Mini Madness Monday IIIII

This is the last of the backlog of mini albums I have to share with you.  You can check out the others here and here and here and here.  Ironically this is the first one I made and the last to share. I wasn't happy with it or the other circumstances around it (doesn't life get in the way sometimes? tch!) so it got put at the back of the cupboard and that is where it lived until my tidy up.  I still don't love it but that's OK.

For the carcass of the album I used a brochure from the hotel we had a posh afternoon tea at.  I love the idea of using a brochure as a mini and want to try this again some time. 

The day was wet and dreary but we set off across the county to a lovely hotel for an afternoon tea.  I added paint to some parts of the brochure but left other bits untouched.

The hotel was amazing and wanted to add photos of all the details...

We went to 'celebrate' the anniversary of me being ill for 12 years.  Usually the anniversary is a tough time and I get a little depressed as another year passes and I still show no improvement.  I decided that marking the occasion would give me something to look forward to rather than to get depressed about.

I used teapot buttons from my stash

The food was a m a z i n g!

I used ribbon and seam binding for the closure.  Love seam binding... must use it more often!

So there it is, it wasn't love at first sight but they are memories recorded and that has to be a good thing!

Thanks for stopping by


  1. Loving the album. I'd never think to use a brochure.

  2. I love those little teapot buttons. Brilliant idea to put them in your brochure mini album which is lo another fab idea. Sorry to hear that you have been unwell for such a very long time. That must be a hard thing to live with. Hugs Mrs A.
