Happy Birthday Wallet!!

Hey friends,

How is everyone doing? Blog land has been fairly quiet recently except the few names which regularly pop-up.. Guess everyone's got their plates full..!!

I was recently working on a very special project.. A photo wallet.. Had been meaning to try it since I had seen the tute on YouTube.. Had fallen in love with it completely.. So without wasting anytime.. I got out my supplies and started working on it.. It took me ages to complete this one.. Probably because I was confused on what color schemes to use...  Once the color schemes worked to my liking.. The embellishing drove me nuts... In the two albums I've made and posted I realized that embellishing an album is NOT easy.. At least for me... Any way's I've rambled enough.. I'll just go ahead and show you the photo wallet..

BEWARE: A LOT OF PICTURES.. Picture heavy is a mild term for it.. :D ( And I apologize for the shadows on the pictures.. The sun was SETTING and I just had to click the pics then because it was going to the recipient the next day)

The front cover of the Photo wallet


The view after the front panels open up



Individual shots of the panels.. This opens up to the top...Made a pocket to hold some hand cut tags....


 The bottom panel...


This panel I have made a pocket note card and stuck it... 



This is a photo insert.. The flap opens up.. You would see it more clearly in the next pic...



This insert is the left panel of the photo wallet after the top panels have opened up....Now the right panel...



Another photo insert.. This one is pulled out of the belly band!!


This is the lower panel... The sentiment tag was used as a buffer for the pic.. It slid into the empty space easily....


The lacy circle held a picture... Thanks for the lacy Circle Tee... :D


Another panel which holds a Gatefold card....And it opens up to look like... THIS


Personally this is one my favorite panels.. Just like how everything came in place in this one...This holds tags for journaling...

The opposite panel  is a photo insert...


This opens up to hold the photo insert and it looks like THIS


and the next.. ( are you guys tired?? ).. Just a bit more to go.. :D


This space is just for writing some mush... Everyone loves writing some mush right?


This is another panel for a photo insert....

And finally the base center which is left behind after all the panels open up...


The very popular petal flower envelope which opens up to look like this... :D...


This is the end of the photo wallet.. Now I shall tell you the supplies.. One by one.. :D That is another huge ask.. Phew!! I am genuinely sorry for the awful photographs.. They are even worse than what I normally click.. :-|

The CS's used are all Either Fabriabo or locally bought and I consumed a lot of my scraps...
PPs used:- This photo wallet was a huge drain on my PP reserve.. Well papers belong to some scrapbooking kits I've picked up from Phuket and Hobby Ideas Plus Echo Park Little girl plus some single sheet 12x12 paper available at Hobby Ideas and a few were a RAK from P
Embellishments are all from stash and some are stickers from EP.. So are the journaling tags.. The Lacy circle die cuts were a RAK from T, and so were those pink gorgeous felt blooms... The butterfly a RAK from A...The border punch is EK Success and the sentiment cards are from Itsy Bitsy
Stamp=> Penny Black Paint the town red inked using Unity Noir and colored using Glaze pens now available at lulupu...
The digi was a freebie I picked up somewhere.. The flowers used are from Itsy bitsy and the flower centres are done up using Pie Lane flowers, crystals and leaves.. Even used Pie Lane butterflies...

I just hope I haven't missed anything... The recipient loved it.. And I was thoroughly pleased with that.. This took a lot of time and effort and the smile was worth it...

Entering it for the following challenges:-
Cooking it up with Katie=> Fun fold + flowers
Celebrate the Occasion=> Just because And must use pink..  just because it was birthday time.. )
