Summer's Baby Paperbag Album

"Summer's Baby Album"
Good Morning hope your all well and not blown away here in the uk.
This morning i would like to showcase a creation ive been working on for my best friend's daughter.Who had a baby girl earlier this year .I am making this album to pop in with summer's very first christmas Present.
The Album is made out of Brown paperbags /Lunch bags large.I have pressed and sewn down the side for extra protection ,Used my cropodile to make holes across the top,so i can thread the ribbon's through.This Album is going to be opened up from the bottom ribbons along the top for a change.The album once pressed measures 8x8.

I have stuck various baby ribbons along the top of the front page .Altogether there's 12 Pages including front back page ,plus 3 pockets inside .
The designer paper on the front is from Scrapbook village now known as "Simply Crafts"
If im not wrong think it was by Doodlebug.All card is from Stampin up.I have used the stampin up top note to stamp my Tilda image onto.This has been coloured in copics.I choose the image as thought ampt for the front of the album wee baby being hatched /born.Thats what i love about magnolia stamps they are so versitile.
I have added Roses from Wild Orchard Crafts
,along with the white lace.The pink lace is from my craft stash.The pearls are Kaiser craft.
I also punched the pink ferns using the Mcugils punch.
The various Ribbons are from various palces and my crafty stash left over from the last baby album i created.
Ihave added below some more close up photos of the front cover.

The card on the front cover opens up to reveal the details of
Summer's Birth,Date,Weight & Time.
I am entering this creation into the following challenges:
The New Magnolia-licious Challenge:Colour combo Pink &Yellow.
Dezinaworld:Mother & Baby..Hope this counts as it's for the mother ,baby is her daughter

I hope you like my creation,.
If you happen to pop by please leave a message and say hi.
I will get round to visiting you.Sorry i couldnt show you all the album,her mum has seen the cover nothing else.Once she receives it i will upload and link back to this post.
Have great weekend,please dont forget about my candy at the top of my blog.Fab giverway until Dec12th.

Oh my goodness! What a lot of work you have gone to with this beautiful album!!
Love that you have made a card on the front for her beautiful name - date of birth etc.
Your ribbons are fantastic and so different being on the top and opening that way.
You picked a real winner with this Tilda coming out of the egg for a new baby!!
