All bagged up........

I have had so much fun putting this cute little handbag together. It is cased from Jan Tink's blog and she has so much more that I will be trying out from her blog.


The new carousel notes from the mini summer catalogue have so much use, not only for cards but off the page projects as well. I have also used chocolate chip taffeta ribbon for the handle and stitching through the carousel flap to give the handbag album more dimension. The crop a dile was very useful with getting all the holes evenly spaced around the carousel note. I also used the yummy 'Afternoon Tea' designer series paper throughout the album with chocolate chip and in colour papers that co-ordinate with this range of papers too.





Here is the inside of the album.....






Isn't she just BEAUTIFUL, those blue eyes and dimples, they get me every time she does the crawling or sweet talking thing to get her own way.




This is the centre fold of the handbag, I am yet to journal on it as I am not sure if I am going to give this as gift or keep it for myself.





This is my other darling, he has such a caring and gentle nature for everyone and loves lots of cuddles. The little title of dream big suites him to a tee as he always comes out with the most beautiful things.







Here is one of the carousel notes with both Courtney and Jacob together.....I love this moment as it usually doesn't happen very often...."boy germs" is the usual remark I receive...





And here is my darling hubby, Andrew and I.....






The altered carousel notes slide behind the pages that have been attached to the envelopes.....






Had better go and do the dishes, so until next time, hopefully tomorrow with a page layout......
