Ali Craft Monthly Blog Challenge #1

Hiya All
I created this little 4x4 mini album for Ali Craft's first Monthly challenge.  You can find their blog here -
The base pages are pocket pages made out of white 300gsm card which I have inked.  The paper I used is Graphic 45's Secret Garden collection.  I used the leftovers from an earlier project and had just enough left for this small mini.
Here are the pages:-
Front Page
Pocket Page and tags
A corner pocket made from acetate. 2 lines of mesh bling and punched flowers with 2 flat backed pearls and 2 fancy edge tags.
A flip up page made into a pocket that holds two stamped and distressed tags.The front of the flip up has guipure lace from Wild Orchid Crafts that has been coloured by spectrum noir pens.  I distressed 2 heart cut outs that I got from eBay.  The flowers I punched out using a flower punch and the flat backed pearls I bought at the NEC in Birmingham ages ago.  The stamps I got when I attended a craft workshop at Ali Craft.
This page holds a double slider card made into a pocket.  There is one tag behind the pocket and one tag in a corner pocket on the front of the double slider.
This is a fold out held closed by a magnet.  There is a pocket behind it holding a tag.
This is a swivel page.
This is another double slider page.  I've got the hang of making them now.
A decorative page with a tiny fold out.
This is a peekaboo pocket fold out. 
Back page.
I really enjoyed making this mini album.  I hope you enjoy peeking at my photos.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.  I love this paper, it's fantastic!!!!!!
