Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Well I have finished the Album for my DIL and she loved it.

The theme I chose was Bees as she loves anything with Bees on.

Sorry this is a tad bit picture heavy, really it needs a video, but I am not ofay with how to do that.

Papers used were Paper Boutique Bumbblebee's Dance and Tattered Lace card stock. 

Forgot to photograph the  photo mounts in the top of each page which you can just see at the top of the Album in some of the photos.

Well I hope you didn't get too bored with all the photos.

I made this Album from scratch from a tutorial on You Tube  by Rosa Kelly she does some amazing tutorials and explains everything perfectly.

Blooming blogger has a mind of it's own and I can't get the text under the photos in the centre.

Thank you so much if you stayed to the end and for your precious time.

I really apreciate every wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
