It's RUSH Day


Well it's RUSH time for the  Bloggerette Sorority and this is what I have created for it, I've altered a prima canvas album well the cover to hold all my swap photo's that I do this year....
It's been fun creating something a little special for the blogging party, and yes I've got a photo with me and the project not the best got my nails done yesterday and there abit longer than I'm used too but it's a self portrait so it will have to do.......
So without further ado here is Moi

And then here is a close up of my album as well.....
Thanks for dropping by my blog sister's......



Okay I turned a year old yesterday and with my man being away he still was able to surprise me from a distance giving the kids money before hand to buy me a present with, now my ipad which is going to be my belated present as hubby wants to actually buy if for me and present it himself just have to wait until he comes home from his army course in just under two weeks time.... But this is what they got me, my hubby brought me two BBC TV series that I had had on my want list.....

The Knitwit Knitter said...

Hello Sister!!! Looks like you put a lot of work in your rush project! Nice job!!

mya said...

I must have been hiding somewhere when everyone was learning how to use computer graphics, and how to be so creative on the computer.
Your album picture looks like something a person would buy.
I am still learning just how to put a post together and add a picture or a youtube selection.
Hope to talk with you again.
