i have the best friends......

i've spent a lovely day with my friend jen today, crafting and chatting. 

we went to the didcot railway centre for a while. they are filming some scenes from the new sherlock holmes movie there and we went to have a look at the set. amazing is the only word that describes what they are doing. we came away with so much inspiration. unfortunately we are not allowed to post any pictures as the film isn't being released until next year.

i have been working on the cover for my december daily album today. i know that the idea behind this album is to have all the basic pages prepared before the event, i'm not sure i will achieve that, but i do plan to do as much as possible beforehand.

here is a picture of the cover:-

i started by covering a piece 5 x 7 piece of chipboard in papers from fancypants, edged with a tim holtz espresso paint dabber. i then added some inca gold to the corners to give some extra definition. the chipboard frame is a very old product from deluxe designs. again i used the espresso dabber and inca gold. i also painted the tim holtz numerals in gold and used a jenni bowlin studio bingo card for the background. finally the gold decoration is from sainsburys!!!

 julie-anne popped around last night with a very early christmas present for me

i have been searching for this die for ever, it is the last one i need to complete my collection, i now have every 2x2 die quickutz have ever produced, that's over 1000 in total!! thank you julie-anne, you are a star!!
