Childhood memories

I've been working on a little project this week... my childhood album!
I kept changing my mind on what I wanted to do... a tin and digital which I started but they really didn't appeal to me as I wanted something to display properly.

So now I've made my own album up this week to hold 8x8 layouts. The paper has been chosen... basic grey bittersweet. I've had a 6x6 pad sitting here for ages so it's time I used it! I will also be using a little porcelain and urban prairie too...

But the cover of the album is now done. I've made it from scratch using chipboard and a d-ring centre I got from a file that was broken.
The binding is chipboard that I curved by dampening it and rolling it around a rolling pin... who said a rolling pin is only for cooking!!!

and I made the charms for the spine today ... the first time I've made them.

Here is the front cover..

And the detail pics....

The inside, minus pages (which i haven't done yet! all in good time.. lol)

So tell me what you think... I would love to know!

That is just totally stunning Toni - you are so clever. What did you use to make the charms?

Oh my goodness Toni, this is gorgeous! You've done an absolutely fantastic job making this folder... and from scratch too!! I'm in awe.
