Book of Remembrance

I was commissioned to make a book of Remembrance so I thought I would show it to you tonight as I have just finished it, I have one more to show but its not quite finished yet.
I cut the pages using my own design die, the front and back covers is cut from chipboard and covered both sides.
The pages are double thickness acid & lignin free card and all pages are overlaid with die cut open page leaves cut from K&co and Vanessa Arbuthnott designer papers.
I have also used Luxury Prima flowers , coloured brads & crystal brads, Tibetan silver charms, Martha Stewart's Adhesive gems and pearls etc the album is bound with 2 large hinged book rings garnished with May arts ribbons, the Stamps used are from Nicky's sympathy range at Stamping all day .
