Altered Pocket Album

Ok, ok, quick post for today. This is a little pocket album card. I had made one of these for my mother's 61st birthday when we had a party for her and then I had sent out ahead of time with the invites little pieces of cardstock and asked people to write a little note to my mother or send photos that I could include in the album. It was a lot of fun so I made this one for my aunt in case she wanted to do something similar for her friends that have been married for 50 years. The paper is some paper someone sent 1/2 sheets of to me and I was able to coordinate enough of them to put it together for a vintage look. I am please with the way it turned out and it is fairly simple to make. Here is a picture of the inside when you open the card/album. Each of those are pockets so she can attach pictures on the top and the bottom and then slide things into the pockets. I also made some really cute embellishments but I did that last minute before I left so I never got a picture o them on it. But it really finished it off.
