My First Card and Envelope Book (VERY photo heavy)

cad and envy book 025
 Finished! Finally Finished!  This was a lot of fun to make, but turned very time consuming, I had to go back to the video to check things, then all the flip flop prints were printed on the PC. Using Sew-In Inkjet Fabric Sheets,  I printed a background from McMahon Five Designs and covered the front and back covers.  On the front I had added “Enjoy the Journey” using Print Shop.
The binding is a silver duct tape with a ribbon closure.
Pictures below of all the pages.  There are photo mats, today journal. post cards, ATC, cards and tags through the whole book.
Can you figure the theme is flip flops and palm trees??? LOL

Well, if you made it to the end of all the pictures, I'm honored!
 I'm not real satisfied with the binding system I used, or the outer binding, but it was a great learning experience!!  I did look through You Tube and found a different type of envelope book with a simpler binding, that allows for more bulky stuff.  I think it is going to work WAY better.  I'll let ya know when I get in finished, it is already put together (went together really quick----and I LIKE THAT) now I need to get busy and get it decorated and tags made for it.
Hope your Sunday is or has been SUPER!
