Fairie Dust March & April Page

Hi Lovelies,

Today I'm sharing with you the next addition to our Fairie Dust Album of the Year! If you've seen our  previous posts on this Album, you would know it features the wonderful Graphic 45 Fairie Dust range which is full of beautiful fairies, delicate flowers and many magical patterns, which you will get to see more of below!

Each page of this album has been uniquely designed by the wonderful Helen and there is a stunning new design each month.

March's page design has a gorgeous halo of fussy-cut fairies surrounding your chosen photo in the centre of the page. There is also plenty of space at the bottom of the page to journal some precious memories.

This silver glitter paper is the perfect accompaniment for this Fairie Dust collection, adding just the right amount of sparkle to the page. Helen has also used Giltzin' Glamour to add a small amount of shimmer to the fairies.

Adding various little layers and features to your album makes it really standout. For this Fairie album Helen has used sparkly fine string to tuck between layers, Crackle Accents and Giltzin' Glamour to the wings of the fairies.

For April's page, Helen has designed a beautiful waterfall feature which is perfect for storing multiple photos on the one page, and it's super fun to interact with!

Helen has hand-dyed a few different sized flowers and seam binding to arrange this lovely cluster. This technique is a perfect way to use up any left over flowers you have lying around, whilst ensuring they match your project! Helen then punched a few leaves from the background paper to finish off the cluster.

I hope you're enjoying our posts from this years Album of the Year! If you've missed out on this years series of classes, we also run various album classes throughout the year so make sure you stay up to date on the blog to catch our next class!

New South Wales Adventure - Armidale

We today we ventured about Armidale on foot. We started at the markets having a look see at what they had at the farmers market. A few marketers so not much to see today really.

Off we walked around town to see the historical sights. Lots of old buildings from the early days.
 In Armidale 100 years ago you had a choice of 21 Hotels!! Today there are 9. Sorry beer lovers.

 These guys had a 4 displays of miniature figurines- really cool

 Lots of churches within cooee of each other ; Catholic, C of E, Pressy, and Baptist. Lovely old buildings to be admired.

This Celtic cross was erected to commemorate the first Christian service held here in 1845.

A walk through Central Park we came across some structures to commemorate efforts of soldiers in wars.

Her is our van setup at the Showgrounds. A good walk to the amenities keeping us fit!!

Day 2 - Tin Can Bay

First an explanation - as we travel around we will be sharing our travels on our blog.  A number of our family are not on facebook, so this is our way of keeping them in touch.  Not totally craft related, but you never know when some craft may show up :-).

Another Day in Paradise

We were off to a bit of a late start this morning.  Slept in until 8am.  Life is hard :-).

We decided to take a stroll down the Kath Kelly path.  We were told it was about a 30 minute walk and there was a little coffee shop at the end of the road where we could refresh before wandering back.

When we set off the first thing we noticed was that someone had pulled the plug on the ocean.  The tide goes out a long way here.

The path winds along the shoreline and there are lots of signs showing the different bird life and trees.  There are also a number of different pieces of exercise equipment.  It is really a lovely walk.

Now okay we did amble in our walking but we were a bit shocked to find that we took nearly 2…

Day 3 - Tin Can Bay

Evening Lovelies,

This morning we set the alarm for 6.30am so that we could go down and feed the dolphins at Barnacles.  It was a little chilly this morning with the temperature at 3 degrees, but the wind was a pretty gusty so it seemed cooler.  My family must love me that they got out of their warm beds at that time to go and paddle in the water.

We did think that there would not be so many people there due to it being a week day, but we were wrong.

We only saw one dolphin this morning, his name is Mystique.  He was the alpha of the pod and is about 28 years old.  He was very gentle and a little battered as you would expect from an animal of his age.  Andrew, Rob and I all took a turn at giving him a little treat.

Back to the van park for a cuppa and then Gramps gave Rob a lesson on how to put the annex up on the van.

 It did not seem too hard, and hopefully Robbie will remember how to put it up next time we need it.  They were thankful for Andrew's height to help when we had t…
