1:35 AM, no sleep again tonight and so its another late night crafting session for me. I did say I might be back later. Its just as well really, I think I will be busy this week sleeping my days away! Cameron is back at school which means Ava will get her uninterrupted naps again and I can nap with her and try to get myself well.

I have been wanting to do a bit more scrapbooking for a while but wasn't sure how or what I wanted to achieve. Its funny how ideas will just pop into your head when you least expect them. I have a stack of envelopes that no longer have their cards. I was thinking about how I could use them and then the idea came to me....An envelope scrapbook! 

I thought using the envelopes would allow me to create little pockets with a nifty snip or two. I have put inserts in to each one, marked with a page divider-is that what they are called? 

Now, I'm not sure how this will all look in the cold light of day but right now, I a pretty pleased with my efforts. If you look closely in one of the following pictures you will see the absolute carnage that will greet me in the morning...I am a heck of a messy crafter! 

Should have rotated this...

and this.

This too!

Eurgh, if Cameron were not in cute in this picture I would have accidentally lost it.
I was very overweight back then!

Not sure how I missed this, I was on your blog on Sunday I'm sure but never saw this post!! How annoying.

This is SUCH a clever idea and a great use of envelopes that you never seem to use (long one's for me).
