Paper Bag Album

Finally, in the last minute, I got this Paper Bag Album ready for
my daughters 17th birthday last week =)
It's ready but not finished...
I have left some "open spaces" that she have to finish.
Like the front, I thought I should write Memories, My Friends or Sweet Moments
but as you can see, I decided to leave it blank.
I guess she figures out the right words herself ;)

I siste liten ble jeg omsider ferdig med papirpose-albumet
til datteren i huset. Hun fyllte 17 år forrige uke =)
Helt ferdig er den jo ikke, men resten får hun gjøre selv.
På coveret er det meningen at det skal stå noe med
store bokstraver. Mine venner, Minner eller hva hun selv måtte ønske..
Og inni er det selvsagt felter som må fylles inn etterhvert.

Bare spør hvis du lurer på noe! ;)


On the cover I have used a piece of one of her favorite jeans from the childhood 

I have added this flower onto the tag with 3D tape so it can be used as a locker.

I don't trust the double sided tape, *giggle* so I sew it together with some dental floss too =)

These 4 double pockets can contain 8 small Layouts.

Did you know I have a weakness for charms?
Here you can spot the little angel I made too...
