Blessed on the Bright Side - Easter Hop

Hi everyone! Welcome to the “It’s Easter” Blog Hop to help you get ready for this wonderful Easter season. I am Monica and you should have arrived here from:
Joining me in this fun celebration are some of the most talented crafters that I know. There are few rules for this hop, in support of each crafter and the time they have put into their work, to be eligible for my blog candy you MUST vi...sit each blog and leave a comment. If you have started here at Blessed on the Bright Side.  If not, and just hopped on this blog, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us.

This hop runs from April 7th - 10th, so you have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop. Check out each blog and see what each blog has to offer for BLOG CANDY! Come back all 3 days to see some new projects, tutorials, and more.

Tell your friends about the hop for an extra chance.  Become a follower & subscriber here and you are eligible to win my basket of goodies below: (for my new subscribers from this hop you are eligible to win 4 flowers from my selection)  Check out my Artfire store to see my collection.


My creation is an accordion just in time for "Easter" accordion paper bag album that has some extra nooks and crannies in it.  Hope you like it.  I will be having some new videos & ustreams classes this month so be sure to hop back here every now and then.  Check back for the video it shows the album and its features so much more, but I was up until 2am trying to finish.  Better pic and the back two pages coming so come back!!!
  

 This is one side of the book it has two sides

pull down the flap for some mini frames and mini side pocket for tags or movie tickets, theme park tickets - heck anything you want really the sky is the limit on this one....

 pages flip up for another spot for photos - I thought this made it extra cool
this page has a pocket for some extras
 Another pull up page and these are Creative Memories papers (the solid striped ones) the colors are unbelievably gorgeous.... I absolutely love them!!
 Second Side of the Book
 Open this direction or see below the other direction


 Page has pocket
 Flip the page down and it has 3 photo mats

 Another flip up page

Also each page has an open for pullout photo mats (which uh, I have not put in there)  Each fold of the book has slit that has pullout photo mats.... plus the bottom of the page is a pockets see how it holds the egg...  You have 4 different ways to open this book and it is double sided - one side is Easter specific and the 2nd side is very Springy

Ok so you have seen my creation now its time for you to hop on over to :
