Finshed my Album!

Well I finished my album in enough time for my show! To bad the show was such a bust! Oh well it was a learning experience! I have to post all the photo's here as I can post them all in my Etsy listing which sucks!

This was really fun to make and I think it came together well! I hope you all like it also!

This what the cover looks like, which to me was the most time consuming but it came out cute! It is made from a pink cloth that has been hand stitched around the edges with a silver thread. Then I stamped the cute little girl outfit on two layers of card stock and hand water colored it. I cut out the words on my cricut. I think it looks pretty good!

The album is made from white paper bags, which I think works well. Using the paper bags gives you the opportunity to store other pictures or mementos in some of the pages! Above is what the first page of the album looks like. It has an embossed swirl background and it has been accent with lots of girly embellishments!

The album is a little bigger than other paper bag albums that I have seen, this one measures 6x6" and generally the area for you to place your photos or journaling are 4.5"

The album focuses on a year in the life of your little girl. I did pages reflecting the major events and holidays in a year! The above pages are for that special Birthday!

The above page is for Bunny day with it's bright fun colors and all of springs little friends!

Above pages reflect my favorite Holiday of the year!! I love Halloween, lol maybe because I missed being born on that day by hours! Plus I love the idea that you can be anything that you want to be on that day!

What year wouldn't be complete with out some cheery Christmas pages!?!? I didn't totally stay with the traditional I find the traditional colors get boring after awhile! Plus I loved the ornament paper I have!

The last page of the album is to honor daddy's little girl! Love all the pastel colors on this page! Hheheh I would love to keep this one, but no little girls here!! All boys and no plans for any more!!
