Calling all military wives looking for the perfect gift for your deploying husband! I created an album similar to this for my husband's most recent deployment to Afghanistan. It is great because there are places for photos of your family and home plus places for extra journaling and special messages and even an envelope to include love letters from you and your children. The last layout of the album is titled "Homecoming" and of course will not have photos - it serves as a visual reminder to the happy times to come.

PLEASE NOTE, I offer two versions of this album. They are the same EXCEPT in the "no children" version, the "Missing Daddy" poem will be replaced with a "Missing You" poem.

This 6x6 military deployment themed paper bag album is a perfect way to send your special memories along with your husband! It also makes a one-of-a-kind keepsake once he's home! The album is made of four brown paper bags which creates 16 pages including the front and back cover.

Embellishments used in this album include: lots of ribbon (grosgrain, satin striped, organdy), round brads, mini round brads, button, rick rack, staples, tags, eyelets, metal photo turns, paper clip, die cuts, small office envelope, shipping tag, flag picks, large flag patch, and 3D military shaped buttons. All ribbons/papers/mats have been inked with walnut ink to create a grungy feel. All photos will slide easily under ribbons, fibers & overlapping mats/embellishments.

There are 14 pages with photo mats ready to hold your photos. Page six has a pull out tag for hidden journaling. Page nine has an envelope labeled "love letters" for you to include a special letter(s) for your husband. There are four cardstock pull out page tags which measure 5½X5½. These can be filled with photos, journaling, mementos, or other special messages for your husband. **When I made this for my husband, I secretly sent the album with him in his bags. I kept the page tags at home and mailed him one with each care package I sent. I included the most recent photos of us and also a love note on the back of the page. This way he always got a glimpse of home with his care packages.**

I always include an instruction sheet with my albums to guide you in cropping your photos to the correct size.

The materials used to create this scrapbook album are acid & lignin free and are safe for your photos. From a smoke free home. I will package this carefully so it arrives to you free of damage. Please email me with any questions. Thanks!
