Finishing An Album

Can you believe I have finally made it to the last day?
I am so glad I was able to share my process of making this album.
Here is the cover of my album, boy isn't it a doozie?  There is a little of everything on there.
Can you see the embossed flowers? I really like all the charms hanging from the spine.
This is the right side of the book, remember I added this little booklet for extra space to put memorabilia.
I added a few embellishments but still might add a few other items like tabs.
Here is an open view of the album, love the two ring banded areas. I pulled the charms from the front spine.
Each page has a pocket, I haven't made the tags to slide in each pocket yet. I am going to make some before I give this album away.
 I had a mini vellum envelope and tag that was included in my kit I purchased from Kathy at Paper Phenomenon.I had to add even more bling with the gems down the pocket and the embossed flower.
  One last picture to share of the yummy paper and ribbon.
This was so fun to make and I am excited to have tried something new to me. Hope you enjoyed and maybe got a little inspiration.
Thanks for stopping, hope you come back soon.
