The second half.....

Here is the second half of todays post.
I found some plastic sleeves that you insert into albums called flip pages. They are basically a normal plastic sleeve with another sleeve joined to it.  I bought two and put them into the album facing each other.  When they are opened out you have four pages in one long layout.  

In this photo (sorry about it being blurry) you can see the first two pages of the layout and on the right you can see part of the third page of the layout.
This photo shows the third and fourth page of the flip pages opened out. 
Now, I know for a fact that my sister in-law doesn't usually include journalling in her albums.  So, with this in mind, I designed the bottom half of all the pages with the orange panels to have hidden journalling areas. 
You just flip the orange panel down and Ta Dah!  I decided to do it like this for a couple of reasons.  Number one being that if my sister in-law doesn't use it you won't really know.  Secondly it allowed me to use all the space of the page to bring the focus to the photos.
Well, that's it.  Love to hear what you think.
Thanks for popping by and happy creating.
Cheers, Deb

  1. It is absolutely gorgeous. Love the colours and the lacing. Particularly like how you considered the journalling.
