Round Robin cover and a tin of beautiful things has arrived

Today I received this gorgeous altered box filled with oh my gosh so many beautiful things I swear I nearly cried this was from my swap partner Debi and this was the Secret garden swap......
Can I just say I love it all from the beautiful altered tin filled to the brim with  embellishments galore from trims, laces, flowers and the secret garden novel Debi thought of everything.
I also received this gorgeous handmade cuff I love this so much it's just to die for....I sneaked peeked a photo of this last night to my friends as I just had to show it off it's really just divine.........
So thankyou Sarah for arranging this swap it's been so much fun to make and also to receive so many gorgeous things, and thanks to the lovely Debi Huntsman for the beautiful treasures that she made me....

Well yesterday I started on the cover of my album did one take of it and wasn't happy and ripped it up in frustration, calmed down later and decided nope not going to go with that kind of album and found this other indexed book in my stash so decided to go with that.....
I've used a way old piece of K and Co for the cover love the colours in this paper so just went with the flow and found embellishments to match, I used this gorgeous trim that I just got in the box seeing as this is my BFF quotes album I wanted my album to to look beautiful and this gorgeous trim is truly that..........I also used the sweet little bunch of flowers as well.....
Will show more when I finish up the next pages in it, but for now have to go and crash the rubbish lid down the hall and wake up my teen's....
Have a beautiful day, Lou get ready to post, my tussie mussie and it's goodies are heading your way via express...
