Wonderland Chipboard Album

My project of the week has been this wonderland of a mini-album.  It took about 3 1/2 days of sanding and inking, but I'm so delighted with the results!
I used almost every sheet of the Hallowe'en Alice in Wonderland line from Graphic 45 on this baby.
On the front is a HUGE sparkly flower (3 layers deep) and a glazed brad by Basic Grey.

Upon opening the chipboard album, you're greeted with LOTS of fun ephemera to look at ~ hanging tags, hand-cut 3D embellishments, stick pins and ribbon! Each piece has been sanded and inked with brown and black. A photo will neatly tuck under the corner tear of beige paper.

The next page reveals a VERY merry un-birthday tea party!  I made room for a larger photo here (you can tuck it underneath the strip) and a 3D pop-up title label with more of the glazed brads.  Adding the black glittery flower at the bottom was my 4-yr-old's idea.  Great eye, Jackson!

This next page is my hubby's favorite.  He loves the rabbit tag with key charm at the top of the page.  It pops up with lots of 3D foam adhesive.  I've also tied it with brown string.
There is room for 2 more photos (you can tuck them under the ribbon) and a hand-cut Mad Hatter.
Finally, the back has more fabulous cardstock, all inked with several colors to give it an antique, burned look.  The album is about 5.5x9 inches.  Enjoy!
