Everything is Coming up Flowers

Hi everyone! I am here to share a mini album that I had started over four years ago. I had the basic cover with no decorations on the front and the mini paperbags affixed and inside with no paper or decorations either. I was stumped as to what I wanted on the cover and how the inside should look like so it sat in my pile of unfinished craft projects. Since I am making fans for my soon to be daughter in law and son's upcoming wedding I had a lot of time in-between fans being cut out on my silhouette so I dug this album (there are many more in that pile too...eek!) out to work on.

I added an assortment of flowers to the lower corner of the album along with lace and velvet ric rac.

For the most part I used Prima Madeline 6"x6" collection to decorate with but I did use a couple of cardstock/scrapbook papers scraps that complement the collection.

I used four paperbags for the inside which gives me lots of room to add more than the six tags. Also on each cover there is a small pocket with tags too.

A close up of the tags that I punched with my We R Memory Keepers 3"x4" card punch. 

I cut out tags that where in the Madeline collection and paperclip to the outside of each pocket.

I bought the clock image online but for the life of me I can't remember where if I do I will update. I adhered the bottom half of the image to the flap, added the leaves and flower embellishments and I then cut out a small piece of cardstock, rounded the edges, folded in half and tucked behind the image.

More pull out tags using a variety of tabs...stickers, punches and a old ticket stub that my hubby tried to throw away. ;-)

Another cut out tag with clip and a charm that I had received in a swap that I dressed up with a small circle punch, flower, sequins and dew drop (that is on the other side).

The back inside pocket I added these three little tags I received in a swap. I added little oval punches to the top for a punch of color.

There you have it a completed mini album...over four years later...hehe ;-) I do plan on finishing some of these other projects that has been laying around as time permits. I hope you enjoyed having a look at this little album.
Also I would like to submit this following project for the following challenges:
