title page from BoBunny tag album class taken in Canada (album unfinished so far)

whilst in Canada on holiday last month I discovered we were staying just one block ( 5 minutes walk from a lovely independent scrapbook store with lovely owners who held weekly classes, I joined 2 of them. This class was to make a tag album using BoBunny's brand new Autumn Song 12 x 12 paper range, love the rich colours, they are fab!
Pre-cut chipboard album used, drew round many papers in the Autumn song range for each page cover and distressed the edges with Ranger Walnut Stain distress ink. The title 'dream', was cut out twice for each letter, once on chipboard and once on the Autumn song paper using Sizzix Bigz dies and adhered using Zip Dry scrapbook glue. Netting rosette was attached to the back of Sizzix dies flowers whose edges had been distressed and curled, using extra strong DST, then attached tot he cover with a metallic brad, will add the other pages as I finish them, I have covered all the pages of the album, they just need the embellishments added. The album wasn't finished in the class as the day I was on the class our friend who were staying with had his dog die so we had to take him to say goodybye to her, thankfully the lady running the course, emailed me the finished pages from her book so I can complete the album back home, jetlag has prevented me from scrapping since our return from holiday on 1st October but I shall get on with it very soon.
