Custom Made paper bag album CHERISH- Sister

This custom made album is for a special family. I wanted to celebrate the vibrancy and magic of a life cut short. As i was making it i kept getting the feeling that Lara wanted this to be a celebration of her life and love of her family. With treasured times spent together.
I have made loads of hidden pockets where i thought it may be nice for everyone to write messages to Lara or even add photos.

I've used a bling bazzill pink cardstock that glimmers like pearl- along with a gloss varnished glitter butterfly paper. I have distressed all the writing for a vintage look and glossy accented over the top to make it shine. The butterfly charm on the side is solid metal.

Page 1 has an extra flap with room for notes or a smaller photo. The large photo area is also a hidden pocket. I have embossed the white bling card at the top for extra texture. Opposite is a pocket to add momentos and more notes/photos

View of under the flaps and the tags with the pocket

where you see a ribbon and charm i have attached them so you can slip larger photos underneath. Theres an extra flap here too!!

Sneak peek under the flap- note all the handstamping

I couldnt help but add ANOTHER pocket- loads of space for writing and small photos too
