Album in A Dresser?

I have the cutest project today! This was one of the gifts I sent to my daughter for her birthday, I always love to send crafts that I have made.(You know I need to unload somewhere) I found this spectacular pattern  that Jinky was selling. RIGHT HERE.   Have you seen the great patterns Jinky makes? I knew I had to have this one!

This is my finished dresser! Now let me tell you that it looks a little crooked, it wasn't when I finished. Then this cute little black cat came into the room.
Ok, that isn't Pippie but she did either attempt to sit on the dresser or something like that!
 Here is a couple extra views of what the drawers look like opened and of course they are lined and each drawer has a pearl for a handle and a little book in each.I used some papers and chipboard pieces from Fab Scraps to design this project. That pretty ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon of course!
 These are all the drawers with the little books-This is an album so the books each have a picture of my daughters friends in the inside. I left a space on the backs so she could write something about them
I used a die cut from Fab Scraps as the mirror-just had to glitter it up some! and a vellum tag as the book label on the front.and a couple pictures of my beautiful daughter.Added a little greenery made with one of my favorite dies from Cheery Lynn.

So how do you like my out of the box thinking for an album?
Thanks for your visit and I always enjoy reading your comments.

Pippie says she didn't do it, she just wanted to see what I was making for Melissa and make sure her picture was included! (It was) lol
