Boxed Accordion Album

Hello Peeps how are you on this cold and snowy day?.....I am in the basement and I just finished this project that I have been working on for the last week or so.....the tutorial is by Cristi Maron and purchased from Paper Hoarder papers are  a 6x6 pad called Madeline Collection from Prima.
My daughter in law had asked me to make her granddaughters albums to store pictures and memorabilia of there deceased daddy and I thought this style would be perfect...the top has magnets that hold it closed.

than when opened has 12 pockets to store pictures and small layouts in.

I added tabs on my tags in the pockets so they would be easier to remove.

added some stick-on hardware and painted wooden beads for the feet used glossy accents to reinforce all of the extra's.....didn't put a lot of embellishments because I didn't feel it needed many. 

Entering my project in the following challenges.
