This is the project I created:

and with a couple of folds plus my sewing machine created this
It is then decorated with paper from both the
(hoarded all the way from 2009! YES I had a moment of silence before I cut into it)
and A Place in Time.

others are misted or stamped on.
Here the tags are out showing underneath them.
and with the tags in.
Lots and lots of room to write ideas and thoughts down.
The next set of pages with tags in and...

The flowers and bling added on top with a few beaded stickpins as the
Little bit of fabric from fabric stash
(yes I am an equal opportunity hoarder)
was sewn on to created a binding.
