oooh, lots of alliteration in the subject! makes me heppy!  Roll Eyes sorry, there should be a dorky smiley for such purposes!

So, I live in UK, and I haven't seen my family in about a year. Ma's birthday was coming up, so I decided something special was due!

Hope you like it, I loved every second of making it, and I can see this too becoming an addiction. It took ages because i wanted every page to be just purrrfect, and distressing every itty bit bit of paper took a while. (first time distressing, did not use ink, I used diluted acrylics and a sponge) So here goes ...









It is embellished with beads, sequins, gems, glitter glue, the celtic motif on the front i cut out with a craft knife and hand sponged, foam punchouts, and of course photographs from my wedding and photos of my last few days at home in Pakistan. The paper I used was green cardstock and Papermania's Retro Floral paper. The finished album is about 2.3" x 2.3" x 0.7"

Thankyou for looking! Comments and criticism are always appreciated  Cheesy
