Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

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.

 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.......
