Paper Bag Mini Albums

While I haven't been quilting, I've been working on this project; a paper bag mini album.  I've discovered I'm a quilter, not a crafter.  I don't have punches, inks, paper, card stock, rhinestones, glitter and all the other stuff that goes with this and you really need it with this project.  It took me several days just to figure out which colors I wanted on each page.  Maybe I just need to make or buy a card for my mom.     

The plan was to make one for Mother's Day but I'm at a loss.  I don't take pictures.  I don't have ribbons and buttons, lace and flowers.  Here's what I have so far:  I've managed to stress ink the main pages and have them in the book.  The pages fold out for more space and in the paper bag you can add another page.  Arghhh...filling all these pages is going to be a nightmare.  If I had the money I know exactly what I'd do and have it done and over with.  I actually love the album.  It was super easy to do.  It's filling it up that's killing me.  

From my Cameo and a design from Lori Whitlock I made this:  I love it, but don't know how to fill it up either.

Now that the weather has warmed up some, I can get out and start riding.  Love my Ridley so far.
