Mini Trunk Finished! :)

After having a no-go area in my "was-a-dining-room-now-a-craft-room" room (because the kittens were so hyperactive!), I finally managed to finish my mini--trunk and album today. To be quite honest, at the moment I'm limited to the amount of crafting I'm able to do because of the pain I suffer (rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis), and if I get a chance to play with paper every other day I consider myself very lucky :) Anyway... enough of the griping - things could be a lot worse and I really do appreciate how lucky I am.
Right... so onto the mini trunk and the gin--induced purple mini-album. Once again the mini is a gatefold  album (when aren't they these days for me? *lol*) with loads of space for fullsize 6"x4" photographs. Of course, there is also glittery-ness and OTT on the decoration (for me anyway) that you can definitely blame on the gin haze *lol*
Get ready for quite a few photographs... the mini album is about 3.5" thick with loads of pages and space, and sits vertical in the trunk.
Mini trunk next to the inspiration 'Daddy Trunk" (also made by me). The mini version is made from scraps and leftovers only.
The cover first, then the pages flipped over one by one... the back of the cover is just one piece of chipboard covered in the same paper as the front covers:



 Well, that's it for now folks... the kittens are climbing my legs, so time for me to leave the room and let them settle for the evening. Hpe you've all had a brilliant week so far. Remember... Friday tomorrow, then the WEEKEND!!! Yay!

This is beautiful!!! You might love my scrap pages, but I couldn't create something like this.

Love Roz

No, I couldn't create something like this either - the level of detail is truly amazing. You must work fast when you are able to work?

Gorgeous work - of course it would be, being purple, but what a lot of time and effort has gone into making that mini-book. Or Medium book more like! Well done you....

Wow, what a lot of work has gone into this fabulous album - even if it was gin-induced - and the trunk is the perfect place to keep it. Have a great weekend. Elizabeth x #83
