ABC Paper Bag Album

Are you in the mood to pull out your old templates and do some paper-piecing for an ABC album??? :D I created this paper bag album about 4 years ago for my son. It has held up pretty well, and I thought that some of you may be interested in seeing it, even though it's "old". :D

It was a blast to put together! Infact, I remember staying up all night and ignoring my family for a day to get it done! LOL!

The papers and letter stickers are from Leaving Prints (out of business) and the paper-piecings are from various sources: templates, made up by me, inspired by someone else, etc. I'll try and make notes about them where I remember. The words look like they were stamped, but they are actually a font from the computer. :D
