Kitchen Curtains, Finished Ball album, and New Stamp

I am sorry it has been a couple of weeks since my last entry, been a bit crazy here, but here I am now so let's just jump right it.

Firstly I just have to share with you my new curtains that I got for my kitchen.  I did have a bamboo blind for years but what I really wanted was cafe curtains and after a frantic clean my hubby took me out and we bought these lovely printed, ready made cafe curtains and I just love them.  I am looking forward to see how they go in summer seeing as they are not net curtains (which I thought I would want but I feel in love with these printed ones)

I have had them up for a couple of weeks now and really love them.

Ok I have been working on Grace's 2012 School Ball album lately and finally over the weekend, thanks to my scrapbooking workshop, I was able to get it finished.  I am really pleased with the results and Grace loves it too.  All that needs to be done now is some journaling and adding of some names of her school mates.  So here are just some of the pages from the album.

It was fun really having just all the pieces and just putting it all together.  Grace had chosen the papers and embellishments she wanted and we went through and she chose where all the photos were going to go.  I even created some fold out pages for some of the extra photos we wanted to include.  All that I want to do now is add an envelop at the back to put the ticket in.  It feels really great to have a project completed.

Lastly I just had some new stamps arrive this morning and just had to have a play with one of them so made a quick card this morning.  My other daughter Melissa loves owls so this is for her.
I do not have a punch for branches so I just traced and cut my own.  I added some little pink pearls for flowers buds.  I really like how this has come together.
