Enjoy the Journey Mini Album

About six months ago I started making the "Enjoy the Journey" mini album created by Kathy Orta from Paper Phenomenon.  About three months ago I finished the construction of the album. I wasn't sure whether I could be bothered adding the tags and few embellishments, since the purpose of making the album was to use the pretty paper and for the fun of constructing something. As I do not plan to use this album, though it is functional, I didn't think it was worth doing the final touches. Well yesterday I changed my mind and decided to just finish it and I'm very pleased that I did. I now know that I needed to complete the album in its entirety for me to be satisfied with the work/effort that I had gone to. I love how the album turned out.  Below are photos of the album but I have also done a video and uploaded it to YouTube.
