DT Creation for Crafting with Dragonflies # 10 : Create a Mini Album

Hi everyone,hope you had a wonderful weekend and a great start to the week, half way through already again......
Over at Crafting with Dragonflies we are making Mini Albums, well I realise this might frighten some of you, but you do have 2 weeks to create one and we did give you a heads up last time that this was can make a little one folded mini album out of one 12 x 12 scrap book page or go all out like I did...I figured I might as well make a paper bag album and go overboard and this will be a Christmas gift for a special friend I have in mind...Hope you like it...I had fun creating it...
I bought a pre folded, stitched paperbag album with 5 holes, 3 paper bags were used for this album, which gives me 8 pages to use as, not counting front and back...
I don't really have a link for you as I made this one up as I went along, it's just stuff I have picked up along the way, not really a copy of anyone's.

One of our sponsors Eureka, were very generous and gave us some extra images when they heard we were making mini albums.....thanks so much, really loved these... I used 4 different images to complete this album.
A big Thankyou to Di's Digis that has very generously offered our second winner a fantastic prize...

I always use promarkers for my colouring, and the papers, ribbons etc. are all from my stash....
for the dangle at the top I used an old necklace of mine and some charms...the butterfly is a die from Quickutz, love it and I use it often..., the butterfly is a MS punch and mini dragonflies is a punch from no brand name, cheapy I bought the other apologies for using lots of bling and glitter...

 This is the first page as you open it, with a little pocket on the left and the image on the right i made into a little pocket to slip a tag or photo under
 Next page, and this time the pocket is the the right, I used the dragonfly image and some dies to frame it.
 Next page I use the image to make another pocket again, coloured with promarkers and lots of glitz
 Last page, great area for lots of photos, and another pocket
This is the back of the book and again I finished it off with that gorgeous butterfly die...and a MS heart border punch.

I went over board with the tags, 6 large tags that fit into the bag pockets and then lots of little ones 
Hope you like it, I enjoyed making it, make sure you hop on over to the other Design Team Members to you can check out their awesome mini albums, now go and have some fun....
Blessings Hilde
