Sweet Child of Mine Paper bag mini album-GC

Never too busy to create for Generations Crafting, I say...LOL  
Even though I have been spending some much needed time with my hubby cause he works a lot, 
I decided to spend most of last Sunday to create this cute little mini, that I made using small paper bags and I cut up a cereal box for the cover and binding... 
It measures 5x7 and I used the beautiful Websters Pages to decorate it..

Here are pictures of the inside in order as you flip through the album:

I have added 4 big pull out tags for 4x6 photos and a
space for journaling on the back of all tags.

I did some more fussy cutting.. Had so much fun and these papers should 
do make it easy..

Here I inked the edges after I fussy cut the flowers and then 
layerd them onto the page.

for supplies used:

small paper bags, when flap folded measures 5x7
chipboard for the cover (cereal boxes cut to right size)

buttons: bag-o-button
