City Crafter - Photo Booth

Good morning ...

I'm here to share my project for this weeks' challenge at City Crafter ... hosted for us by our sweet Kirsty ... The challenge she has set for us is to create a project with at least ONE PHOTO on it ... This is the inspiration photo


I thought I'd make a little album for my Aunt ... with some of the photos from her visit here in March ... I didn't want to make it too fancy inside ... I needed it to close neatly so she could just pop it in her bag

This is the outside when it is closed


I painted a little metal frame and glued it on top of this pretty embellishment I had in my box of trinkets
The gorgeous trim is actually sewn onto elastic and came from my lovely friend Jacira ... it was just perfect to hold the album closed 


The inside 



She was thrilled when I gave it to her 

Now it's over to you ... are you up for the challenge? 
We have the talented Sylvia Nelson at our Guest Designer this week ... but you too could be joining us one week as Guest Designer ... That's the prize on offer ..
Hop over to the blog for full details and to be inspired by the rest of the team ... 

Thank you for stopping by ...

Keep safe

~ Ros ~
