Autumn Fun- Pocket Mini album-GC

So, have I said how much I love love love making mini albums?, well, if I haven't, then I DO, I DO, I DO..LOL
and what a great way to spend a hour of your evening, than sitting in front on the computer and checking out some great videos on tube on different styles of minis.. I seen this cute little pocket mini made with business size envelopes by : Follow The Paper Trail

You can find her awesome tutorial video by clicking .HERE.
and please leave her some much deserved love, She is just amazing!!..
and I knew as soon as I seen it, that I had to try to create one.. I was super quick and embellishing it was so much fun.. Tried to control myself though..LOL
Here is the cover to the mini, which I cut from yet another cereal box and I did the back as well.. from what I remember, its a 6x5 cut..not super sure though.. :O)

Used some Prima flowers, a chipboard element and then I cut the title "Autumn" with my cricut.
And then for the inside of the mini album..
I took two photos of every page.. one with the tags in place and then another where I had pulled all of the tags out..
