Sew Many Challenges #19 DT Project

Hi all today is a new challenge at Sew Many Challenges and this week Anything Goes, yep you can enter any project you like.
Our sponsor is Stitchy Bear and the winner will get a choice of three images.
Here is my project there are quite a few photos for you to look at I hope you will find a little inspiration.

Well here it is....is it a handbag?..........scroll down and you will see lol.
The flower is from my stash the sentiment is from Sew Many Cards, the papers and card are SU. This second picture is a side view.
Now for the inside.........it is actually a mini photo album in the shape of a bag lol.
I followed Maria's tutorial and took me a little time because I only had one paper CD holder and it had writing on so I made a template and used some 12x12 papermania papers to make my own CD folders the middle I cut out with a scalloped circle Nestie and covered the inside openings with acetate for protection of the photos.
I used the Sew Many Cards image Ellis with Flower then using MCS graphics programme I copied the image and flipped one, I coloured both with promarkers then inserted them into the 'photo' slots. I used a punch for the flowers and card candy for their centres.
I took a couple of photos of the inside at different angles so you could have a better look.
This is a photo showing how the pictures are inserted and can be changed at any time but I rather like the look of Ellis, I hope you do as well.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my project and hope this inspires you a little.
I hope we see you at our challenge this week
Hugs to all.
