Right well this weekend I am afraid I haven't done much blogging as I have been busy playing with the gorgeous acrylic album from Papermania that is coming out 1st September (when I shall be queuing to buy a few!!).
For a while now I have been trying to do a scrapbook page (12x12) to go into a frame for my brother but I had too many pictures and couldn't get any inspiration for it. Then when I received this album to try out I realised it was perfect for my brother's birthday present and I am happy with the results.
The pictures are from his medal giving parade in Windor earlier this year after he got back from Afghanistan. You may notice a few pics with Prince Harry who got his medal the same day and was stood not far from my brother. Princess Anne gave out the medals so there are a couple of pics with her too. On one of the pics it looks like my brother is yawning at Princess Anne but he was just talking to her and it was just unfortunate timing of the picture being taken!!
I really love the acrylic album; the size is perfect, the number of "pages" is great and some extra pages could be added by drawing round the arcylic and cutting out extra pages from cardboard, chipboard or paper etc. I love the scalloped edges and it is nice thick acrylic rather than some of the flimsy ones you can get. I shall have to buy some when they come out and make some more albums for christmas presents.
I hope to play with some of my other goodies in the week and let you know what they are like too! I have to say I absolutely love these acrylic albums!
Thanks for looking! xx
