A quick bookmaking project

I worked on a fun book making project for my July technique article..had a blast making pocket pages from notecards.  I just love this combination of colors, a new favorite for me.  Here's some pictures of the details...and below, I've put the video to accompany it. Have a GREAT day!!! :o)

I love the embellies you chose for this mini, and the backgrounds you created are simple and so effective. It's a wonderful li'l book. But what drew my eye initially was the beautiful choices you made in color selection. Thanks for the video!
