Another Project from Craft Retreat

Good Afternoon Everyone

I hope you are having a great weekend, its so depressing how quickly they go by.  I saw my nephew yesterday which was fun, he is getting bigger every time I see him.  He goes to secondary school next September so he was telling me all about the schools he has applied to.  He was also running through his lines and dance routine for his part in the Christmas school play! 

I thought I would post another project which I did at the Rosemary Merry craft retreat I went to in November. Its a photo book which we covered with some gorgeous paper from Graphic 45 - Christmas Emporium Collection (its beautiful).  There are spaces for the photos to be added. Be warned there are lots of photos!

Front Cover

Inside first page

Inside second page (love the rosette flower)

Inside third page 

Inside fourth page (my favourite)

Inside last page (the tree was cut out and 3D)

The whole book was decorated with elements of the paper pack, all the postcards were cut out.  The edges were all distressed and inked.  It was hard to photograph this so I hope you get a sense of what it looks like!  I have given this project to my mum as she loved it so much!
Enjoy the rest of your afternoon.  I hope you are all getting organised for Christmas!
Love and Hugs
