Mandy's Album


Hello There Peeps

Whilst I was rootling around my photos, and backing them up on the external drive, I realised that I have not shared these photos with you.  They are the album I made for my Buddy Mandy for Christmas.  I could not share them before as I know Mandy occasionally visits my Blog.

Front Cover.....


Spine....
Closure.....
Now you may want to put your sunglasses on!.....

Mandy is very much a pink and bright colours kinda gal.  When I made this I was thinking of a particular photo she has of herself and some childhood friends as well as some others.  

I used a mixture of Sizzix dies, Memory Box dies, TH stamps, Martha Stewart punches as well as lots of Snippets.
The paper pack I won at a retreat some time ago and was made by Dovecraft.  Not my usual colour pallet but it was rather fun to make this album again. You may remember I used it HERE.  It is amazing how different it looks by using different papers.

I really did have fun playing with the papers and ribbons, pulling out my bright and colourful ribbons.  I love these paper clips that I used throughout.....Ikea!
I can also tell you that Mandy loved it.   Phew!!

I shall be taking this over to the Snippets Playground as it contains plentiful Snippets.  I am also going to join in Simon Says Stamp as there is a heart on the front cover as well as Love on the inside.

I hope to be able to get around more of you this week, but Mr Chestin Fection is taking his time to go!

Wow, what a fabulous creation and it is really nice to see bright and bold colours.
I also like this for the large flowers, I thought I was the only one who had any of this size flowers left from years ago.

What a riot of colour - love the bold contrasts, and the dramatic black - it all works so well with the large bold floral images. Wow!

Do hope you'll send Mr Chestin Fection packing soon!

WOW Sam - that woke me up here! What a stunner, gorgeous work as always and I adore the psycho colours :) Never could spell the big word! No wonder Mandy loved it.

I read somewhere in the last few days that BIG flowers are going to be very 'in' for card making and scrapbboking - you got ahead of the game :))

Hugs, Di xx

Hi Hettie, thanks for the visit this afternoon. We're fine, aside from DH having a cold, and bracing for whatever nature may throw at our area the next couple of days. Wow, this really was bright & fun. Loved all the hot colors and the decorations you used for embellishments. I can tell your friend is a very fun loving person, and I can indeed, imagine how thrilled she was to have this handmade especially just for her, and to her tastes. Well done! TFS & Hugs
