A piece in progress

In August I was the lucky winner of the amazing Tara Orr 's giveaway. I won the most amazing amount of stash, amongst it this little Bo Bunny album
Not being American I felt I wanted to alter it so I made it into a little wedding album with photo's from my son's wedding. I had great fun creating the backgrounds with paint, mists, inks, stencils and stamps. I am not really a great scrapbooker but I did enjoy embellishing the pages, here are some of them:

What a stunningly gorgeous keepsake. Beautifully altered and embellished. I bet you and your daughter-in-law will be fighting over who keeps it. XX

What a gorgeous project you have made of this Astrid. I love the way you have embellished it and there are some beautiful photos of your son and his new wife. I know I would find it very difficult to part with such a lovely album.

Hola Astrid: disculpa que no te escriba en inglés, pero sólo puedo hablar algo. Me encanta tu blog, es muy romántico, pero estas fotos son preciosas! Me gusta mucho el traje de novia, y el novio está muy chic con su traje típico de higlander.
Saludos desde España

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
