TWS mini album swap march 2010 – mini album I made for Izzabella

Hi Everyone

Today I wanted to share with you the mini album I made for the March TWS album swap on The Scrap Beach.

My partner for March was the lovely Izzabella who is from the UK too. We decided that we would do a Spring theme album, in the hope that spring might get here soon

As is becoming usual for me now I have filmed the mini to you to see, so here is the video

I would really love to know what you think.

I would also like to apologise that I’m not blogging as much as last year but as I’m now doing more mini albums than cards they take longer to do, but I’m hoping to try and blog more from next month

Thanks for stopping by

She did a fab job and she made mine with my favourite colour too!!! – purple!!! So here is the beautiful tag that she sent to me!!

So there you have it!!! All the amazing tags I received for the March swap, I know I’ve said it before but I will treasure each and everyone for ever – thank you so much ladies!!! I can’t wait to share the April swap’s with you!!
