whimsical valentine's day paper bag scrapbook album

This is the other paper bag album that I made to sell on eBay for Valentine's Day.

I made my own patterned paper using stamps and paint. It was time consuming, but I like how it all coordinates.I used a polymer clay charm on the cover.
This is the first layout above. I used the flaps as library card pockets.
Above you can see the layout with the flap opened up.
Above is the second layout.
This is the third layout above with another library pocket flap...
This is the third layout above with the flap opened up.
This is the fourth layout above.
Again, the fourth layout above with the flap opened up.
This is the fifth, and final, layout above.
...and above: the back cover.
...and finally a side view.
