Scrapzville Swap Buddies!

Hi everyone, hope your having a very spooky Halloween!
Todays craft club was really fun, the origami christmas tree cards proved a bit fiddly but worth the trouble. The Brenda Walton Twisted Peppermint papers are festive but you could use alot of them for other themes aswell.
Ok, here are the names of the swappers.....
Cathy - Ann H
Louise K - Alyson
Felicia - Robyn
Louise R - Clare

And the very vague theme for this month is "Flower Power!" so do what you will with that! I know everyone is excited about this, so i hope you enjoy it. The minis are to reach your partner by the 30th November, and please make them something that you are proud to give and that you would like to receive.
My email address is ftdphoenix at iolfree dot ie send me your address and i'll pass it on to your partner.
Have fun, thankyou so much for joining in,
lots of love,
Felicia. xx

Passionately Pink!!

Laura Denison is running a campaign to raise money for breast cancer research. She asked people to donate a pink themed mini album, she will then hold a silent auction on her blog www.followingthepapertrail.blogspot.com starting on Halloween.

The photos of the album had to be with her by the 29th - today. Not a problem said I, I'll have it finished by the 25th said I...... I wasn't counting on a very cross child, having a row whilst holding a large glass of ribena..and so, i have been up since 6.30 to finish the NEW album and have just sent off the photos to Laura now.
Its amazing what you can achieve when there is a good cause involved!
Have a good day xxxx
p.s. the child involved was genuinely sorry, and was restored to her lovely self !x

Samantha's mini

Hi, if you have seen the halloween mini that Samantha is sending me, then you'll understand why i'm reluctant to put this up.... i've only peeked at the front cover, but it is AMAZING!
I really like the cute little witch on the front of this though.

Technophobe!

Hi, i was planning to put up a video of my first ever paper bag album.... but i cant get the camera to co-operate with the computer!!
The USB lead is plugged in and i've done all the usual things but nothing is happening.
Hmmmm, Tim is not here..... whenever there is a technical glitch in this house its really easy to fix, you just say, "Tim!!" so i'll try to get it going but if not i'll post it tomorrow.
Anyway, thanks Tienne for the paper bags, no i'm not planning on hyperventilating alot!
Ok, i'll see what i can do with this,
F xx
p.s. The Scrapzville swap has now become international! there are a couple of people in England who are interested, so the more the merrier!

Scrapzville Album Trade!!

In a moment of madness i decided to try and set up a mini album trade....
There are loads of these things around, but as far as i know, none in Ireland ( don't quote me on that though, more like none i've heard of in Ireland!)
So, if you would like to join in, this is how you do it...
Leave me a comment with your email and or blog address, on the 30th of October i'll gather up all the names, ( obviously, i'll be far too busy trick or treating and riding my broomstick on the last day of the month!) and on the 1st of each month i'll post all the pairs of names., & email you all your swap partners addresses.
The mini albums must be no bigger then 6"x6", no smaller then 31/2" x 31/2".
They must have at least 6 pages, and i will give a theme for each month, which knowing me will be very vague. The books must be in the post by the 25th of each month, and you can send photos or a video of your book to me and then everyone can see your work on the blog!
Pheww, that was alot of information!
Anyway, i hope there are a few of you interested, looking forward to hearing from you,
Felicia xx

There are tags and pockets and spaces for journaling, its lovely, bright colours and has pearls decorating the front and back covers. I'll put up the pictures now, i hope you can see all the details. There are too many details to list!

Ashton has posted my mini, she sent it on Tuesday so we will see how efficient the postal service is! i'll try and make a video of it and if not i'll put pictures up, so watch this space!!
Also, the Scrapbeach swap list is out today. I'm swapping with Samantha in Georgia, a month ago i didn't know anyone in America!!
There was a huge delivery at the Crafty Alley Shop today, so if your looking for Adirondack ink pads, distress inks, dimensional pearls or really nice new wooden stamps then thats the place to go....... unless i get them all first!!!!!
