Memory Book using Simple Stories

Yeah i am sitting here surrounded with my order of beautiful papers . . . swooning,lol!
Finally i have the Simple Stories new collection lines , Documented , Fabulous and Awesome wooohooooo,they are even more gorgeous in real life and i can`t wait to have the time to get crafting with them . . . if only i didn`t have to go to work!
Last week i had a ball creating a 6x6 chipboard album for a special order and used a mix of Year.O.Graphy,
Generations,100 Days of Summer and Destinations . . . Loooove and to be honest although the book was for an order i would have happily kept it,lol!
The only thing i didn`t add was the journaling which the customer will add , here are some pictures i thought i would share with you all.
Front cover :
Finally got my sewing machine working again and added some extra detail with the stitching.
 Pages just waiting on the all important journaling . . .
I adore all the journal and flash cards,they really helped tell a story in this book.
All the way through i have hidden tags and envelopes to be written on.
The picture after this is an uncle and his nephew . . . not many years between them.
 I really enjoy working with BLK/White pictures!
When you untie the string the picture and postcard lift off to reveal a hidden envelope for secret journaling.
The page up above on the left is actually a little matchbook album and houses i think it was 6 pictures.
The page above on the right opens up to reveal journaling tags with even more pictures.
I adore these pages,the papers just shout "Summer"and behind the left hand tag . . .
and more . . .

and behind the right tag  and the last page . . .
If you are still here thank you so much for looking and hope you like what you see,would love you to let me know what you think.
I hope to get a little gander at it once all the journaling has been filled in bringing it to life . . . sure hope he likes it!
I have another project to share tomorrow and i really do need to take all the pics of my Fat December Daily and get them posted.
Till then
Have a great day
