Paper bag album

I have a friend who loves to make things on her blog so we decided to make a paper bag album and see if others will make one too.
Here is the start of mine. 
I went with brown, not sure why! 
The paper bag is the middle part of this album.
You make a top flap and a bottom flap with card stock and attach it to the side of the bag where it has those two flaps.
Its all over youtube so you can go there and see what I'm talking about. 
This is the inside and I made tags to go into the opening of the bag, see the left side is the opening of the bag and the right side is the bottom of the bag.
I put love on the back of the tag to keep with the live love laugh theme. 
 Now all I need to do is put pictures in it an make it fun.
Since my oldest daughters birthday is coming up I might send it to her.  But, then I do have a bonus daughter who is having a birthday this month too so she just might get it for all of her fun stuff...I miss that girl.
This is the front cover. It needs some personality that's for sure.
This is the start of my paper bag album.
Hope you try to make one too.

That's the number of page views I have had on this blog!
Shocking to say the most.
Since I have no followers.  And nobody leaves me a message ever, how is it that people stop by and see what I have put on this blog?
I found another blog so I have been playing on that one over at word press.  I have 63 people from all over the world who leave me comments and silly things that make me laugh every day.
Why do I come back here?
Well, I guess I like to talk to my self and see if others stumble by to hear me talk.
Happy Labor Day to you, all 4567 of you.
I had my first child on a very hot Labor Day 28 years ago.  A day I will never forget. A child who I have broken my back for, went to bat for him even when he was wrong, and will still love him just as much today as I did the first time I saw him.  He has broken my heart many times in the past few years but, I will never give up on him. My Mother always said, "don't have kids, all they ever do is break your heart".  She was right about that but, maybe I have broken their hearts along the way too.
Thanks for listening and making 4567 reasons to stop by.
