By the cute and Girly April-once upon a time!

I am hosting this months challenge over on BTC&G and I just realised my post for April 1st never posted and it has vanished?? I don't know if it's becuase my blogger changed to the new format or something but it never went up & I only realised today as I prepare my mid-month post.....

This is my first project for Aprils challenge Once upon a time......

 I bought the book in a second hand book shop for €1 and decided to alter it using graphic 45s Olde Curiousity Shoppe papers
 IN the corner of the cut-out window I have a Tim Holtz vial :) full of beads and some paper roses and prima bling
 This is the window scene of the shoppe :) I love all the quirky prints in this collection
 The little telephone charm is from a kit from and the butterfly is by Geraldine
 The pages are stained with Tim Holtz distress stain so you can still see the print then I inked all the edges and layered up pics from the graphic 45 papers and some skeleton leaves & another embroidered butterfly
Close up of my FAVE image-the flying pigs!

Thanks for visiting,

Funky baby boy album

 This album was for my friend of a friend Ruths baby Ethan-she wanted a funky modern album! I made this with Basic greys oliver papers, chips & rub ons :)
 Ribbons and fibers from the ole stash....
 I love the chipboard pieces from the collection-they are so cute, look at this lil guy!

 I think this monkey page is my FAVE :)

 The train print is perfect for lil boys....
 And thats it! Thanks for visiting me :)

Crafty queens kit club-March kit!

 I am a member of crafty queens kits club & I have to say it's AWESOME-Eve is great at putting together the kits & you get so much crafty goodness-easily enough to make 2 projects! I made this mini album for my mom for mothers day-you have to check out crafty queens site HERE
 This kit had cool acetate pages which I used along with the gorgeous My Minds Eye papers & FAB prima flowers! I used my new Bind-it-all to punch the pages and I used cotton string to bind it together as I don't have any rings just yet!
 These papers are just gorgeous and you can see the lovely crochet trim from the kit in this pic too..........
 I love this little green flower on the right hand side here....

 These papers are just FAB-I really love them!

 This pic shows the acetate pages.....
This is the binding I used :)
