Olde Curiosity Shoppe Mini Album

The Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week is "Anything Goes!"...of course that's my favorite type of challenge so I decided to make a mini album for it. This album is a little bigger than my hand and fits perfectly into my small purse..I love it!

I used Kraft Cardstock for the cover/spine and page bases. I used papers from the Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Collection, Ranger Distress Inks, Tim Holtz Idea-ology goodies, Tim Holtz Tissue Tape, Wendy Vecchi Blossom Bucket Eyeglasses, Crochet Cotton to bind the album and Seam Binding for the closure.
Here is the front cover:

Some of the inside pages:
I also made 3 sections to keep track of my Crafting Wishlists, Notes and Ideas, RAKS and Swaps:
