ago and she loved it ! I think I was more nervous and fought back the tears sat outside the room waiting for her !!! My baby is growing up ! I hope she carries on enjoying it as selfishly I want a piccie of her all dressed up in a tutu and ballet shoes !

I'm also not sure if we are being as mad as a box of frogs but we decided to buy a tent and camping equipment this week and we have booked our first weekend away for next week - gulp !!! It seems to be the only way we are going to afford a holiday away so we are giving it a bash ! Think of me won't you ?!!!!

Anyway, back to what you have come to see ! My next page for my mini album. I need to get my skates on now and make the other 5 !

The DP's are October Afternoon "Thrift Shop" and I've attached these by sewing them with my sewing machine.

The flourish is a Bazzill chippie which I have covered in crackle paint and inked with vintage photo distress ink.

The flowers and doily are all from my stash and I have sprayed these with pearl glimmer mist.

The sentiment is a Cats Life Press stamp.

I took this photo of the girls only a couple of days ago.

Right, must dash - lots to do !

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave.

Have a great Sunday !

  5. Hi Jo,
    your pages are all brilliant, sorry I've been awol from blogland recently but we had a family bereavement so I wasn't feeling chatty. Good luck with the challenge

    I hope you have lots of fun camping, we used to camp when the girls were small for the same reason as you and they absolutely loved it. It also meant because they were happy we had a good holiday too

    Hugs Jackie x
