I use my crafting as a way of unwinding all the stresses of everyday life. I hope you will enjoy sharing the journey with me!

Out Of My Comfort Zone....
I joined a swap with a difference over on the scrapbeach. The swap was in 2 parts, first of all we had to put together some kits in the theme of Spring, to decorate a TP roll album. We had to make a kit of parts for each person taking part, including: patterned paper, ribbons, flowers, beads etc.etc. these where the bagged up and sent to our lovely host Irene who then sorted them out and sent the kits to everyone.Are you following me lol? Second stage on recieving the kits from everyone is then to create a TP roll mini album, for a partner who Irene has selected for you, using only the components in the kits although we are allowed to use our own inks, paints etc. This way we can see what different albums everyone comes up with despite using the same kit of goodies! The thing is that being a Spring theme all the components were lovely bright colours which I don't usually work with as those of you that follow will know! Well here is a sneak peak at the album, which is still a work in progress... Doing something like this has really got me thinking outside the box, as you will notice on the charm I didn't have enought to fill it so I added a safety pin that was in the kit with some beads on it which I thinks looks rather good!
