Simply Created Album Kit

Although I still have a few finishing touches to add to my album I thought I would share my progress so far. The new Spring & Summer catalogue contains several project kits, making the album really quick & easy to put together.

I decided to put the photos from our trip to Bristol last Summer in this album - we followed part of the trail around the city for Gromit Unleashed - 80 sculptures decorated by famous people and large companies to support the Bristol Children's Hospital - we managed to find 33 over the 3 days we spent in the area.

I'm planning to add some stamped flowers to match my front cover - hopefully later this week when my order arrives as I have ordered a few more new products from the NEW Spring & Summer catalogue, along with the kits for my next class! I added some crochet trim and ruffled ribbon to the book rings, just to add some colour to the front cover.

I first found out about the trail of Gromit Unleashed through the Kath Kidston web site - this is the Gromit that they created!

We always cram in as much as possible while we are away - so I added this photo of Lucy trying to be "cool" at the back of the album - it was a really hot day perfect for a day at the beach! 

I plan to fill the pockets with a few more of the photos of Gromit that didn't make it on to an album page and the "passport" that was stamped as you followed the trail.

Great photos Angela. Love all those lovely Gromits. It must have been fun looking for them. Philip and Lucy looked like they were having fun.

Such a wonderful album and what a fun trip! My girls would love hunting for Gromit!
Several years ago there was something similar to this in Kentucky for the Derby. Different artists decorated race horses and 'hid' them throughout the city. I think it was also for charity. It was fun to see them as we traveled to visit family.
