Getting Crafty.

I was thrilled earlier this week when I came across this chipboard album in a local craft shop.PMA 110100I love browsing through all the crafty blogs out there and I've long been fascinated with these chipboard albums and the wonderful creations they turn into.  I don't ever make my own cards or anything like that but for some reason I love looking at all the products needed to do it.  Websites such as Two Peas in a Bucket and a Cherry on Top are full of wonderful crafty creations. There are some seriously talented people out there.  I'm not one of them but I'm desperate to have a go.  I just need a good tutorial to get me going and I'm sure I'll find one in blogland.

So with the help of these gorgeous Christmas papers I found on sale at the same time as the album and one or two embellishments...

...I'm hoping to transform that plain chipboard album into something like this.  I'll be more than happy with something that even in a little way resembles this!

This is my simple pleasure this week.  I missed the link up  over at Dayle's but I'm going to have a look at what everybody has been up to just the same.

TTFN,

Kathleen.
