Cute Cottage and mini album

Who stoll the week!!! here we are on Wednesday already and I have been bursting at the seams to tell you all about the fantastic workshop I went to on Saturday held at Bubbly Funk Shop owned by Caroline . The class was to make a Cottage complete with concertina mini album with Di Oliver from Tando Creative Limited,   I had a great time getting inky; messy;  gossiping and crafting all day, Caroline spoiled us with Choccy biccies, lunch and cake and as much tea and coffee that we could drink.  Now I love making mini albums and couldn't wait to start, we used products from Viva Decor and Eco Crafts which were FAB.  Need these for my stash now.

How cute is this

Fab tree covered with Terra which gives texture and then was painted

One side has tree complete with swing

This is one side that opens to reveal the concertina mini album below how it is open. 

I have yet to put the finishing touches to the album ie decorate and add photos so will post again at a later date to show the album finished.  Thanks again Di and Caroline for a wonderful days crafting and for lunch and cake!!

The Mini album I made which was the post before this one;  for the Gingersnap Creations Challenge using Coffee Filters has been chosen as a Ginger Gem Whooo Hoo thanks ladies I am thrilled you liked it and thank you for all the lovely comment that have been left.
