FRENCH COUNTRY - PAPER BAG MINI ALBUM

I haven't lost my "like" for the paper bag album, they are just the perfect place to store small bits and pieces (hankies, notes and letters, postcards, cards of all sorts, recipes, button cards etc.) in addition to photos.  I know the friend this is going to has lots of memories to put into this.

I have trimmed all the edges with a green/orangey gold trim that did come from a Paris flea market (wishing that was me shopping), I think it gives just the right age and look to the whole.  I have used quite a bit of Glossy Accent Crackle throughout instead of any glitter.  Just the feeling I had about how it should look. The flower centers on the cover are a Memory Box die "Scalloped Posie".  A bit more vintage edging on the ends, a few old stamps, buttons, some twine, ribbons and other G45 embellishments complete this project. Oh,  I couldn't do French Country and not add a bit of Van Gogh :)
