Finished! Ta da!

Well it wasn't meant to take this long - a whole week in fact - but it's finished at last and I'm so pleased with it. In case you're wondering, I'm talking about my holiday album, made using Ali Edward's sketch for wwwpencillines.com. It took some doing (which is why I haven't been on here much this week) and at times I could have thrown it across the room and cried (like when I stuck the title on the back cover instead of the front by mistake) but I'm glad I stuck it out because now I have a complete, colourful memento of our first family holiday.



It feels great to have completed my album and the finished product has reminded why I got into scrapbooking in the first place. I almost lost my way earlier this week when one of my LOs wasn't published in a scrapbooking magazine as promised (although I've since been assured it will be appearing soon) and I was feeling generally down and not like scrapping at all. But I carried on and I'm feeling much better now. Good job really because I MUST start on this little list of Christmas presents I have to make before December 25!
Thanks for looking :)
