2 girlie paperbag albums

Well hello all, yes it has been a whole week since I last posted any makings on here, I can't believe how time flies!! Most of you know that I have been nursing a very poorly little Maisie from quite a severe case of chicken pox all week, but thankfully she seems to have finally turned a corner and is looking a little brighter so it looks like the penicillin is working. Thank you for your well wishes, it's so depressing when they are really poorly isn't it.
Anyway, on a crafting note, I don't know if you remember but a few weeks ago I presented my little 6x6 paperbag album to Lacey for her 2nd birthday, and now have orders to make more!!! Last night i was able to begin and I chose to work on the two nearest occasions first (Anya and Romilly's birthdays). These are the personalised front covers, quite simple but girlie i think.

Also, following my favourite brown, pick, cream colour theme i made up this page using mainly papermania papers (i think!) and embelishments.

As Romilly starts school this September I wanted a school themed page (although I didn't have many schooly type stick ons so I may add more if I come across any)

I layered up some scraps of paperstock to create a birdhouse for this page, just to tie in with the birdie paper in the background. The little sign says 'a little birdie told me...). Forgive me this one, as it was getting rather late at this point and I really needed my bed. I will probably come back to this one also.
I don't know about you but do any of you find it difficult working in such a small space as a 6x6 (although more like 6x5 to allow for the punched binder holes)? Any tips??

Also, I wanted to thank the lovely Jessica at ~Bits and Pieces~ ( for giving me the beautiful blogger award. She is a very talented lady from Australia and her work is lovely, pop by and say hi!
Anyway, off to catch up with all of your creations now, catch you laters....
Love Jane xxx
