I made this little album for one of the friends we went away with recently. It was her birthday at the weekend. We went away to celebrate two other birthdays and I haven't made either of them an album, mini or not. Luckily, as none of them read this blog, it's unlikely to cause them to clamour for ownership of one my erm, works.It has all the usual suspects for a mini album, some obvious but hidden tags for comments pertaining to some funny or compromising situations and a smattering of something to give it some cohesion. In this case, that's all the papers, by DO Crafts, their Birdsong collection under the Papermania banner. Very nice too. See, we went to Tenerife, which is one of the Canary Islands. Or more correctly, Islas Canarias. I know the papers don't actually show canaries, but hey, they'll do won't they? Hear me chunter if sweet friend recipient rings me to say that they're parrots! 'Artisitc' license please?
You can see clearly in my lop sided photography that I've used the Cropadile to punch the holes instead of a BiA. It's a tedious job. Paige knows this: you have to clean the bloody hole each time to see the next location. If you have a Cropadile you know what I mean. If you don't have one, pardon my language. This technique also means that the pages don't turn quite as easily as they would; but never mind, it'll make them handle it more gently, thinking it's not as sturdy as it really is!
Thing is, I'm ready for my next holiday now. Long weekends in the sun are the business, huh!
