 Some pages open up, like these brides page and contain pockets and tags.
 Double pockets to hold lots of photos and memories too.
 Gorgeous laces were also used.
 Some silver and of course, flowers.

Photo/Travel Keepsake Memory Book

 Oh what fun I had creating my latest memory/photo journal. This book opens from the center out which is a first for me. As you can see, it's painted a wonderful and bright blue, just like the deep blue sea.
 The front is decorated with seashells, flowers and some embellishments. There is a brass hook closure which brings the two covers together. This book measures approx. 7" across and a little over 6" high.
 The left front opens to a waterfall for photos or writing.
 There is a smaller waterfall on the inside back. Decorative papers were used throughout and so if you chose not to use the waterfalls for photos, they are beautiful just the way they are.
 Once open, the center page contains a nice size pocket with tags. Perfect for storing photos, notes or memos.
 More pockets, but this page has one on the side with the opposite page plan to use for a nice photo, map or memory of a great time.
 The papers I used on this book of acid free and good quality. The decor is so nice and I also fussy cut paper for embellishments like the crab above.
 Another side pocket and tags.
 You can see, there are plenty of tags and a lot of room for keepsakes here.
 You will find a sea theme throughout this book.
 There are also some wooden embellishments and tags that resemble old maps.
 A lighthouse on this double sided pocket so things can easily slide in and out. Page on opposite side is blank for photos. The photo below shows the back or last page of this gorgeous book. You can find this book for sale in my Etsy shop.

THIS CUTEST BABY BOY BOOK

 I had so much fun this creating this latest junk journal. My baby girl book sold right away and so I thought I would give the baby boy's a little attention this time around. I am so happy that I did, because this is the cutest book I have ever made. I am lovin the baby clothes on the little line on the cover, there are also little clothes pins, just too cute.
 Pearls and lace as well as ribbons and flowers, a place for a baby photo on the front cover.
 Lots and lots of pages to fill up as well as tags for all the memories.
 I had some Graghic 45 paper and was able to use all that I had. This is where I got the paper doll cloths from. As you can see, this page has tags for photos or for journaling. The opposite page has a flap that opens with more space for adding all those photos and clippings.
 I did some fussy cutting too.
 I love the use of magnets and there are lots of those in here as well.
 Baby feet and hands, ribbons and more.
 The one thing about this book that is so wonderful is all the room for journaling and keeping alive the moments you don't want to lose.
 I have a butterfly punch and it got a work out in this book. They make a nice embellishment.

 I have included an envelope pocket for a lock of hair or something equally special. There is a little silver tone charm attached with a small blue embellished safety pin.
 More flaps and pockets, because you just can't have enough.
 The last page has a photo waterfall. Just makes me smile.......

MY FIRST BABY BOOK/JOURNAL

 I am so excited to share my first scrap booking book with you. This was handmade by me and it's all from scratch. The front cover holds two tags and showcases roses, lace and of course the words, it's a girl.
 When you open the first page, you will find a place for a special photo along with two flaps that open out to reveal tags for journaling. There are also graphics that have been fussy cut from graphics 45 paper.
 Here you have some pearl decor with a flap that opens. This would be a great place for photos of the new addition or family. You can flip up the following page for more photos or keeping those special moments together.
 More flaps and tags. The pearls and lace add so much to a book for a little one.
 Glittered letters on the side with more tags.
 You can never have enough tags to journal those special times and memories. That also are wonderful for small photos of family members and friends. It's a girl paper on a page large enough for photos.
 I love the baby feet, the colors and I have to admit, although this was my first baby book, it will not be my last. I had a ball creating this keepsake.
 The last page features a waterfall for three photos as well as a larger photo on the left.
Such a sweet cover. I did not share the back, but it's the same pink paper with lace along the side. Closes with a clip and ribbon. I hope you enjoyed seeing my latest creation and will come back for more.

Just A Little Share

 I don't usually post photos of my work on this blog because I have a business blog that I prefer to post on, but today I decided that it's been awhile since I posted in here, and well, it was just easier for me today. Sorry, but I have been so very busy since last year, that I just haven't had the time to post what's been going on in my life and I guess that makes me a bit lazy, I promise to try and do better going forward.
 Meanwhile, I will share with you the hanging strawberry sachets I have been creating and listing. I wanted to get these bits of gorgeousness done before Mother's Day as I think they make the perfect gift.
 Vintage buttons and vintage linens were used on some, pearls and laces, what more could a person ask for?
 These are pretty enough to hang on a Christmas tree too, don't you think? If you are a lover of Victorian ornaments, Oh my, these would be wonderful.
 Lightly scented with dried lavender buds for a fresh scent in a drawer, of hanger in the closet.
 There is just too much pretty going on in here today.
 This blue sachet was made using a napkin I found at the flea market, Ooh La La. What a great way to re-purpose.
 Handmade paper roses.
 Appliques too.
 A bit of bling will get me every time. Of course, all together they make quite the statement. I hope you loved this little share today. You can find them on my website, http://someplaceinthyme.com
