I was up very late last night finishing this album and bag as a gift for my Aunt and Uncle. I was so tired this morning I could hardly see it to take the photos!! I do love it and I'm going to make one for Mum for her birthday as she loves it too. The Paper Mill has fantastic white mount board in the shop just now and it cuts really well in the Cuttlebug. I cut all the letters from the board and inked and embossed them. I also inked the edges of the doily lace border and the large flower.
