Mini album

Hi there

i hope you are having a lovely Saturday, we are, after cleaning the whole house from top to bottom and doing the fortnightly food shop we hit the Swan Valley in search of some lunch and WOW what a lunch. I had heard about this restaurant its called Little River Winery, its French, has a very limited menu and only open for lunch. MMMMMmmmmm we are going to make our way thru the whole menu i think, today we started with the platter (cold cuts etc) to share and then i had the most amazing duck liver pate i have ever had in my life, far far better than the pate that Joe and I made recently and i even bought some with fresh French baguettes to bring home so thats what I'm having for dinner tonight.

Any way that has nothing to do with my post today although i will post some pictures later. For today i wanted to share a mini album i made for an 18th we went to last weekend. For an extra little present i purchased two roles of film for my Instax camera and gave them to the birthday girl along with my instax camera to use, and of course the mini album so she could pop the photos straight in. (let me say here that this was a little extra present added to a bigger present that we gave her) Anyway according to her mum the mini album and little photos were loved the best of all her presents.

sorry these are all bad photos taken very quickly before we left for the party as one namely me was finishing this at 2am the morning before. Nothing like being prepared.

here's an inside page with a pocket to put the little photo in
and another.
and here it is in its cute little wrapping
I quickly  slowly put together a card that i cased from Tracey a while ago so i thought i would make another one
All papers are October Afternoon/Cakewalks line.

argh usually i do my posts on my iPad  using Blogpress and its so quick today however i am using Blogger (on the iMac that Joe bought for me :)  :)  :) but that's another story) and i am finding it- (Blogger) so much ummm not as good as Blogpress.

well that's about it for me today, enjoy the rest of your weekend
thanks for stopping by

What a great idea Linda! I'm not at all surprised that she loved it :) Your leisurely lunch sounds wonderful...there are always hidden treasures to be found in the Swan Valley. Glad you had a nice relaxing day (after the cleaning, of course!)

Hi Linda,

Such a nice lunch you had, happy for you.

WOW, what a pretty album, how fun it must have been for her to fill up. I love the colors and of course card is a wonderful one. I made one of those too. What a special way for her to remember her 18th birthday!!
