A mini album!

Hello all, and I hope that you've had a good end to the week - and have a lovely weekend planned! Big apologies from me as this should have gone on this morning but I forgot to schedule it last night and I've been at work (I'm blaming toothache/antibiotics/hot flushes/school holidays - delete as appropriate!).

Anyway, the CraftyCatz challenge blog is having a couple of weeks summer break to give the DT chance to recharge the batteries!

But it is time for a new challenge over at Polkadoodles - and this week the challenge is 'In the garden'!  I was in the garden yesterday trying to get the jungle areas under control and didn't realise until this morning that I'd provided a tasty snack to lots of little bugs - so have now got lots of little itchy areas lol!

The DT at Polkadoodles have been using some of the fantastic download bundles that are available at Polkadoodles - and for my creation I used the fabulous 'Hootie Trees' download bundle, with some gorgeous papers, trees, etc.!  And I decided to make a little mini-album -

Now these are cute, quick to make mini albums made with one sheet of 12" x 12" paper - with lots of little folds for adding tags, etc. 

If you're not sure how to make these do let me know and I'll sort a little 'tutorial' for it - I'll be honest and say that I got the idea from a tutorial I saw a long time ago and can't for the life of me remember where! But I'm sure they've appeared on numerous websites and blogs! 
But do pop over to the Polkadoodles challenge blog and have a look at the fantastic DT ideas - and then join us with your garden ideas! 
Back soon,
