Okay a bunch of pictures, sorry about that. I saw this tutorial on youtube for an album made from manila folders. So I used her basic idea to create on of my own. Now this one isnt fully finished, I have to add pictures. My three nieces, Skylar, Sophia and Jordan will be the subjects. I am putting the pictures as sepia toned. This is for my mom, so I stamped granddaughters on the front. I used lots of Tim Holtz papers and distress inks. I added my new liquid pearls, ribbons and flowers. Some K and Company die cuts. 

Above is the flap up and this is flap down. I used this paper that had lines on it so I could write about the girls. There is also a tag and pocket. The wings are from KAndrew Designs.

This is my cat George trying to butt into the picture, and eat my ribbons.

Again flap up and then down, thought these would be great for adding bigger pictures. I made another tag pocket and then an open pocket to slip stuff in.

I made this with four little tags, not sure what I will put on these yet but I am sure I will find something.

flap up and down again, and a pocket to put more stuff in.

this is the back. The black binding is leather from my husbands old wallet, thanks baby lol.
I will be posting this again after I add pictures.
