My very own creation!

Ok, so nothing interesting was on last night and I decided to make up my own mini album. My best friends birthday is soon and wanted to make her something extra special. This is what I came up with. Let me first say that I took Kathy Files (paper phenomenon) idea for the binding/hidden hinge of this book but changed it up a little and smashed it with my own flair. Or something like that!! I'm sure somewhere someone has came up with these page ideas and I in now way intend on stealing someones ideas or anything like that I'm just doing what pops in my brain.

I wanted to only use 8 1/2" by 11" paper as well as I have hordes and hordes laying all over my scrap room. :) the pages measure 5 1/2 by 7 1/2. The tags stick out about  1/4 of an  inch from the pockets.

This is the first page closed. As you can see it's a flap the green is just peaking out on the left side. The page flips open to the right. 

This is the first page with the flap open.  

The 2nd and 3rd pages. Between the 1st and 2nd page is a pocket and the 2 pockets on the right are on one page. 

Just a close up of the pocket page. 

This is the 4th and 5th pages. Actually the previous pictures and the page with the hearts are all on page assembly. The 2 pockets on the right side are the 2nd page assembly but each creates a "typical page"
The pockets on the right are not joined together or on another page as are the previous 2 pockets although they are the same size. 

Just a picture to show what I  mean by the pockets are not joined together. They are only joined at the binding but move left and right freely of each other. (I'm not making sense am I? LOL)

 And I decided to put the same size pockets facing each other. 

... and the process starts all over again.  

Hope you enjoy looking!
