Springtime in Paris

Hello again - just back with a quick post to share a little album I've made for a friend.  Here's the front cover:

 I love making these little albums and finding loads of images to go with my theme.  I used the Madame Payraud papers for the covers but sad to hear these have been discontinued so I won't be able to replenish my stash.  I'll have to keep watch for them on sale anywhere as they are such lovely muted colours and great designs.  I also used my new TH bow die here on the bouquet of flowers and pearl pins.  Inside, I really went to town with 6 pages - I thought the first and last pictures could be the two of us having a refined afternoon tea and a good old gossip!
The album is tied with some lovely purple seam binding I've had in my stash for ages and just fitted the bill.  Hope she likes my little Parisian themed book.  Thanks so much for coming to see me and I hope you are enjoying some Bank Holiday sunshine.  Margie x

I'm entering this in the Spring is in the Air challenge over at That's Crafty.
