Paper Bag Mini Album-Pic Heavy

Hello my crafty friends, I hope this Friday is a happy one for you and that you are looking forward to a nice weekend. We are supposed to be lower humidity and temps, so I'm liking that! 

I have a little tiny mini album I made. And I do mean tiny. lol It is 3.75 x 3.50 with the lid and covers on.  Here is where you will find the directions to it if you want to make one. Helen is amazing and has her own line of stamps, papers and dies. I love watching her and seeing the creations she makes. So I wanted to try my hand at making a tiny mini paper bag album. Decided to go with a fall theme, so I used digital images in this little mini. Papers were from my snippets piles and a 4.5 x 6.5 paper stack by DCWV. Had snippets in there as well, but also used some whole sheets. This mini is great for using some snippets up. So here is my tiny mini. As always my supplies will be listed at the bottom in the recipe section. 

I kept the outside simple so nothing would get caught on anything. I also made a little "lid" to go on the top of it, to give it a finishing look if someone wants to keep it on a shelf or something. 

This is the back of the mini. Can write "made by" or the date in the frame. 

 Both sides look like this. 

 The bottom, and of course the top looks the same as well when you take the "lid" off. 

 Yes, I forgot that I was going to use magnets to hold it closed along with the lid, so didn't get them under my paper to be hidden. Oh well, I can live with it, but would have preferred them to be hidden.

 Inside cover and first page.

 Second page-on the left is a pocket on each page, on the right is the opening of the paper bag so it has two places to put photos on mats.

 Here is where the two mats are, so could put 2 photos on each or one photo and journaling on the back. 

 I think this digital collection is adorable. I didn't use any of the papers from it, but will next go around. Just used the images, tags and such. Hope you enjoyed this little mini. 

Thank you for taking time out of your busy summer and visiting with me for a spell. I always love to hear from you as you bring lots of sunshine into my life! I will be by to visit you as well soon. Happy Weekend!

Edited to add that I am going to join in at the Snippet's Playground. I haven't been over to play in quite some time, so it will be nice to go over and see everyone.
