A Different Paper Bag Scrapbook

This is a another paper bag scrapbook that I am sending to a friend.
The front cover is some fabric that I bought a year or so ago.
I machine stitched around the ladies and added a little flower to the blonde's hair.
This is some handmade paper I purchased and then added some bird nest pics and buttons.

This is some of my own handmade paper. I love the black paper I made!
fabric and more of my handmade paper
I added skeleton leaves to this page.
mulberry paper
My handmade paper with anise added. It smells yummy!
Fabric and my handmade paper and a cute little bluebird.
The back is more of the fabric and I machine stitched around the lady.
Three tags to go with the book.
I love this fabric. I bought it a year or so ago and never knew what to do with it. I just had to buy it because it was pretty. So now I found a good use for it. I knew I would! I love using handmade paper! I love making paper! It's fun and I can be creative with what I want to add to it. I need to make some more.........after I clean the kitchen good. Darn it, I hate cleaning, I'd much rather just craft!!

The book is absolutely breathtaking. How did you learn to make paper? When do you do all your crafting? You are one amazing lady.
