"You Rock" mini album (part 2)

Whoops ... thought I had shared this already but had left my post as "draft" ... hence why it didn't publish. Some days I do worry myself.

Anyhow here is the 2nd part of my "You Rock" mini album that I created from "scratch" using the wonderful Sticks and Bones collection from Polka Doodles. The post sharing part 1 of the mini album can be found HERE ...

As a quick reminder, here's the front cover ... (top view)
... face on view

In my previous post I had reached page 5  and now to share page 6 onwards ... so here is a photo of pages 6 and 7. Page 6 is an area to place a photo but for page 7  I made an acetate storage pocket to store, well anything you want.


Here is a close up of page 7 and you can see than the envelope is secured with a button clasp. I have used the acetate envelope to store tags and tickets. The T-Rex image has been cut out and stuck to the front of the acetate envelope as added interest.


For pages 8 and 9, I used the great background pages from the collection as my backgrounds for the photo mats. However on page 9 I also created another secret pocket and have added some journalling tags.


Here is a close up of page 9 and the tags ...


Pages 10 and 11, in comparison to some of the other pages, are a little boring as they have been mat and layered ready for photos and journalling but can you see something peeking out of the top?


I have created a secret pocket for either a photo page or any memorabilia you might have. However for this mini album, I have made a photo page ...


I have taken the pterodactyl digi image and added it to a age I decorated using complimentary pages. Next, I cut around the shape leaving a border and at the same time, created an alternative way of extracting the age from the secret pocket. As an added extra, I have printed off the pterodactyl word art, adding tot he bottom of the page.


Page 12 and 13 (back inside cover) have been designed to mat photos straight to the frame areas. On page 13, (which is the back inside cover),  I have used various small scraps of papers (from previous pages) and created a patch work effect background.


PHEW! Think that is everything but not 100% sure I have shared everything but will stop now as this post is extraordinarily long already and I thank you so much for baring with me so far. I am really enjoying getting back in to making mini albums and have another 3 to share with you but might, if I am brave enough, share all the page via a video ... oohhhhh, watch this space!.

We have decided as a family to have a "crusty day" and lounge around in PJs and spend time together watching a few films and digging out a few board games. I hope you  have a relaxing Sunday too,

Lou
