Paper bag album

So some of you know I belong to an Ebay seller group, The Paper Hen House. This group is comprised of some of THE most talented paper crafters on the planet!! Serious serious talent!! Layouts & tear bears & all kinds of projects, including one gal who makes the MOST AMAZING paper bag albums you have ever seen!! Her name is Darla & you can find her listings HERE. Please check her out, she is fantastic, super talented & oh so sweet!!

Anyway, because she oozes so much talent --well I must have thought I could capture some of that through the computer. I decided *I* needed to try a paper bag album. That was last fall. Of course, being fall, I decided to make it a fall album. Then winter came. I was not even half done with it. So I put it aside. And took it out again a couple of months ago, DETERMINED to have it done by *this* fall. Well it is done, more or less. And considering I started it a year ago, I think it should be FABULOUS ----but it isn't, lol. But here it is!

This scarecrow from High Hopes is one of my favorites, he's Guard Duty Rudy --available in big & small! The letters are the Cuttlebug Alphabet (Harmony, maybe??) & the papers are all Recollections.

I am still tweaking the pages --I would like to sell this on Ebay but it has to be TPHH-worthy!! So while I consider it done --all the pages are sewn & glued on & they all have embellishments of some sort --I feel some of the pages needs "more". So I'm going to set it on my table & ponder a few additives.

Here is one set of pages that I will probably leave as is.....I do like how they turned out....but who knows...the more I look at them the more I might just think they also need something more!

As I finish the other pages I will share. This was a huge project & I will never ever do another album!! They are adorable but I will leave these to Darla --she is absolutely the pro!! If you want to check out all the Paper Hen House HERE. You will not find cuter paper crafts!!

Thank you so much for visiting me on this beautiful Monday!! Have a fantastic week!!

Hey Michelle - this is fantastic!! You are too hard on yourself - I LOVE IT!! That scarecrow is so cute too. I am doing a Christmas paper bag album at my local scrapbooking store in about 2 weeks - my first one too - been wanting to do one for ages - and it's nice to do something different to a card.
