This is just a flying visit as I am in the middle of tax return filing season and don't have much free time at all.  However, I thought I would just pop in to show you what I have been working on!  I've been using a kit that is slightly out of my comfort zone  - I mean, you are looking now at someone who only goes to the hairdressers twice a year for a perm and the thought of journalling about that really does not inspire me!  Still, there were some lovely papers in the kit and some neat elements.  But really, you need to see what I worked with, don't you?!!!

It's a kit from Nibbles Skribbles and I just love the colours in it and even though I really like the journalling tags, I didn't actually use them this time around, preferring instead to leave space for more photos in this album.  Mind you, I can see some of these being really useful as the front of birthday cards and so on, so I know I will get more use out of this kit ;)!

Since it is a kit with a hairdressing theme, it just shows how versatile it is and that you don't have to do anything about hairdressing to make full use of it! 

I managed to persuade hubbie that the current Sizzix sale was too good an opportunity to miss so wangled a scalloped rectangle album die just before Christmas.  I also managed to sneak in a reindeer die too, so it was definitely my lucky day ;).  So for its first outing, the scalloped rectangle die was used for this album and here it is:

The above photos show the front and back covers.  I added one of the kit clusters to the front cover, although I did have to chop off the splatter behind the cluster - I know I'm not the best fussy cutter in the world, but even the best would have had trouble cutting out a paint splatter!

These are some of the inside pages:

and here are some more:

You'll see I added ribbons from my stash on some of the pages, as well as on the binder clips to finish it off.  I'm actually really pleased with how it turned out and I love the album die - a real bargain at £8!!!

Oh, well, better get my nose back to the grindstone I suppose.....I;m in the middle of analysing a bank account and I can hear it calling my name loud and clear!

Happy Scrapping!
