Scrapbook Tuesday Christmas Mini Album for Tracey

Hello There!

I nearly forgot to post this today.  There I was visiting blogs and oops!  Never mind I am here now with possibly my last Scrapbook Tuesday of 2013.  Or maybe not!

This is a little album I have made for my cousin Tracey to celebrate our trip to London and Tea at The Ritz.....

I have used a VOS Papermania book for which I just used two of the pages for covers.  Covered with MME Tangerine paperstock.  The pages were made using white thick cartridge paper.

There it is....The Ritz

You probably remember this photo as I scrapbooked it a little while ago.

The Theatre at which we saw Phantom of the Opera.  Fabulous musical and a definite "Must See".  In a former life I worked at a CD plant where we pressed this for my customer who gave me a copy, but only seeing it now.

Me in Trafalgar Square enjoying the sights.  We walked back through town from the Theatre so that we could see the sights.

This is the next day and we walked down the River Thames and saw some sights.  Every time I see the bridge here on TV I am heard to say "I walked across that"!

There are more pictures (15 in total) but I will not bore you with them all as I may just do a 12x12 layout at some point!

Here are the trinkets I attached to the rings.

A pleasurable two days with my cousin and one I hope to repeat in 2014.  I have to say that I made myself a little album too whilst I was making this though the pages are slightly different and I haven't done any danglies yet either.  

I am taking this to show the girls at the Snippets Playground as it contains Snippets.  We are all busy setting things up ready for the Playground Nativity Play next Sunday!  Still not sure what part I am playing yet!

Thanks for calling by.  I just hope my cousin doesn't in case she sees this!

What a treasured gift this will be for Tracey, Sam! Again, all the attention to detail is divine! Great photo of you, too, and awesome danglies!!

Do me and Sarn get parts even tho we can't rehearse? We can be angels. Stop.Laughing. An why can't we have a camel anyways? They don't make no more mess 'n the donkey does! Now I stepped in it, dinnit I?

Hugs, Darnell
