June is over and it has been a busy month.
Last weekend we were in Dublin to see Westlife's farewell concert. It was excellent, the atmosphere was brilliant but boy was it cold. It felt more like November than June. It was my first time in Croke Park and I was very impressed. We did a bit of sightseeing as well and I am delighted to say that after all these years I finally visited the Book of Kells and Trinity College.
My little girl celebrated her 7th birthday yesterday so that was cake and presents!
Now back to crafting. June's Crafting Ireland/Scrapzville Swap had a vintage theme and my swap partner was Aideen. We completed our minis in good time and they have been swapped so here are the pictures of mine.
I am working on a mini to send to Aideen as a raffle prize. She is organising a two part raffle of crafty goodies and once off makes to help raise money for her cousin in England who needs surgery. All details of the raffle are on her blog.
Bye for now. Ann.

Last months swap had the theme of summer colours and my swap partner was Kristine from America. I used kraft card and made my own album from it. I like using A4 card as it has lots of possibilities for pages and pockets. Here are some photos of Kristines album.
Off now to make my Father's Day card.

Thats it for now - hope you are inspired to try this one. It is a series on You Tube.
Have a good week.
Thats it for this post. I have pictures of my paper bag mini designed by Kathyorta but I will put those up separately or otherwise trying to upload them to blogger in the correct order will totally frustrate me.

I have become a huge fan of Kathyorta (you tube name). What she does with paper is absolutely amazing. Her mini albums have so much interaction, there is tons of space for photos and for journalling and boy, does she use up paper. She is helping me to get through some of my stash but apart from a very large bonfire, I don't think I will ever reach the end of it because I continue to add to it. I will share some of her projects that I have done later.
This is a mini album that I made for my husbands niece who celebrated her 18th birthday in April.
I used 6 X 9 envelopes and lots of girly papers which I dont normally use. It was fun to do and she loved it which was good.
It was also one of the first mini albums that I filled with photos as I went along. I was very happy with it.
This is another mini I made using the Graphic 45 Curtain Call papers which I fell totally in love with. I particularly like the fact that the tag on the front advertising hot chocolate included my husbands name. What a coincidence.
I will be back later in the week with some more projects. Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
