Mini Album for my Secret Sister

The Crazy Cropper Scrapbooking Retreat is almost here!!  I am needing this retreat in a BIG way!!  Life has been crazy busy with two shows at the theatre back to back, school starting, and well, just.... life.  Anyway, I am very much looking forward to a weekend of almost-uninterrupted scrap time.  (I say almost uninterrupted because I will have to leave the retreat for a few hours for my cousin's wedding.)

One of my favorite things about the retreat is the Secret Sister swap.  I am so excited about this mini-album I made for my secret sister. (Shhhh!  Don't tell!!)  I did not add any kind of title or words inside - the idea is for her to add her own titles, photos, and journaling.   I hope she loves it as much as I do!   I used this YouTube video tutorial to get started:  Cardstock Flip Mini Album

Finished album is approximately 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" when closed.
The closure is Spare Parts from Hobby Lobby.

Opening the cover reveals 4 center pages that open alternately, and have spaces for 4x6 photos.
Both sides open up to reveal binder rings with 6 pages on each binder ring.   These pages have spaces for 2" x 3" photos and journaling.  There is plenty of room for more pages if she wants to add to it.
The center back has 9 waterfall style pages.

The paper is the Caprice collection from Close To My Heart, and uses Bamboo, Chocolate, Crystal Blue, and Honey cardstock.   I inked all the papers and stamped the journaling spots with Chocolate ink.  Journaling stamps are from Autumn Leaves.
