WOYWW and my mini album completed

Hi all and its time again to reveal our desk,crafting area or floor to the nation. Julia our lovely hostess over at Stamping Ground asks that we come and play and have the chance to visit each other and find out what we are all up to this week. So this is my desk for you all to peek at :)

You can see the makings of my album complete with matted and labelled photos and programme from bus show,had made the album when i had a crafting session (pics here) and just needed to finish the cover and add the photos which after 4 yrs was time to print out....lol. You can also see  the gorgeous atc's that i received from Twiglet, BJ and Julia. My green bin,dst and scissors(use this pair just for dst), iphone for emergency back up if internet goes again! red box containing my new stamps and to the right some old bus magazines which i have been cutting up.
L- R Julia, BJ and Twiglet
Feel free to go off and nosey at some other blogs now or if you would like to stay and see the pictures of my album that would be awfully nice of you :)
inside pages fold out and there are pockets on each page
used old bus photos, tickets and pics taken on the day
cover of bus album
Me and my hubby visited a bus show 4 years ago with our youngest son Peter,had a great time having rides on the buses,taking photos and chatting with the drivers so thought it was time to do the album and give to hubby on Fathers Day. Used card from stash, Tim Holtz 'retro grunge' papers, martha stewart punches, jigsaw pieces,old bus magazines, papermania portobello road vintage stamp set,black soot distress ink and peel off letters.
Right thats me done now,managed to visit and leave comments on all but 5 blogs last week (unable to comment or kicked me off!) but not sure will make it this week as back at work but i will do my best and i always visit peeps who have left me a comment.
Have a good day all,x

  49. Fab album you have created. Love the jigsaw pieces. Thanks so much for the ATC and the reason you are still waiting for yours is because I still haven't posted it!! Put it safely in my bag and then forgot ... will post it in the morning. If it doesn't arrive within a fortnight I will owe you another one, I promise.
    Have a great week.

  55. Gorgeous mini-album, and smashing ATCs you've received.

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog, Kay, and I'm so glad you like my zentangles and ATCs. I've always adored poppies and thought they would lend themselves well to the technique.

    Sorry to be so long responding but I've been having problems with my comments awaiting moderation not being visible - it turns out it's a Blogger/Firefox problem since the latest Firefox upgrade, so I'm temporarily using IE till they sort it out - hopefully soon!

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  56. Sorry to be so late visiting Kay but the decorating has meant that getting into my craft room has been difficult. Decorating is done now so as soon as everything is put back in its place things will be back to normal…whatever that is!

    Your mini album is coming along very nicely and I love the cover, it brought a smile to my face. The photos reminded me of all the all busses we saw when we visited the Black Country Museum is Dudley a few years back.

    Thanks for stopping by this week.

    Happy Crafting!
