June Scrapzville Swap

Hallo ladies.
June is over and it has been a busy month. 
Last weekend we were in Dublin to see Westlife's farewell concert.  It was excellent, the atmosphere was brilliant but boy was it cold.  It felt more like November than June.  It was my first time in Croke Park and I was very impressed.  We did a bit of sightseeing as well and I am delighted to say that after all these years I finally visited the Book of Kells and Trinity College. 
My little girl celebrated her 7th birthday yesterday so that was cake and presents!

Now back to crafting.  June's Crafting Ireland/Scrapzville Swap had a vintage theme and my swap partner was Aideen.  We completed our minis in good time and they have been swapped so here are the pictures of mine. 

It was a lovely theme to work with.  I made envelopes with kraft card and lots of interactive bits.  As usual the mini got too bulky and my bind-it-all wires wouldn't do so I had to use ribbon.  Aideens mini is absolutely fabulous and it was such a coincidence but we both used the same paper!
I am working on a mini to send to Aideen as a raffle prize.  She is organising a two part raffle of crafty goodies and once off makes to help raise money for her cousin in England who needs surgery.  All details of the raffle are on her blog.

Bye for now. Ann.
