I made this bureau from scratch my inspiration was a writing desk my Nan had when I was small loved all the drawers so decided I would make a small one to hold mini albums and little mementoes of my family, I am making 4 mini albums to go in the larger drawers that will measure 5x6 inches and the smaller drawers will hold small things that mean a lot to me and are part of my  memories that  I can pass on to family.....the papers used are graphic 45 ladies diary ...hope you like it measures 13 inches wide 8 and a half inches deep and 11 inches high..... if anyone wants full measurements and how I constructed it  please feel free to ask....
when I have made all the albums I will display them as well

This is the view with lid closed the tab is for lifting
the lid folds back

to reveal the small drawers that are 3and a half inches square

the side view I have fussy cut the clock with roses from one of pages

the inside of drawers are also decorated

I need to start blogging more didn't realise was nearly 2 months since last one ....I made these shoes as a birthday card for my daughter who is a shoe lover ....I could not afford to buy her a pair of louboutin's so I made a pair, the pics were taken before I added my sentiments, but I made the sentiment as a label, I love the way they have turned out al I used was black and red bazzil card and embossed the black card to make it look patent hope you like them
