If I knew- memorial- tribute album

Wow what a week for the fairy- in between calving cows and unmentionable farm jobbies I have been inspired to make a memorial album.
Its been a little while since I've made one for ebay- usually these are private commissions.
I thought I'de share the love!

back of album

Here is the 8x8 album I’ve made for Tanja and her daughter themed Provence.
When I think of that region in France , i think of  lavender and the green, flowers, springtime, fresh and classical yet modern and funky. 
There is a touch of silver foiled paper throughout which gives this album a really classy feel- I’m not sure that I’ve photographed it that well but you can see slivers of the silver throughout.
I’ve added lots of extra flaps as well as generous journaling areas. A sprinkle of silver metal daisy embellishments and lots of ribbons – to which photos can be slipped underneath.
LOADS of stamping with lots of images throughout.
I wanted a real Paris – France feel to this album so I’ve added a few French words as well as some postage mark shabby chic stamped images and the odd eiffel tower!
There are 12 pages plus fold out pages 8x8 paper bags.
I hope you like it Tanja- Its softer and prettier in real life than my photos :-)

sneak peek- pre ebay listings steam punk owls and shabby chic

OK so here's the deal!
I cant help but create- BUT I'm worried about putting too much in my ebay shop that it becomes a little too hard to choose.
Not to mention the spate of copy cat paper bag people who have been copying my themes!

SO to curb myself from going crazy and flooding the market- thought I'd share here first
I'm only allowing myself to list a new one as one sells- what do you think good idea??

So we have
a lunch bag album-

TIME with stamping and distressing galore- this one is more of an art piece than a straight scrapbooks, its taken a bout a week to complete- believe it or not!!

then 6x6 paper bag album- Unlock your dreams with a steam punk owls. I have a bit of an owl fetish thing going on at the moment

and finally Beautiful moment 6x6 paper bag album- shabby chic paris floral vintage creation. I know! I KNOW more shabby chic but my shabby heart will not be denied!LOL
