Mini album competition

Today I'm gonna show you the mini album I made for the Craft Barn Mini Album competition. I have to admit that I could hardly make it, cause today is the last day and it's 11 o'clock at the moment.
So onto the album. There were 9 sketches given, which we had to follow. I don't want to show the sketches, the post will be long anyway.
I will give this album to my mother, I collected her pictures from her childhood.
The base is a Maya Road tab album, and I ended up breaking/ cuting it into pieces, because while I was builing it up the pages took  strange shape, so decided to bind the in another way.
On the cover there is this lace flower which I made myself following Marion Smith's live show.

The first page: the little paper rose was made by me.

Second page:

Page 3: Aren't these pictures cute??
