My Third Paper Bag Scrapbook

I was going to give the last scrapbook to a friend, but my daughter thought this one was better. So this is the one I'm giving away and the one with the ladies on it is in my Etsy Shop.

I used scraps and sewed them together in strips to make the cover.
This is some of my corally colored handmade paper. I love the color. It has a little bit of veining on it where I had placed a leaf for texture.
More handmade paper and pockets added.My handmade paper with Anise in it and birdie pictures.
Sheet music paper sewn onto fabric with sweet little birdies singing.
Handmade paper and a polka dot pocket.
I made this paper with little strands of yarn in it to add some color.
The final page with purple handmade paper and a brownish pocket and trim.
The back cover is more scraps stitched together.
I think this was a fun way to use up my scraps!
Okay, I have one more set of bags distressed for another aged looking scrapbook and then I have to get started on the bags that my mom and sister ordered from me, the crocheted blanket that has been ordered and more swaps. I suppose I really need to get a move on it! Right Mom?!?!?! I'm having so much fun doing these little scrapbooks though that I don't want to quit! The kids are making some right now. They are having fun picking out paper from Mom's pretty paper stash. I hate giving up my paper, I'm a hoarder when it comes to paper!

This is so great. I have a special love for minibooks. My 4yr old saw this and said "I want an egg book". We have robins who have had 2 or 3 netfulls this year. Lisa

Oooo I love that scrapbook! Very cute and it almost makes me want to make my own paper too... but I am a bit challenged by messy projects right now cuz I don't want to clean up afterwards. Maybe while my husband is out of town so he can't see it.... :)
