Celebration Album

So this last weekend I had the urge to create something different, something that maybe I had done something like in the past but something I had not done in a LONG time.  So I set to make a card/album/folder.   Now this is a little bigger than your average card, it is basically 8.5x 5.5.
 I can't even recall the paper- it was in a stack of 12x12 that I have had for a long time and just never used.  I adore the colors of baha blue, celery and a little brown in there.  I just could not help adding that striped ribbon either and just scrunched it up as it went down the side of the album.  The sentiments in this project are from Verve.
So this image is a little bit closer and you can actually see the little dots that I made with the plastics last year,  I am very surprised at how well all the different colors match all my different projects. 

And then a picture of the inside of my album/folder. On the left side both are little pockets that I build to hold either little gift cards or little notes/tags.   On the right there are little slide in pockets (x2), alittle bit bigger things could be tucked in here.  I picture this as a graduation card/folder and you tuck in some memories, gift cards, maybe a series of little pictures.  Or it could be a card/folder for someone turning 40!  All your friends send you little notes or photos of memories of you..... something like that.  

I would love to hear what you all would do with something like this!  I am considering opening my Etsy store back up and trying to sell some of these little memory makers.
