I think I might like to try this... but I have never made a paper bag album before... can you direct me to a web site that has instructions?

Also, I want to be clear... We are only sending in the parts right... do we assemble anything besides the album? (adhere paper?) And we make 1 for each group? Or one for each person in the group?

Thanks C.C.!

Thanks!

Put me down for girl too! Can I ask that you send one back that is the most "grown up girl" one you get? It would be for me.

I LOVE doing these paper bag albums!
Question though... If I sign up for the "Fall" one, would I get a Fall one back?

I have done the "Dog" themed twice. My dachshund had puppies and I did one for me and one for my cousin who has the father so we will have "memories" of the puppies! You can see them in my gallery if you wanna see my work quality for this swap!
