21st Guest Album for Darcie

Not long after I finished the 21st album for Danielle, I received an email request for another one! The design of the album was based on the original one I did last year for my niece Sarah. The album contains 14 concertina pages (15x15cm) for signing and it is totally handmade! The specifications for Darcie's album is the same 'Tiffany' colours as Danielle's album but with more pinks and no lace and not too busy. It took me a long while to track down the wooden number laser cut-outs as I bought the last '1' in the Kaisercraft shop last time! Two Spotlight shops later, I found some in Bunnings and bought 2 sets (just in case, for next time)!!
I used the Kaisercraft True Romance 6x6 papers for the album pages inside and Kaisercraft Porcelain Rose on the front cover. I just love these Kaisercraft collections! I'm submitting this project to Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes challenge and Simon Says Stamp and Show's Anything Goes challenge.
Here is my album, hope Darcie likes it!

The front and back were covered with 12x12 and the cover with 6x6 paper.

Close up of the key and the embossing on the numbers and name.

The front 4 pages on opening is made with one sheet of cardboard and scored at intervals.

The next 4 pages is on another sheet, joined in the middle, plenty of room for signatures and messages.

The back of the album consists of 6 pages, the join in the cardboard is hidden by using a patterned paper banner.

The rest of the back of the album - more room for lots of messages and signatures for Darcie!
