Mini green purple fabric album

The album is originally a cardboard album with tabs, and I completely covered it with a series of green color fabrics. I glued the fabric to the cardboards and my mom help me sew the sides with purple threads. I made the mannequin a while back at Donna downey class, and of course she uses all Prima products.
Look at the pretty purple skirt with the lace... niiiiice. She signed for me tooo.

I add 2 pages of cutouts Hambly screen prints in matching purple color to a 6 pages of fabric covered cardboards.
The album still about my family, with our fun photos collection. And as you can see my friend Isur made that nice chipboard word, which I added purple glue glitter on top. I fell in love with the chipboard words from Isur. Its really nice, especially since it comes in no color, so I can customize it to any colors I desire.
The purple Hambly screen prints and a "handmade" glass pin by Melody Ross.
With 7 Gypsy quotes sticker, I can be as romantic as a poet.
Again the lovely chipboard word, comes in different sizes, makes it fun and not boring.
Aaaaaaand ... the amazing swap by Collette! I Love, Love and LOVE.
Green flowers by Sassafras.
I add purple lace ribbon.
Most of the photos were printed in 3x4cm in size to fit the 3x8 inches album.

Again the amazing zettilogy frame creation by Colette. Your ideas were amaazing darling!! I filled the frame with a naked boy jumping!!! hahahahahaaha ....my son love to take jumping pictures and this time apparently while naked! O..ooo
I stamp some pages too. The charm is from Colettes' charm collection, its wrapped around scraps floss.

And ..... the fabric tag is put there to cover somethin..........
A front frontal naked boooy again!!!! hahahahaah censored!

This box is by the brand of Creative Imagination. It came out plain white. I cover the whole outside box with prima canvas writting and sprayed it with maya mist-by maya road in latte metallic mist. Inside the box, I stamp all the edges.

Inside consists of 12 mini chipboard albums. I put black graft tape on the side and stamped it with white ink.
I put many embellishments on top of 9 square glass pieces. Including photo, frames, pebble stickers, fabric stickers, charms, etc.


As you can see (or probably didn't notice straight away), I put a crackle accent to the pocket watch, for an aged look.

I add the inside now, Collette wants a peek hehehehehe.....at first I thought its not important since its only photos, till C ask for it...!!! here you go Lette heheheheheeh..........

I highlights some of the important events, like Birthdays, Chinese New Year, giving births ( I gave birth to my 3rd child that year), etc.

1 album consist of 4 photos . I deliberately put 1 photo to cover two pages, that way is more convenient to look at, since it's bigger, and I save half of my time to look for more photos, cos thats the hard part. Am tellin you, it ain't easy to look for 1 whole year photos collections (and I just started scrapbook, so not too narcissistic yet!).
The photos are all canvas laminated, and I stamp some of the pages. Cannot put any embellishments inside, since the box is pretty tight.
