Purse Mini-Album- For my Mom's Birthday!

Hi everyone!
I made this purse mini-album for my mother for her birthday which is this week! Inside I included a wallet, a compact, cell phone, a passport (she's traveled to many countries with my dad over the years!),  sunglasses, key with key chain, and a lipstick. Each item in the purse has pictures of my family, even my sister's dog, Rocky! Some pictures are dated back to my childhood and some are recent. I used the Paisley Cricut cartridge to cut out the purse and items inside. I also used Laura Denison's accordion pocket binding for this mini album. (Thank you Laura for this awesome idea!) I used patterned paper, chipboard, rosette trim and braiding trim, pearl embellishments, button and butterfly embellishments from Michaels (Recollections), a butterfly charm from Walmart and a closure from Hobby Lobby. This was so much fun to put together and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. (This is my first mini album so I was a little nervous!) lol.
